safaris - as individual as you are.

Self-drive tours with tent through the wilderness of Botswana.

Overview:

There is certainly no safari experience more intense than driving your own off-road vehicle through the vastness of Botswana. At your own pace, wherever you want. See what interests you and stay where it's most exciting for you. To do this, set up a camp in the midst of nature, light a fire, prepare dinner there yourself and sleep under millions of stars...

You can experience all this on our self-drive tours in Botswana. You can choose your route completely by yourself, or you can choose one of our pre-booked tours, just the way you like it. Adventure and unforgettable experiences are guaranteed, and if you are unsure, we also have trainings on offer to help you prepare better and enjoy your safari more fully.

Day 2 & 3:
Camping at the Moreni Game Reserve

Travel time from Maun approx. 4-6 hours, depending on wildlife observation

You will spend two days in the Moreni Game Reserve. Located in the east of the Okavango Delta, this park is one of the most beautiful reserves in Africa. It encompasses more than 4,871 square kilometres of pristine wilderness, and the varied terrain includes savannah, winding waterways and dense forest.

This diverse ecosystem supports an incredibly wide range of wildlife, from large herds of buffalo, gnu and zebra, to the rare sitatunga and lechwe antelope, lion, cheetah and pack of wild dogs on the open meadows. The birdlife is fertile and includes most of the 550 bird species on Botswana's national bird list.

Day 4 & 5:
Camping in the Khwai area of the Moreni Game Reserve

Dismantling of the camp and onward journey in the direction of Khwai River.

The Khwai area of the Okavango lies along the northern border of the Moremi Game Reserve. This is an unfenced border that allows animals to move freely between the forests, where water is abundant during the rainy season, and the permanent rivers and lagoons of the delta.

The Savuti area goes through wet and dry cycles, and where wild dogs now hunt in the dry course of the river, crocodiles used to swim twenty years ago. Visitors to this spectacular area can discover many animal species including: a variety of birds, elephants, antelopes, lions, jackals and foxes, zessebes, kudus, hyenas, cheetahs, cape buffalo herds and thousands of migratory zebras and wildebeests.

Day 12 & 13:
Makgadikgadi Pans (Nxai Pan, Baines Baobabs & Njuca Hills)

Mostly grass eaters can be found now, followed by their hunters like lions, leopard cheetahs and many more. If the salt pans are flooded after heavy rainfall, they become breeding grounds for thousands of flamingos. You spend two nights here and explore this exciting area.

Day 14:
Khumaga

Day 11 & 12:
Kwando River, Caprivi Strip
These two days are dedicated to the national parks in the Caprivi Strip. The Mudumu, Bwabwata and Nkasa Lupala National Parks are all wild and little visited, and therefore offer a very special safari feeling. But with your all-terrain vehicle you are well prepared for this. The Mudumu National Park is ideal for a day trip.  The tracks are only accessible with off-road vehicles and can be influenced by rainfall and river levels, especially in the rainy season from November to April. In the Bwabwata National Park, an untouched and beautiful part of the Caprivi, you can often observe an abundance of elephants and buffalos. Nkasa Lupala National Park (formerly Mamili Park) east of Mudumu National Park offers open savannahs, beautiful leadwood trees, acacias and Mopanie bush land. Hundreds of buffalo herds are a common sight with Lechwe, Kudu and Impala in abundance.

Day 13:
Ngepi
The camp lies on the banks of the Okavango River in a beautiful location. It is known for its unique, crocodile safe pool in the river. From here you can take game drives to the Mahango and Bwabwata National Parks or visit the nearby Popa Waterfalls.

Day 14:
Tsodilo Hills
After breakfast you will leave Namibia and return to Botswana. Today's destination is the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tsodilo Hills. The four massive rocks rising up to 1489 meters form the highest elevations of Botswana. Unlike the previously visited wetlands, here you will find yourself in a desert-like landscape. Tsodilo is one of the places with the highest density of rock paintings in the world and is also known as the Louvre of the Desert. Local guides will show you (for a small fee) the rock paintings and tell you about the history of this magical place.

Day 15:
Maun
After the camp has been broken off, you will return to your starting point in about 4-5 hours, to Maun, where the circle closes and for you this means the end of this journey. Here you return your rental vehicle and depending on the program you have booked, you return to Europe from here or take part in the follow-up program.
