Best luxury safari lodges in Botswana

You can't really call yourself a safari enthusiast if you've never been to a Botswana lodge. There, we said it! As one of the world's most remote and untouched destinations, packed with wildlife, it's out of this world. There's so much to explore, from the water wonderland of the Okavango Delta to the Land of Gentle Giants in the Chobe National Park and the ghostly salt pans of Makgadikgadi Pans. 

Therefore, when choosing a place to stay, you need to choose carefully, as it can make or break your experience. Lucky for you, we make it our business to know precisely where our guests need to be when. Our Travel Experts have traversed these plains in search of the best Botswana safari lodges so that you can get the ultimate experience.

A Botswana lodge for every type of traveller

There's something magical about Botswana's landscapes and wildlife. From the winding waterways of the Okavango Delta to one of the world's largest collections of salt flats, the Makgadikgadi Pans, and the burnt orange dunes and rolling grasslands of The Kalahari Desert. Not to mention the bafflingly large elephant herds as far as the eye can see in Chobe National Park. And, of course, all the wildlife, birdlife, flora and fauna in between!
To get the best possible view of all of this, you need the best possible home base. Luckily, thanks to Botswana being such a popular safari destination, there are plenty to choose from! Whether you're looking for five-star luxury in a classic lodge or you're more adventurous and looking for a luxury canvas tented camp, we've got the place for you. -

Discover the breathtaking Okavango Delta from the deck of safari lodge

The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta globally, and the hundreds of canals that run through its dense reeds allow for mokoro (a dugout canoe) safaris, giving you a unique perspective of the wildlife and surroundings, in particular bird-watching. 

In the Moremi and Okavango Delta region, some lodges offer year-round water-based activities like boat safaris, whereas others offer seasonal water activities such as the mokoro safaris. But don't forget about all the many land-based activities on offer, such as game drives, bush walks, photographic safaris, and more.  

Sounds overwhelming? That's why booking with one of our Travel Experts is the way to go. We take your wish list, combine it with our first-hand experience, consider the specific season you'll be travelling in, and plan the ultimate itinerary for you. 

Here are just some of the top safari lodges in the Okavango Delta region to consider.

  • Jao Camp – One of the most remote (and luxurious) delta lodges of Botswana,
  • Linyanti Bush Camp – Only six intimate luxury tents in the famous Linyanti Swamps.
  • Little Machaba – Luxury camp in the world-renowned Khwai Concession.

Chobe’s charms: some of the most beautiful safari lodges in Botswana

The Chobe Region is best known for being the Land of the Gentle Giants due to the enormous elephant population. But there’s more to see than pachyderms, with unique fauna, flora, and extensive floodplains luring all of Botswana’s wildlife. 

When choosing accommodation in the Chobe Region, you can take your pick from luxury houseboats, lodges, or camps. 

Some of our favourite places to stay in Chobe include:

Mystical Makgadikgadi Pans lodges

When choosing a Makgadikgadi Pans accommodation for your Botswana holiday, there are many to choose from. As the largest collection of salt flats in the world, the glaringly white landscape dotted with wildlife is something to behold.

Here are some of the best camps and lodges to consider for your stay:

  • San Camp – Set on the glittering Makgadikgadi Pans
  • Leroo La Tau – Front-row view of the Boteti River
