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

Ian · Traveled January 2024
This is an wonderful trip and incredible value for money. Not for the faint hearted, you will get up close and personal with Africa's wildlife. The local people in the Okavango are a delight to be around. The team from Intrepid that accompanied us were brilliant.

Just do it!! This is a truly amazing trip and have memories that will last a lifetime. Our group leader Johannes enthusiasm is infectious, our driver Shadrack safety gets us to our destinations through all the potholes and our chef Enock keeps us so well fed. A truly great team. There are many early starts to see the animals or to get to destinations but well worth it. Buy into the whole experience and you will have the best experience.

Explore Southern Africa

Julie · Traveled January 2024
This trip is the adventure of a lifetime! So many off the beaten track experiences due to the leaders knowledge and experience. Often the only ones staying at remote campsites under the stars listening to the sounds of rhino, elephants and hippos! The tour of Kruger park with our guide Daniel was sensational ensuring that we got to see as many animals as possible! Definitely not a trip for sissy's due to the hands on requirement which adds so much value to the trip!

Okavango Experience

Amanda · Traveled January 2024
Wow. wow, wow What a trip some very early starts (4.00am) and no air conditioning on the bus but worth it. We saw so much, Victoria Falls by helicopter is amazing, and so was Chobe NP, Hwange NP in fact all of them! Best trip so far, saw the big 5 and much more. Our crew Bonnie, Abel and Somkhele were very professional and extremely helpful. Just book it you won't regret it!

Okavango Experience

Rebecca · Traveled December 2023
We ventured with Intrepid on this 10 day safari as a family of 6 adults. This totally exceeded our expectations, having so many cultural experiences included. We had truly authentic experiences, especially in the Okavango Delta itself. The group size of 13 was perfect, food was amazing, and the guidance from Happy Man was next level. We will be certainly considering Intrepid for our next adventure .
