Departure:

The Botswana Safari Escape departs from Maun. Whilst it is our every intention to adhere to the above itinerary, there may on occasion be a necessity to make alterations in order to make the tour more enjoyable or practical.  Therefore please treat the itinerary as a guide only.

Where included, most breakfasts and dinners will be enjoyed in the restaurants of the various accommodation establishments. Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in advance.


Travelling Times  and Distances:

All travelling times are affected by road conditions, border crossings, detours and weather conditions, therefore on certain days travelling times may be longer than anticipated. Please keep in mind that the time it takes to travel 100 km in your home country is not equivalent to the time it takes to travel 100 km on African roads, therefore we encourage you to sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery Africa has to offer.   Where possible additional stops will be made to ensure your travelling comfort at all times.
