Our favourite places to stay:

Sable Alley -
Sable Alley is a complete rebuild of a favourite old bush camp. Overlooking a lagoon that’s connected to the Khwai and Sable Alley rivers, just a stone’s throw from the world-famous Moremi Game Reserve, this enviable location means the game literally comes to us.

Little Mombo Camp -
the ultimate Botswana safari destination for small groups, has acquired a reputation as a bush hideaway for safari cognoscenti

King’s Pool - Nine luxuriously-appointed guest rooms provide an indulgent sanctuary between game drives and other activities, including sumptuous dinners on the camp’s colonial-style barge

Little Vumbura -
This small, intimate camp embodies the best of the Okavango Delta, nestled beneath the trees of an ancient island forest
