Tuskers offers sundowners, bush dinners and more in the Kalahari acacia bushveld that flourishes in parts of the concession.


Tuskers offers highly sought after game drives in the Kalahari acacia bushveld that flourishes in parts of the concession. Explore the bush and encounter wild animals, recognise their tracks and signs, and discover smaller details of the bush. 

Traditional game drives, as well as night drives, offer up close game viewing experiences with the population of wildlife that moves freely between the concession and the bordering Moremi Game Reserve.

Tuskers safari experience includes:

  • Morning and afternoon game drives, as well as night drives in the concession
  • Birdwatching from the camp
  • Sundowners at various waterholes and pans in the concession
  • The option of having a bush dinner set-up under the trees
  • Walk with the San Bushman Experience : This needs to be arranged prior to arrival, and takes the place of the morning game drive. The walk is aimed at introducing guests to the hunter/gatherer lifestyle of the ancients.

When to Go

Botswana is a year-round destination and ‘when to go’ depends on preference regarding game viewing, landscape and weather. 

In September and October, temperatures can soar to the early-40°Cs and it is the driest period, with game keeping close to the remaining water. The rain begins in summer, and runs from November to April and transforms Botswana into a prime birding destination.

For unforgettable big game viewing, the winter months (June, July, August) are the best as the bush is thinner, making visibility better, and water is scarcer, meaning the permanent waterholes and lagoons are alive with wildlife.

What to Pack

The climate in Botswana brings very hot, dry periods and also very wet seasons. Winter (June, July, August) packs cold nights and mild, dry days. Depending on what time of year you travel, you will need certain essentials.

  • Throughout the year, we recommend packing lightweight, neutral-coloured clothing with short sleeves
  • Bring sun protection in the form of sunblock, sun hats, and glasses.
  • Scarfs, jackets and gloves are needed for early mornings on the boat, especially in winter.
  • Comfortable walking shoes are essential, as is sun protection in the form of hats, sunglasses and sun block.

Bring along cameras, binoculars and recording gadgets to keep a record of the many wildlife sightings.

What to Expect

The classic ambience of this bush camp is a traditional ‘under canvas’ experience and is ecologically respectful. The camp lacks frills and luxuries, and has an emphasis on the closeness to nature, which encapsulates the underlying appeal.

Guests will feel blissfully lost in Botswana’s great wilderness. Expect to be transported to an era of classic safari explorations in the wild wonderland of Botswana, where canvas tents and crackling campfires are key.

The vast area in which Tuskers in located is largely home to elephant, which thrive in the mopane woodland, so always have your eyes open for wandering visitors.
