The Experience

Situated on the banks of the Boteti River, a tributary originating in the core of the Okavango Delta, lies the Boteti Tented Safari Lodge. This important river maintains its flow throughout the dry season when most other river systems are dry. Continuing its meandering course-way and feeding life to the Mkagadigadi salt pans and Kalahari dessert, resulting in spectacular game concentration along its way. The remote location is situated away from all man made distractions allowing one to truly submerge themselves into the splendor of pristine and untouched natural surroundings. Through careful design, well planned safaris and highly skilled and passionate guides our aim is to have all guests staying with us, capture and immerse oneself in unravelled wildlife encounters, culture and traditions of Botswanas splendor!
