Best of Botswana
Expedition in Botswana with you behind the wheel
The adventure starts right here. Once you are seated in the driver’s seat, we are ready to begin our expedition together.
You will experience a magnificent starry night sky, herds of elephants and lions roaring in the distance as we sit around the campfire enjoying a cup of coffee in the middle of Botswana.
“Best of Botswana” is a 15-day expedition that takes you through Botswana with a detour to the majestic Victoria Waterfall in Zimbabwe.
Your entire expedition is organized with an utmost respect for the animals and the land. We drive in specially designed 4-wheel drive vehicles through Botswana, experience the amazing wildlife and camp in tents on the roof of the car.
On this tour you will see part of the endless Kalahari Desert, the unique Okavango Delta, the world-renowned Chobe National Park and do not forget the 7th wonder of the world Mosi-oa-Tunya.. (The smoke that thunders) Victoria Falls
Highlights of the trip:
- Kubu Island and/or Makgadikgadi pans
Okavango Delta and Moremi
Khwai and Savuti
The Chobe River
Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)
15 days packed with adventure
As if that wasn’t enough, you also get the chance to slip down the Okavango Delta in a mokoro. It is a traditional canoe, made from a hollowed-out tree trunk used by the locals.
As you glide silently through the water, you may be lucky enough to spot a fish eagle and hear its distinctive screams as it hovers high above you in search of prey. You also get close to the hippo that cools in the river and the other animals that come to drink.
A unique sense of freedom
Because we are only a limited number of guests (max 10) on each individual expedition, your participation and involvment has a great impact on the kind of ekspedition this is going to be. You are shaping this ekspedition together with me and your fellow eksploreres along the way.
You will also face challenges such as flooded roads or elephant flocks blocking the road ahead of us. Challenges that you and the other participants have to find solutions to.Well… I might help too…
You will be getting a whole new idea of what you can accomplish. And that is an important part of the whole experience.You will experience a sense of freedom that is truly amazing.
This is how we camp on the trip
Much of the time we are in the middle of the bush, where we do not know what turns out a few miles ahead. This means that our senses are sharpened and you live intensely in the present.
The vast majority of nights we live in private camps with a minimum of facilities (shower and toilet), but it also happens that we camp right where we are at any given time.
We have that flexibility because we, like the snail, travel with our house on our backs and have tents that are raised on the roof of the cars.
The nights in the bush are indescribable when, after a good meal prepared over campfires, we are quietly accompanied by the roar of the lions in the distance and animals passing close by.
Monica Larsen about her experience
”I’ve been on ekspedition with Richi’s Africa and it was nothing short of amazing!
Cars, tents, lodges and the route in general have worked perfectly. It was a huge travel experience.“
A detour to Zimbabwe
In addition to experiencing the bush, you can look forward to seeing the stunning Victoria Falls, located in Zimbabwe. The deafening roar of the colossal waterfall will make your jaw drop with the admiration of nature’s beauty and strength.
Here you also have the opportunity to explore the area on your own, go river rafting or fly a helicopter ride to experience it all from a bird’s eye view.
Our overnight stay in Zimbabwe takes place in the village of Chisuma, a truly unique experience that you will not get with anyone else. We live as a part of the family and participate in daily life as much as we want.
Luxury on another level
Don’t expect luxury in the most ordinary sense of the word on this expedition. The “luxury” we experience is when we drive through nature like real adventurers, where we have to adapt to the challenges that nature throws at us. It is a luxury that does not have its equal.
Like when we have set up our camp in the beautiful and desolate nature of Kalahari, when we see the beautiful light at sunset play in the grass of the savannah and the sun disappears on the horizon. As we look up at the night sky with millions of stars, you will know what true luxury is.

I never take anyone on an expedition I haven’t talked to before. It is important so that we can get expectations and wishes aligned and you can get answers to your questions.

This is an expedition – not a package holiday
Most days consist of driving or at least being with our vehicle. The road network is, to put it mildly, not like in Europe, and with a maximum speed of 50 km per hour our journey is always dictated by conditions such as roads, majestic girafs and elephant heards.
And this is how it should be, as we are constantly surrounded by the magnificent wild nature, and true nature experiences are our constant companion.
Being close to and being a part of this amazing nature and rich wildlife is an unforgettable experience. You will have an overwhelming sense of freedom and of being alive like never before.
There is more. Much more, but it must be experienced. I hope you decide to let me show you the Africa that I love with all my soul. Show it to you… my way… in order for you to get the intense feeling that makes me go back again and again. If you do I know that you wil come home with a broken heart because a piece of it will always linger back in Africa. You will get an experience that you will not find on any other trip.
This is not a holiday…..This is an adventure…..
