Tailor Made Self-Drive Safaris In Botswana and beyond…
Welcome to Drive Botswana. There are few holiday experiences that are more fulfilling than a successful safari, and good organization and preparation are the keys to making a safari a success.

You tell us what you want to see, where you want to go, and for how long and we will put together a personal itinerary for you, depending on your level of experience.
