Romantic landscapes, incredible game-viewing and luxurious camps
cazenove+loyd has its roots in Botswana, as it was here where Susie Cazenove and Henrietta Loyd started working together over 30 years ago. The mind-expanding experiences, in-depth knowledge and life-long friends they gained there are the foundations of the company and allow us to continue designing individual, extraordinary holidays all these years later.
Botswana combines stunning landscapes and incredible game viewing with some of the most luxurious camps in southern Africa. From the unremitting salt pans of the Makgadikgadi to the intricate waterways of the Okavango Delta, it has an amazing diversity of habitat and wildlife species. The Linyanti region is home to huge herds of elephant that roam across wide grassy plains which roll all the way into Namibia, while the seemingly endless Kalahari Desert offers a truly otherworldly experience.
As safaris in Botswana are undeniably expensive, each day should feel spectacular. Your Destination Expert will meticulously plan every element of your safari according to your wants and needs, adding in those special experiences that complete a trip.

Area in focus
Our favourite lodges in the Okavango Delta lie many miles from the nearest human habitation and many are accessible only by light aircraft. Thanks to this remoteness, it remains one of the most unspoilt and exclusive safari experiences to be found anywhere in Africa.
Getting it Right Every Time
Creating an itinerary
We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.
When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.
If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.
Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.
We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.
We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.
We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.
Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.
We have put the relevant measures in place so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination.
The price of our service is dependent on the intricacies of the itinerary. No two trips are the same. Our philosophy is to make every detail tailored just to you.
