Botswana accommodation

Botswana accommodation is exceptionally varied from sleeping out on the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan to luxury lodges and houseboats. We offer all lodges and camps in Botswana and will package accommodation and logistics together for seamless travel. We also offer mobile safaris for that extra African vibe.

Types of accommodation available in Botswana are mainly tented camps. As this reduces the carbon footprint. It must be remembered that these are usually small camps. Consequently; availability is often an issue in the high seasons (from July to October). And it is important to book early to avoid disappointment. However; in towns like Kasane (the gateway to the Chobe National Park) and Maun (the gateway to the Okavango Delta); there are some larger lodges. But they too get busy in peak seasons.

Botswana accommodation is usually in the game reserves or; on the outskirts of them. There are many options available to suit all budgets. Visit Chobe National Park to see all the elephants and wildlife. Okavango Delta which is a labyrinth of waterways where you can mokoro (a dug-out canoe). One of the many other parks / attractions in Botswana. Or visit the Makgdikgadi Pans on a quad bike and sleep under the stars on the salt pans! Or in a beautiful camp where can have a few more creature comforts.

We also have options in the rest of Botswana; so feel free to browse them all.

The options are limitless and we can package accommodations to make your Botswana safari seamless; so feel free to drop us a line to arrange for you. See Botswana Honeymoon for lodges that offer honeymooners discounts. If you are travelling with the family, our Botswana Family Safari page lists family friendly lodges in Botswana.

Okavango Delta Accommodation ↓

The Okavango Delta is the largest inland water system / delta in the world offering Mokoro safaris (dug out canoes) at some camps. Due to the vast amounts of water, it attracts large numbers of wildlife and birds. As a result; it is one of the best safaris regions in Botswana and indeed Africa. An Okavango Delta Safari is, therefore a must; for anyone visiting Botswana.

Where to stay in the Okavango Delta

In the Okavango Delta, in order to reduce the impact on the environment; camps and lodges are required to be non-permanent. This means, there are no large safari lodges in the Delta. Therefore, accommodation is smaller and more exclusive at the camps. Consequently; there are fewer vehicles in your concession.

Accommodation is defined by the activities each camp offers. With 3 general categories: Land, water, or mixed. We highly recommend combining a land camp with a water camp. But if you are short of time; using one mixed camp is good.

Water camps offer boating, mokoros, and walking. They focus on the unique delta ecosystem. With its distinctive waterways, birds, and aquatic creatures. Their locations do not usually support the big game or game drives. And as such; these are generally slower-paced safaris. One thing to note is the levels of water as when there is drought, this can mean boating safaris may not be able to operate.

Land based camps offer game drives and frequently walking safaris. While there is water around, water activities are not offered here. As conditions are just not suitable.

Mixed camps offer both land and water activities. However, this is subject to water levels. In times of drought; some of these camps can’t offer their water activities the whole year. There are a couple of camps that can guarantee water and land activities all year. But not all of them. It is best to check with us when you know your dates.
