Botswana is hoping for international guests for the high season from May/June
This popular safari destination ranks 103rd on the infection rate comparison table across all countries. International airports including Livingstone, Maun and Kasane have been open for months and many lodges here too are keeping their heads above water with local guests or those travelling from South Africa.
There are highly recommended safari companies like Desert & Delta, which already have a ”flying nurs” service on offer, which flies from camp to camp and can even offer PCR tests in the middle of the Okavango Delta (the cost is around USD 350.00 per person)! In this way the journey for international visitors is made much easier and saves the guests a two day wait in Maun for the test results. Now that is service!
One of our favourite and most authentic lodge operators, Machaba Safaris will open a new eco camp in 2022 in a top location in the Okavango Delta. Kiri Camp with a total of 10 luxury tents. will like other products in the portfolio offer an ideal choice for families. Both water and land activities will be offered in a private concession – also a perfect if guests only have time for one camp in the Delta. The costs start from USD 1,300.00 per person per night, everything included!
