Luxury Hotels & Safari Camps in Botswana

There is no need to compromise on luxury when deciding where to stay in the great wilderness that is Botswana; you may not find mega glamorous hotels, but many of the boutique camps and lodges ooze sophistication and style. Imagine a luxury safari camp with en suites and free standing bath tubs (perfect for relaxing in by candle light after a long day's safari, bliss). Alternatively and very popular in Bots, follow the seasonal migration with mobile camps, camping on the pans under the stars (tip: bring an eye mask for the moon-rays). Here are some of our suggestions of great places to stay:
