Botswana is considered Southern Africa’s premier game viewing destination. The remote wilderness, limited access for visitors and abundant game make for an exceptional wildlife safari.

Sustainable Tourism:
A Botswana guide travels with us through the National Parks. This ensures employment for local people and direct benefits for the community from tourism. The local guides are highly knowledgeable so please ask plenty of questions, you’ll be amazed at what you can learn.

This safari starts at Maun airport where you will be met and after a short briefing, you will board a light aircraft flight to Khwai. You will then be met by your safari guide and enjoy your first game drive to the lodge.
Moremi Game Reserve is the jewel of Botswana and arguably one of the best wildlife viewing destinations in Africa. To the north of Moremi is a vast wilderness consisting of open grasslands and forest and abundant wildlife. Our lodge is situated on a large concession in this wilderness, overlooking a waterhole, the thatched deck allows us to watch the animals in the afternoon as they come down to quench their thirst. Moremi’s wide variety of habitats makes it a birdwatchers paradise. Our days are spent on open 4WD game drives in Moremi GR and on the wildlife concession along the Khwai River.
