Essential Items to Pack for a Botswana Safari

Botswana is a topographical treasure chest – its biodiverse landscape an invitation to the intrepid explorer. From the encrusted Magkadigadi salt pans to the enriched channels of the Okavango Delta, our safari specialist Rachel Marshall has created a holistic and interactive itinerary that evokes the senses. You can view our Botswana Sensations safari here.

In order to fully embrace such adventures, one needs to be prepared. Our specialists and guides have put together a safari essentials list, one that will compliment the journey – in times of adventure as well as relaxation.
