Wilderness Safaris
Premier Botswana

Wilderness Safaris is one of the most respected operators in Botswana. Their camps are in private concessions, so visitors can avoid crowds and enjoy a truly personal wilderness experience. Game drives are conducted in open 4WD vehicles with night drives are available at some camps. At many of the camps you may also enjoy activities by boat, or mokoro (dugout canoe), as well as birding and fishing. Each tented room has private ensuite facilities, indoor and outdoor showers, and all lodges have plunge pools. Whilst many camps welcome children, some also specifically offer family-friendly accommodation with adjoining tented suites/rooms with a shared bathroom.

Wilderness Safaris’ Premier Camps offer some of the highest quality accommodation in Botswana. All provide signature warm Wilderness hospitality and feature outstanding design and decor, with luxuries such as outdoor “salas”, perfect for afternoon siestas. One of the most famous is Mombo Camp, situated in a secluded area of the predator-rich Moremi Game Reserve. Lesser known but no less stunning are Jao Camp and Vumbura Plains Camp.
