Botswana - Small Group Safaris
If you like the idea of visiting Botswana as part of a small group, then we’ve got some great suggestions for you.
These safaris are run by operators we’ve known for many years and who can be relied upon to deliver a first class experience.
Although we have featured them here as scheduled group safaris, you can book any of these itineraries as a private safari for you and your family or friends.
Why not get in touch to discuss your ideas with us, there’s nothing we enjoy more than talking about Africa.
Then we can get to work on designing a very special safari just for you.
Okavango and Kalahari
From Desert to Delta – a fully serviced mobile safari
For us to recommend a scheduled small group safari it needs to be outstanding, and this really is.
A 10 day mobile safari that takes you beyond the more commonly visited areas of Botswana to discover the amazing diversity of Botswana’s wild places.
Although predominantly a mobile tented safari, the itinerary includes 2 nights in lodges.

We offer 2 different small group photographic safaris, both follow the same itinerary.
Photographic Workshops with award winning Botswana photographer James Gifford
The unique aspect of having a professional photographer with many years of experience photographing Botswana, along with a guide who understands the importance of lighting and being in the right position is what sets this trip apart from many others. Whether you are a keen beginner with their first DSLR or an experienced photographer looking to take your images to the next stage, you need not worry about the workshop being pitched at the wrong level. All seats in the vehicle are window seats, but we will tend to switch seats regularly to allow everyone to take advantage of different perspectives.
These safaris focus on teaching guests how to get the most out of their camera in order to get the right shot.
Shutter Safari – Photographic Safari with specialist guide
The perfect safari for keen amateur photographers who want to do a safari with like-minded photographers. These safaris are led by one of our top photographic guides, who himself is a passionate photographer. The itinerary ensures that you get the most out of each of the areas visited on this safari.
