Botswana Price Guide


This Botswana price guide should be used to get an estimate of the cost of a safari in Botswana. The majority of our safaris are tailor made to our clients’ specific needs. Please kindly contact us for a tailor made safari to suit your individual requirements.

We recommend that you visit Botswana for at least 3 nights to maximise your safari experience (unless you are visiting Chobe from Victoria Falls in which case you could get away with only 2 nights), with preferably 6-10 nights at 2-4 different camps. There will be a time when you’ll need to utilise light air transfers between camps. Flights from Maun to Okavango Delta Camps are approximately US$140 to US$200 per person. Maun to Savuti/Linyati/Chobe Camps are approximately US$270 to US$330 per person for inter camp air transfers. Within the Delta/Moremi Camps, flights range from US$140 to US$200 per person. Delta/Moremi to Savuti/Linyati/Chobe Camps are between US$270 to US$330 per person.
Okavango Delta

This guide shows the difference in prices from US$ 300 in a comfortable camp to USD$900+ in a premier camp, the further away from the Okavango Delta you get the more affordable it gets. All are in stunning locations around Botswana’s prized wildlife areas.

Okavango Delta Price guide

The Okavango Delta is a unique ecosystem of papyrus-lined waterways, knee-deep floodplains, water-lily lagoons, shady forest glades and rich savannah grasslands. All this lies in the middle of the largest continuous stretch of sand in the world – the Kalahari Desert Basin. Seen from space as an emerald swirl surrounded by a parched landscape, the Okavango Delta is an incredible source of life in a country that is 80% arid.
Expert Botswana suggests that guests look to spend three nights minimum in the Delta, in one or 2 camps, then a few nights in Chobe National Park or the Linyanti Savuti Area.
Here is the list of camps and lodges that Expert Botswana recommends in the Okavango Delta. Our Best sellers include Xugana Island Lodge, Oddballs Enclave, Vumbura Plains and Shinde Camp.

It spreads over 10,566 square kilometers of grassland, mopane and acacia terrain in the far north. It is home to a breathtaking variety of animals and birds.

Linyanti Savuti Area Price guide

The Linyanti Savuti region covers an area approximately 5000 square kilometres in the south west of Chobe and became well known with the drying up of the Savuti Channel in 1981 and more so for its incredible game viewing opportunities. The region is a typical example of Botswana’s ‘miracle river’ system; the Savuti Channel, after all its decades of dormancy, is now a permanent water supply in the area.
The famous Savuti Channel flowing through the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve makes this one of Botswana’s best wildlife viewing areas. There are a number of camps making use of this wild location, offering everything from adventure camping to luxury lodging.
Our most popular camps are Lebala Camp, Zarafa Camp and Kings Pool Camp.

Central Kalahari Price guide

The Central Kalahari Game Reserve was founded in 1961 and is the largest conservation area in the country; at 5 million hectares (12 million acres) it is one of the largest in the world. The reserve was not founded to protect any endangered wildlife species, however to protect the San Bushmen. The aim was to provide a home for the San people in their natural environment and to ensure their survival and preserving their way of life. Deception Valley is one of the most ancient arid river valleys in the Central Kalahari and offers an iconic desert experience. Haina Kalahari Lodge and Kalahari Plains Camp are popular choice in this area.

Makgadikgadi Pans Price Guide

The Makgadikgadi Pans is situated in the central region of the country and covers approximate 12 000 square kilometres, the largest salt pans on the planet. The Makgadikgadi Pans are the remains of a great lake that once covered most of northern Botswana, fed by rivers carrying salts filtered from the lake’s catchment area. Because the basin had no outlet, the salts were concentrated in low lying areas. Less than 10,000 years ago, climactic changes caused the lake to evaporate, leaving only salt deposits.
For most of the year the area is dried up, however, as soon as the first rains fall, the region plays host to an alluring display of animal life. The water encourages one of Africa’s great migrations.

Tuli Block Price guide

The Tuli Block is situated between the Sashe and Limpopo rivers, this section of land forms a triangle where the international borders of Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa meet. The Tuli Block is unlike any other region in the country, offering its own majesty.
Set in a landscape of remarkable natural beauty, it consists of 12 000 hectares of the largest privately-owned game conservation area in Southern Africa. Known as “the land of the giants” with enormous trees on the banks of the Limpopo River, beautiful riverine forests of lime-green fever trees, rocky landscapes, carved from ancient granite and basalt rocks by numerous river systems over millions of years, the Tuli block, has without a doubt, it’s own kind of splendour. Tuli is also famous for leopards, as well as incredible star-gazing opportunities.

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park Price guide

Kgalagadi means “place of thirst”, which is aptly sums up the Park’s arid state, as it is located largely within the southern Kalahari Desert. The terrain consists of red sand dunes, sparse vegetation, occasional trees, and the dry riverbeds of the Nossob and Auob rivers. The rivers are said to flow only about once per century; however, water flows underground, feeding the plant life growing in its riverbeds and the wildlife dwelling within it. The rivers may flow briefly after large thunderstorms, which is a momentous occasion and results in the wildlife flocking to the riverbeds and quenching their thirst. This allows for magnificent game-viewing for visitors to the Park.

Maun Price guide

Maun is a gateway for exploring much of northern Botswana; for example it is the natural hub for visitors from outside the region to explore the Tsodilo Hills and the Makgadikgadi Pans. Although it retains a rural atmosphere with local tribesmen bringing their cattle to Maun to sell, it has developed an eclectic mix of modern buildings and native huts and now has shopping centres, hotels and lodges available. The community is distributed along the wide banks of the Thamalakane River where red lechwe can still be seen grazing next to local donkeys, goats and cattle.
