Enjoy your Safari in Botswana in Colonial Style
Aaah! This is the Life - Sun-downers at Mombo Camp. Okavango

Evoke the spirit of the European explorers as you embark on a colonial style safari adventure through the rugged Botswana landscape.
; "All I wanted to do now was get back to Africa. We had not left yet, but when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already."
These are the words and the emotion that a colonial style safari conjures up in one's imagination. Ideas of decadence, exploration, romance, danger and adventure are the lures that tempt you, beguile you into wanting to travel to the unknown adventure of Africa.
Today a colonial style safari in Botswana is no less glamorous or adventure filled as visitors head out on the hunt for the next incredible sighting of animal, although nowadays the hunt is based around the perfect photograph rather than the trophy hunt.
Many safari lodges in Botswana have worked hard to encapsulate the magical essence of the colonial era, offering small tented camps with canvas test, antique artefacts and luxurious finishes. Day time excursions include game viewing game drives, cruises down the Chobe River, mokoro boat rides and much more while evenings are spent enjoying a delicious and decadent dinners under stars.
Picture the opulence of a previous time with Persian carpets on the wooden floors, cotton linen on the beds and the service from enthusiastic staff members combining with the beauty and tranquillity of the African bush, this is what awaits you when you embark on a colonial style safari.
