Botswana’s 2 main parks, Chobe National Park and Moremi Game Reserve as well as the Khwai Community area offer an abundance of large game. Lion, leopard, elephant, African wild dog (painted dog), buffalo and giraffe roam alongside a plethora of antelope, crocodiles and hippo.
In drier areas such as the Central Kalahari, Nxai Pan and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans there is the chance to see desert adapted animals with a greater chance of viewing cheetah, black-maned lions, migrating wildebeest and zebra at certain times of year, oryx, springbok and more!
Botswana has over 550 species and many beautiful ones making it a superb birding destination. Varied habitats from desert to delta, forest to scuba and savannah ensure variety.
From November to April the birding is at it’s finest with high numbers of migratory birds in the area.
Our game drives are carefully planned to take place when you are most likely to see wildlife. This means very early morning, or late afternoon/ evening game drives on most days of a safari. This maximises our chances to see the animals at their most active, especially predators.
Ulinda’s safari vehicles are custom designed to ensure the best wildlife viewing and comfort, keeping in mind photographers especially. They can close up to keep out rain, wind, cold and dust, keeping equipment safe, or open large sliding windows and pop open the roof for 360 degree views.
Life in Camp
We operate a mobile safari camp. This offers the advantage that we can go to the wildest and most remote areas, and set up a comfortable base camp from which to explore our surrounds.
We offer classic tents and luxury tents, in both options Inside the tents, we provide beds with proper mattresses and bed-linen, plus a small table with a lantern. Out in front of the tent, you have a basin for washing your hands that is filled with clean water every morning and evening. Behind the tents is an en-suite long-drop toilet and a bucket shower that is filled with hot water.
We also have a mess tent where we take delicious meals prepared fresh by our camp staff and a fire made nightly around which we sit and enjoy each others company, the wild around us and the stars above.
