Game Drives

Our game drives are designed to take you close to the wildlife rich spots of the protected areas. This gives you an opportunity to view wild animals in their natural habitat as they go about their daily activities.

Game drives are done during the day or night time, and the best times are early in the morning and late afternoons, when it is much cooler. Night game drives are however not allowed in the game reserve and national parks of Botswana but only offered in concession areas.

Our safari guides are highly knowledgeable and familiar with the protected areas of Botswana and are able to give lots of information about the animals and their habitats.

Guided Nature Walks

Tourists who prefer walking safaris are always offered with an opportunity to walk around to experience wilderness and wildlife, accompanied by fully qualified safari guide.

There you are introduced to the most beautiful landscape, wildlife species, identifications and picking of various hardly found natural items.

These activities are conducted from the early mornings and afternoons of the day.

Mokoro Excursions

The mokoro is a common type of canoe used to get around in the shallow waters of the Okavango Delta. The guide stands in the back of mokoro and pushes it with the pole to give clients tranquillity.

Traditionally mokoros are made from dug out trunks of a large straight trees, like ebony, and sausage tree but today, for conservation purposes they are more commonly made from fiberglass.

It gives the occupants a view of the delta and a feeling that they are actually floating ever so gently down the river.
