Botswana Tours & Holidays

Home to large populations of wildlife, rugged national parks, wetlands alive with birds and one of the world’s largest deltas, Botswana’s bounty of natural treasures is remarkable.

With winter sunshine, a temperate climate and golden sunsets, it’s no wonder most locals have beaming smiles - they’re surrounded by some of Mother Nature’s greatest triumphs.

Okavango Experience

Jasmine · Traveled June 2024
I loved this trip from Johannesburg to Victoria falls!!! We had great food every day cooked around the fire by the chef. We saw so many animals including a rhino, hippos, and lions!!! I have not smiled and laughed so much in a long time! 1000% recommend!

Intrepid had a carefully developed itinerary; comfortable and safe overnight accommodations; wide-ranging travel and cultural exposure; and a caring and knowledgeable tour crew. Our particular tour leader, Siya, was enthusiastic, informative, and mindful at all times. Our driver, Shadrack, was experienced and inspired safety and confidence in us throughout 2000+ km. Thank you for such a wonderful and memorable vacation experience!

Botswana Adventure

Kerrie · Traveled June 2024
If I could I would give this trip 10 stars. Siya was engaging, fun, organised and knowledgeable about Africa. Shadrack got us there safely and on time over some pretty atrocious roads. Each area we visited was a highlight. The amount of wildlife we saw was amazing. The house boats with Sam's home cooking was a highlight. Accommodation hosts were friendly and helpful. Chobe Lodge was brilliant along with the game drives and boat tour at Chobe.

Explore Southern Africa

Katrina · Traveled June 2024
This was such a fun trip, packed with wonderful experiences. Our crew were fantastic and I’ll miss them all (especially Dineo’s cooking). The camping isn’t exactly hard but you do need to be very much prepared for long periods without showers and also some very early wake ups and long drives. If you can handle those things, you’ll have the trip of a lifetime. Africa is a beautiful place full of friendly people and amazing animals - just book it!
