A Botswana group safari may be the best way to celebrate a small or big family occasion, a birthday or even a group of friends. Travel to Botswana and enjoy a fantastic wildlife safari.
Tailormade Africa does not generally get involved with large, organised groups which tend to follow a set departure and itinerary. That said we very much encourage family parties or indeed intimate groups of friends to embark upon tailor-made Botswana group safaris put together by us with our care and precision.
If the family group is big enough it may be that you will be able to have your own vehicle while out on game drives with your own personal and private guide. Often this scenario can end up being the most cost effective as you will be splitting the fees of a private guide and vehicle between a fairly large number of you. If you are a particularly large, private group you may be able to book the whole lodge or camp, some of them only have 4 or 5 rooms; imagine the privacy and exclusivity you will then experience? Here is more info on group safaris in Africa.
The smaller more intimate camps generally work best in this scenario, so certainly matching your party size to as close to the maximum number of rooms at a camp is always best. There are some safari camps and lodges in Botswana that excel at catering for group or private party clients and sadly others that are ill prepared, having knowledge of the very best camps across all budget ranges helps us to correctly match your party to the right camp. Find out more on Botswana safaris in general.
The best thing to do at this point is to get in touch with us, preferably by phone, to allow us to get to know you a little and advise on the kind of group or private party safari that would give you all your trip of a lifetime experience.
Botswana Group Safari FAQs
What exactly is a Botswana group safari?
We do not do stock standard group tours to Botswana. All our itineraries are tailor made to the groups exact travel needs and personalities.
A group safari to Botswana could be anything from a small family to a larger organisation or even just a few friends wanting to celebrate a life event or simply have a great vacation in Africa together. Botswana is very well suited to group safaris.
The key to a well organised group safari is to start planning early. Why you may ask? Well, you would want the group to be together throughout the safari adventure and this would mean coordinating camps & lodges, travel and activities to accommodate the group at all times. Added to this there may be certain requirements the group would have and it would be a great disappointment if these could not be met as there simply just isn't enough time or space available.
When is the best time to go on a Botswana group safari?
The best time to go on a Botswana group safari would be the drier months from May to September with the best ones being, June to August. With the vegetation being less lush and dense wildlife sightings are more prolific. The days are also nice and sunny and warm with temperatures around 26ºC / 79ºF on average during the day, but it gets chilly at night. This is also the time when mosquitos are less and the risk of malaria is at it's lowest.
If, however, you are a group of birding enthusiasts you may want to consider the wet summer months from November to March when the Okavango Delta is teeming with birdlife as the migratory birds return from their time in Europe and further afield.
