Top 5 Luxury Botswana Safari Lodges

Botswana safaris are mostly made up of what people refer to as tented camps, although many of those are actually very permanent in style and can be extremely luxurious, even more so than the lodges which often sit at the mid range level and can be quite disappointing. There is nothing more apt when on a luxury safari in Botswana than being under canvas, however some of the luxury lodges in Botswana are extraordinary in their style, location and glamour and this is what we’d like to highlight today. Here are Botswana’s top five luxury safari lodges:

1 Vumbura Plains


 Vumbura Plains just has to go in spot 1, the suites are absolutely vast and very modern in style. Your private plunge pool overlooks the Delta which stretches beneath you and is often populated by abundant wildlife. Everything here is opulent but exceptionally comfortable so you always feel relaxed.

2 King’s Pool

3 Chobe Chilwero


Chobe Chilwero is beautifully quirky and very unique – the design is creative and inviting and omits a sense of happiness from the moment you arrive. Your spirits will be lifted and you will be on a constant high at this luxurious safari lodge set in bull elephant country.

4 Baines’ Camp
