Our Safaris


The core activity of any African safari is the game drive, best undertaken in an open-sided 4WD vehicle. At BotswanaAway we always try to put together itineraries that have the scope to do more than this. Thus in certain locations you may also be able to undertake walking safaris and night drives, with the further possibility of bush camping, boat trips and the like.

We have tried to group the various activities that can be undertaken during a safari holiday into different sections, as shown below. To find out more information you can either link on from these illustrated panels or simply choose the activity that interests you from the drop-down menu above.

At BotswanaAway we will design a safari for you that includes as many of these activities as are of interest to you, either focusing on just one geographical area, or taking in a wide spread of different habitats right across the country. Whether you are a first time safari visitor, a dedicated bird watcher, or someone with a desire to just soak up the sun on a tropical beach, we can cater for your exact requirements.

For more specific assistance regarding any of these activities please call us on 0121 472 1541, or email us using the contact form in the right hand column of this page.


Safari Activities

Most itineraries will revolve around the activities listed here, but with two activities per day at most lodges, you will get plenty of time to sample everything Botswana has to offer.

Game Viewing

The classic safari anywhere will almost certainly be based around the game-drive - travelling through the bush by 4WD, designed to tackle any terrain and get you to the best viewing location.

Activity-based Safaris

Although much of the basic safari activity consists of sitting still in a game viewing vehicle, many people will enjoy exercising themselves rather more than this.

We can arrange dedicated tours for those interested in pursuing their hobbies while on safari, including birdwatching, photography and horseback safaris.


Most people will want to combine game viewing, or bird watching, with photography. In a few cases we can arrange specialist tours, and will always be on hand to offer you our own expertise.
