14-day Botswana Adventure

kiboko-camping.jpgGuests are invited to sit back, relax and take in the amazing scenery of Botswana on this fully-serviced camping safari.  We take care of ALL your chores! Unlike the majority of overland companies that make guests work for their supper (cooking, cleaning, setting up camp), our fully serviced camping safaris are exactly that: fully serviced. You won't have to lift a finger as we prepare your meals, secure your tent and make sure we don't leave a mess.
