In the second in our series of African Safari articles articles we look at a range of stylish options for luxury safari tents in Botswana, ideal places to see the huge variety of wild animals incuding lions in Africa.
Zarafa Camp – Okavango
This exclusive luxury tented camp in the Okavango offers just four vast suites with views of the lagoon beyond. The suites come complete with copper roll top baths and huge sitting rooms designed to put the comfort back in comfortable! The beds are four posters, naturally, and the fact the camp has only four suites make it an unbelievably exclusive wildlife experience. The reserve also offers a vast area of land which is virtually unexplored.
San Camp – Makgadikgadi Pans
San Camp is one of the best camps in Africa. It is only open from April to October and offers cool white Moroccan style tents set into remote doum palms on the vast Makgadikgadi Pans. The furnishings are antique and grand and your tent is so far from your neighbours that you feel as if you have your own little piece of Africa. The area itself is also fascinating as the birthplace of early man, and a host of different species you won't see in the Okavango.
Stanley's Camp – Okavango
This camp is a little more simple but set in such a wild and beautiful location that it deserves a mention. This is a true tented camp with all the comforts including a hammock on your verandah and a large comfy bed.
Jack's Camp – Makgadikgadi Pans
This luxury tented camp is the original sister camp to San Camp and is world famous for being one of the most extraordinary places to stay in the world. The camp is fraught with history of the Bousfield family and has a wonderful museum, which shows artefacts from early explorations of Botswana, and discoveries of stone age tools and bones. The camp tents themselves are opulent, with lavish red interiors and opulent dÃ©cor.
