13 Day Botswana Adventure Safari (Small Group) Tour Overview

Departing from Maun
Ends in
Livingstone

This is a limited participation camping tour with hot shower facilities (5 nights) by means of a bucket shower with hot water off the fire, in true African style. We do also experience wild camping with basic facilities (7 nights) which is the perfect way to enjoy Botswana. The tour provides all equipment such as sleeping mats (5cm thick) and chairs with backrests. Tents are large, spacious (2.2 x 2.2 x 1.8 metre with built-in insect nets) and easy to erect. It is a limited participation tour which involves putting up your tent (very easy) and packing luggage into the truck. The tour leaders prepare all meals but we ask for help in washing up (on rotation). The tour involves some long travel days on bumpy roads which means early mornings , ideal for an adventurous traveller. On your safari you will stay in designated camping sites within national parks, private reserves, private campsites and towns. Facilities are good with hot showers, electricity (for charging cameras), clothes washing facilities with generally bars and restaurants.
