Botswana lodge-to-lodge fly-in safaris

Fly-in safaris are by far the most popular option for people wanting to come and explore the wilds of Botswana. A flock of light planes service a network of small airports and tiny grass airstrips throughout the country. These planes might be 5-seater Cessnas up to 12-seater Caravans, but they are basically acting as rather adventurous ‘buses’ connecting all of Botswana’s remote camps and lodges. Botswana is a vast country with a very limited road network, so flights are the most realistic way to get around, and it works well.

Choice of camps

Okuti-campAll the lodges and camps are at least within striking distance of an airstrip (anything from 5 minutes to an hour or so’s drive), and this means that you can literally choose any combination of lodges and camps throughout the country, as long as they have availability. This is the beauty of tailor making a fly-in safari – you can do what you want. When most people come to Botswana they like to get a combination of water and land-based activities in the Delta, and then see something of the other highlights such as Chobe or the Linyanti, and perhaps the pans and/or the Kalahari. At each camp you will enjoy shared game activities with other guests at the camp, lead by guides from the lodge. If you prefer to have your own personal guide accompany you throughout your safari, this is possible though it’s a very expensive option.
