For over 30 years, Frontiers has worked closely with our good friends at Wilderness Safaris to create life-changing journeys in Africa!
Our friends at Wilderness Safaris own and operate 21 exclusive safari lodges in Botswana, and they alone have conserved over 1.5 million acres of land! Along with employing over 1,110 people in Botswana and protecting 20 vulnerable and endangered species, they also take pride in uplifting 2,000 children through their eco-clubs and scholarships with Children in the Wilderness.
Botswana is defined by the undulating grasslands and river valleys of the Kalahari Desert; the vast inland river delta known as the Okavango Delta; and the diverse ecosystems of the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve. Whether you are a first-time visitor or a veteran Africa traveler, Botswana offers an authentic exclusive safari experience.
Known as the world’s largest inland waterway and proclaimed UNESCO’s 1,000th World Heritage Site, the Okavango Delta is comprised of over 150,000 islands (most starting as termite mounds). It fluctuates in size between 2,300 – 3,100 miles during normal years, and 5,800 miles during wetter years – thus minimizing human incursion while providing sustenance and sanctuary to one of Africa’s most spectacular concentrations of wildlife.
Occupying a significant portion of central Botswana, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve offers a fascinating contrast to the rest of the country. A vast expanse of scrub-covered fossil dunes interspersed with ancient river valleys and acacia savannah, the Kalahari is home to a great many plants and animals. During the rainy season, the Kalahari comes into its own, with boundless open plains of grass attracting large herds of oryx and springbok, which in turn are followed by predators such as lion and cheetah.
The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, including Chobe National Park, is home to an astonishing diversity and density of game, including the largest free-roaming elephant herds on the planet, which come here to slake their thirst. Integral to this paradise is the Zibadianja Lagoon, a place where the waters teem with hippo, and whose outlet feeds the Savute Channel – a sliver of life-giving water.
A Few Frontiers' Favorite Camps Not to Miss
Located in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Mombo boasts vast plains game and predators and is considered to be some of the best game viewing in Africa. Recently rebuilt in 2018, Mombo focuses on the traditions and history of the camp as well as one of Wilderness Safari’s great conservations successes—the reintroduction of black and white rhino into Bostwana. Mombo is comprised of eight spacious tents with views of the floodplain which include your own private plunge pool. A great option for families, we encourage you to visit and learn more about why the Okavango Delta is known as the “place of plenty.” This flagship camp has garnered numerous awards and accolades from various publications, including Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure, in recognition of its continued commitment to conservation and sustainability, without sacrificing luxury in any way.
Kalahari Plains Camp
Tucked away in a remote part of the diverse and productive Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Wilderness' Kalahari Plains Camp offers fantastic game viewing opportunities, particularly in the summer months. Located in the Kalahari Desert in central Botswana, this is the largest conservation area in the country and one of the largest in the world. It is renowned for its legendary Kalahari black-maned lion and superb cheetah viewing. Kalahari Plains offers eight en suite canvas tents with a sleep-out platform above each, perfect for enjoying moonlit or starry nights. This property runs entirely by solar power, and the insulated canvas walls and roofs help keep the temperature inside the units comfortable. A great option for families or couples, Kalahari Plains also offers immersive cultural experiences and a star bed sleep out.
Savuti Camp is ideally situated in the private Linyanti Concession along the Savute Channel. Known for being a sporadic and unusual watercourse, the channel water either flows strongly attracting wildlife or recedes and leaves behind a rich grassland as part of the natural cycle. Regardless of which occurs, wildlife thrives and exploring the length of the Channel and its associated woodlands is not to be missed. Savuti offers seven intimate en suite accommodations in large, raised tents. Savuti also offers a star bed sleep out, boating, guided walks, pool, and fire pit along with stunning views of the Channel. Perfect for couples or families, Savuti Camp offers a unique experience for all types of travelers.
