Secluded Botswana Safari

Our Flagship Wildlife Adventure into the Heart of Wildest Africa
A Botswana safari offers an experience of Africa as it used to be. Far from tourist crowds, we find the wonders that drew adventurers to the continent decades ago. Vast herds of elephants still roam the acacia-studded savanna. Antelope, giraffe and buffalo thrive in the wetlands of the Okavango Delta and at watering holes that sustain life on the dry plains. Lions laze beneath mopane trees, an icon of genuine wilderness that's vanishing all too quickly in the contemporary world. Classic tented safari camps offer luxuries reminiscent of a nostalgic era in the African bush. You'll find it all here still, in secluded Botswana.

Trip Highlights

  • You won't find a more in-depth privately guided safari to Africa’s best protected reserves—and we've added an extra night for 2015, for even more wildlife encounters!
  • Outstanding Expedition Leaders know remote Botswana intimately, getting you closer to more big game and the predators that pursue it
  • Stay at isolated luxury bush camps in private reserves, offering unsurpassed comfort and incredible proximity to wildlife. 
There Are Important Differences in Botswana Safaris
Botswana is one of the last true wilderness areas in Africa, teeming with wildlife that thrives within a mosaic of healthy ecosystems. An exclusive safari destination like Botswana—a “once in a lifetime” dream trip for most travelers—is one to do right. While some companies run larger groups that stay in busy national parks or on the fringe of wildlife concentrations, our Secluded Botswana Safari delivers a remote nature experience of exceptional quality, replete with close-up wildlife sightings enjoyed in a peaceful and personal manner. Here’s how our Botswana safari is different from the rest:

  1. Maximum Group Size Just 8 Travelers!
    Nature travel is best experienced in small groups, and we run this safari with a maximum of just 8 guests and 2 staff leaders! This exceptionally small group size ensures the most remote and personalized safari experience possible.
  2. The Optimal Botswana Safari Itinerary
    This special itinerary has been designed in conjunction with World Wildlife Fund to provide a secluded and superlative experience of Botswana's prolific wildlife...far away from tourist crowds.
  3. Stay on a Private Reserve in Linyanti
    Rather than staying in more heavily visited national parks, we retreat to the isolation of the private Linyanti Reserve, with accommodations amidst a profusion of wildlife. We stay at a private tented camp — simple but exceptionally secluded —  to maximize the diversity of our wildlife encounters.
  4. Stay on a Private Reserve in Moremi
    Our private camp location adjacent to the famed Moremi Game Reserve allows for night wildlife drives in search of nocturnal species – a privilege not afforded to guests in the national park.
  5. Exploration on Foot
    Within the private concessions we visit, we can explore the African bush on short guided walking excursions, an activity that is not allowed in the public reserves.
  6. Private Verandas for Maximum Wildlife Viewing
    Luxury safari accommodations provide individual verandas for guests to enjoy personal time overlooking the wilds of Africa.
  7. Chartered Flights
    Charter flights (rather than long, dusty drives over rough dirt roads) between most safari locations allow us to spend more time actually participating in safari activities, rather than in transit.
  8. The World's Finest Naturalist Guides 
    Our guests enjoy the personalized service of some of the best-trained, most experienced naturalists in all of Africa – a Nat Hab hallmark. Your NHA Safari Expedition Leader will accompany your group from start to finish, ensuring a superior safari experience. Rather than using less qualified local camp guides at each stop, our Expedition Leaders are the most highly trained guides in Africa, averaging 15 years' experience, with additional training and resources provided by WWF’s top scientists. Our philosophy on this is simple: an African safari is only as good as the guide, so we must provide the very best! See Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
