Group Size
Approximately 6 Travelers
A very important feature of our South Africa and Botswana safari is the limited group size, as Africa's natural wonders are best experienced in quiet seclusion, with a lighter footprint on the environment.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
In South Africa we use open 4x4 Land Rovers or Land Cruisers with a suspension system custom-designed for safari terrain, and an open-top, open-sided, tiered seating arrangement designed to maximize game-viewing opportunities and passenger comfort. Typically, each vehicle has 10 cushioned passenger seats, one in front next to the driver, followed by three rows of three seats each, though we limit our capacity to approximately six travelers on this safari, with a window seat for each person. Each row is raised slightly higher than the one in front of it, allowing for unobstructed views of scenery and wildlife. Vehicles have a cooler box stocked with cold drinks, a small library with reference books and field guides, and ponchos for each traveler in case of rain. Each custom-built vehicle sports front bull bars and runner boards, as well as a full recovery kit, including spare tires and a high-lift jack. Vehicles are updated or replaced as needed and meticulously maintained to provide our guests with an unmatched safari experience.
Our Private Leaders

  • Trip price includes: Accommodations, services of Nat Hab's professional Expedition Leader(s), local guides and camp staff, all meals from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast on final day, some alcoholic beverages, most gratuities, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, all activities and entrance fees, all taxes, permits and service fees.
  • Internal air cost includes: All aircraft flights within the itinerary.
Not Included

Physical Requirements
Easy 
A safari vehicle frequently offers a bumpy ride. Wildlife drives often involve long hours of sitting and sometimes bouncing around. While we don't consider this strenuous, it can be uncomfortable and may pose a physical demand on the body. All travelers must be able to climb into and out of raised 4x4 safari trucks. They must also be able to walk to and from the vehicle to our camp accommodations, sometimes walking over uneven ground or on boardwalks. Additionally, while any short walks are considered optional, you will get the most out of your safari experience if you can walk a mile or two over uneven ground without assistance. Days spent on safari can be long, as mornings typically start before daybreak and evening meals are served after sundown. Safari accommodations and vehicles are not climate controlled and, depending on the seasonality, temperatures can range from quite cold to extremely hot so it is critical that travelers come prepared. We recommend that all travelers have an adventurous spirit, as they will often enjoy the closest animal encounters.
Important Information About This Trip
Our Secluded South Africa and Botswana safari combines three spectacular wildlife camps. The itinerary involves quite a bit of travel—both by safari vehicle and by private aircraft—but in the company of our professional safari Expedition Leader, we've determined that our routing is the best way to explore this remote, diverse and far-reaching region that is replete with wildlife. Changes to the itinerary may occur in order to take advantage of conditions unique to the season and/or to accommodate unexpected changes in flight schedules; therefore, itineraries may need to be rerouted or redesigned without notice.

Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures (NHA), we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of NHA's medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
Please plan to arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa by 6 pm on Day 1 in order to attend a 7 pm welcome dinner. You are free to depart Johannesburg after 6 pm on the final day.

We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of these programs and can arrange the most efficient and cost-effective travel.
