One of Botswana’s leading local operators, Desert & Delta Safaris was established in 1982 and now boasts a portfolio of 8 lodges and offers one of the most established safari circuits in Botswana. The lodges are set in prime locations in the Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park and the banks of the Boteti River on the boundary of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The company’s characteristic warm and professional service with excellent guiding and superb value for money has ensured the Desert & Delta Safari circuit remains one of the most popular in Botswana.
The collection brings together some of Botswana’s most historic lodges including the iconic Chobe Game Lodge, Savute Safari Lodge, Camp Moremi, Camp Xakanaxa, Camp Okavango, Xugana Island Lodge, Chobe Savannah Lodge and Leroo La Tau. All lodges are managed by local citizens.
These lodges, with four in the unique Okavango Delta, allow guests to explore northern Botswana’s unsurpassed safari destinations. Desert & Delta Safaris’ emphasis on great game viewing and quality guiding allows guests not only to understand the wildlife of this region but also the culture of the people, their pride in their past and their aspirations for the future.
The national parks and game reserves in which Desert & Delta Safaris operate are some of the foremost safari destinations in Botswana, proclaimed at independence because of their fine game viewing and breathtaking scenery. It is with great pride that Desert & Delta Safaris operate in these locations and the company continually works to repay the trust placed in them to preserve such unique areas.
