  • Everything worked perfectly! We all found our trekking experience to be the best part of our adventures in Morocco. We were particularly pleased with our guide, Hussain; he did a brilliant job. He is thoughtful, knowledgable, and sweet. He represents you well.

    MissingJacob Moffat reviewing Atlas Valleys & Villages Comfort Treks on 09 March 2017

  • Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
    Key highlights:
    - Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
    - The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
    - Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
    - Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
    - Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant

    If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.

    MissingMark Dilley reviewing Boutique Marrakech & Atlas Mountains on 07 June 2016

  • Truly another world. The sky was enormous and the summits snow covered. Blue irises, wild herbs and fruit trees flowered on the slopes. Even as I toiled up the dry river bed I gazed in admiration.

    Without exception, everyone was courteous and welcoming. Food was good ( and far too plentiful); accommodation clean. Above all-everything worked! A pick-up was promised for 9.00am. At 8.55 the doorbell rang. Impeccable.

    No praise is too high for the organisation and staff. I am definitely going back.

When to Go to Botswana

Botswana works best in the dry season from May - October when the wildlife concentrates around the water and there is less vegetation around, making for excellent game viewing. The wet season running from November to April has its own attractions with green season rates and newborn animals, but game viewing in Chobe and the Delta is certainly less prolific and some camps are closed. The rain itself doesn't tend to be such an impediment as it is mostly short and sharp afternoon showers. Conversely to the rest of Botswana, the Kalahari region comes alive during the wet season with wildlife concentrating around the lush grasses that have been fed by the rain.

Where to go on Safari in Botswana

If you need to keep costs down, then combining Chobe Waterfront with Victoria Falls and Cape Town can make for a fantastic trip. However, if your focus is on the safari, then it is really worth pushing further into the wilderness to include the Okavango Delta and Linyanti areas. Botswana's big draw has to be the magnificent Okavango Delta and it makes for a fabulous balance to combine a wet camp in the Delta with a land based camp in the exclusive Linyanti region. Yes, the costs do go up with the small aircraft flights and exclusive reserves, but we find the quality of safari well worth it.

How much does a safari in Botswana cost?

Costs can vary massively depending on family size, the age of children, time of year, length of stay and the quality of the camps, but with Botswana, one thing is always for sure, it won't be cheap. As a very approximate guide, starting budgets (inclusive of international flights) are around £3,000/$4,500 per person* and staying at the best camps and combining three locations, budgets can easily reach £10,000/$15,000 per person*. So a typical family of 2 could end up spending between £6,000/$9,000 - £20,000/$30,000 in total.

Whilst Botswana is expensive, remember that the cost of managing a vast reserve the size of a small country is shared over a very small number of guests each year and the level of service and guiding is second to none.

Combining Botswana Safari with Cape Town or the Beach

We often combine Botswana with Cape Town in South Africa, there are good flight connections and the contrast of Cosmopolitan City & Coast in Cape Town works well with Botswana's wilderness.

Combining a Botswana safari with some beach time can be a challenge. The best option is combining with Mauritius, but this will require an overnight in Johannesburg. Therefore, if you just looking for a good quality safari and relaxing beach experience, with the minimum of transport hassle, then we would rather recommend Tanzania, Kenya or even KwaZulu Natal in South Africa simply because the beach is so much easier to access from the safari location.
