The casual visitor to Botswana could be excused for seeing the country as kilometre upon kilometre of flat, desolate scrubland with little or no surface water. But on closer inspection, coupled with local knowledge, a whole new world will manifest itself, and what is arguably Africa’s finest wildlife destination is revealed. Botswana is a country the size of France, with over a quarter of its land is set aside exclusively for nature conservation.

DAY 1: Arrival – Maun Lodge
You will be met by Drifter’s staff at Maun Airport, and transferred to the Drifters Maun Lodge. The lodge is located on the banks of the seasonal Boteti River outside Maun, and offers comfortable accommodation in tented units overlooking the river. This afternoon there will be time to relax at the pool, or a walk to explore the local village of Chenoga can be arranged. Tonight you enjoy a catered meal at the lodge.

DAY 2 – 3: Moremi / Khwai
You have breakfast at the lodge, before departing for Moremi National Park. You will travel in a well-equipped, open 4×4 Land Cruiser, with our local Motswana guide and a camp assistant. The 4×4 isn’t just for show, as the national parks are truly wild places, the roads just tracks in the sand. We will game drive in the park for most of the day, arriving towards sunset at our exclusive private campsite, which is no more than a GPS point in the bush, completely secluded and undeveloped. It is as if we are the first people here, and are alone in the world. We bring everything we will need with us, and leave nothing behind when we depart.
We spend a second night, camping at either the same site, and spending the day game driving, or moving to a new site, game driving on the way. Road and weather conditions, and booking availability will determine the exact itinerary.
The Private Botswana Tour offers the added value of a serviced camping experience in the national parks. During the camping part of the tour Drifters staff will handle the camp setup, with our staff erecting your tent and taking care of all camp duties. There is no participation required from you.
