How Much Does a Botswana Safari Cost?

How Much Does a Botswana Safari Cost?

Botswana is an incredibly unique and popular wildlife safari destination in Africa. It offers tours that cover a range of budgets, with the most coveted being mid-range to luxury safari experiences, based both on water and land. Botswana operates on a low-volume, high-value pricing model. Due to this approach and the restricted amount of visitors and concessions fees that lodges are required to pay to operate in private reserves, Botswana is one of Africa’s more expensive safari destinations. The costs do go towards an unbelievable safari experience! 

Below is a rough guide for Botswana safari pricing, please contact one of our Africa Travel Specialists for exact pricing and special deals that may apply. 

BOTSWANA’S HIGH SEASON (JULY, AUG, SEP, OCT) PRICES:

The high season is Botswana’s most popular safari period when the wildlife viewing is best and the reserves and lodges will be at their busiest.

Entry-level camps in Botswana will cost from around US$500 to US$800 per person sharing per night during the high season.

The more luxurious camps cost from around US$800 per person sharing per night and upwards ( some top-end lodges can be over over US$2000 per person sharing per night!!)

BOTSWANA’S MID TO LOW SEASON (APR, MAY, JUNE, NOV) PRICES:
