The Ultimate Botswana Road Trip with Sun Destinations

By now you’re well aware that we’ve added a new camp to our Botswana portfolio of camps and lodges: Boteti Tented Camp. This rustic camp is an activity-focused safari destination located a stone’s throw away from Maun, the safari hub of the Okavango Delta. For the ultimate Botswana road trip, Boteti is best paired with Mboma Island Expeditions and Mankwe Tented Retreat. This trifecta offers the following: an introduction into the world of water-based mobile safaris, Botswana luxury living, and wilderness exploration.

Mankwe Tented Retreat: Luxury living in a simple retreat-style safari lodge

Mankwe Tened Retreat is the most luxurious Botswana lodge within our portfolio, and bridges the divide between a luxury safari lodge and simple tented camp. On-site, there are two swimming pools, ample relaxation areas, bar areas, and gorgeously spacious rooms. Mankwe’s traverse extends all the way to the Khwai River frontage, an area renown for its plethora of predator sightings. Game drives take place on Mankwe’s traverse, while optional full-day safaris into the Moremi Game Reserve can also be booked.

Boteti Tented Camp: A rustic camp on the Boteti River

An absolute highlight of booking Boteti Tented Camp is that it’s close to Maun, which means airport transfers are included in the cost. Boteti stills enjoys a completely remote and wilderness location, despite its proximity to Maun. Upon arrival, guests are treated to an introductory mokoro experience and each day they have an option of doing a full day tour to a chosen safari destination in the area.

Types of day excursions in this sought-after area in Botswana, include:

  • Nxai Pan Full Day Activity
  • Makgadikgadi Full Day Activity
  • Moremi Full Day Activity
  • Full Day Mokoro in the Okavango Delta
