People you will meet on safari in Botswana

 
Here’s something you might not expect. The people looking after you on safari might create some of your happiest safari memories. You’ll remember laughter and those after dinner stories and jokes around the campfire. During a three-night stay in a luxury camp, you’ll get to make friends with your guide, the chef, the vegetable gardener and the other people who love their work.

In Botswana, guides and trackers work as a team. The system makes a lot of sense. The tracker devotes his skills and amazing eyesight to seeking out animals, while the guide communicates with you. You quickly become part of the team, enjoying together the surprises and moments of beauty on safari. Sometimes you’ll all be searching the grasses for a cheetah or leopard that they are sure is close by.

Many Botswanans have a gentle, quietly humourous nature and they love children. To work in a top quality safari lodge is a prized ambition and the best lodges have a family atmosphere. The pace of life is relaxed and the gardeners, chefs and maintenance people are always happy to chat and show you behind the scenes. You may find that the gardener knows as much about English football as you and is an avid supporter of a Premier League club!

If you have time, include a Kalahari or Makgadikgadi lodge in your safari. The semi-desert areas are fascinating and have their own special wildlife and ecology. San Bushmen have perfected the art of desert survival and to take a walk with a bushman is enthralling. The bush provides medicines, weapons, water, tools and even a toothbrush. The desert is full of secrets.

Simply by travelling to these exclusive camps, you are helping conservation. Part of the cost of your stay goes to managing and conserving the private reserve and deterring poachers. Many small lodges work closely with local tribal communities, who learn to see wildlife as a resource, rather than a threat. If your family is interested in conservation, let us know and we’ll arrange opportunities to see this work in action and perhaps to meet researchers.
