Africa + Indian Ocean

    Botswana Elephant

    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.

    In all of the regions in which we work throughout the world, securing the most inspiring guides is our highest priority. Below we have highlighted some of our favourites, who we have known for years and who embody the qualities we look for when choosing a guide for our clients.
    Photographer Nick Horowitz recently joined Henrietta Loyd on her return to Botswana. Together with their guides John Barclay and James Stenner they journeyed through the Okavango Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve, setting up camp in remote locations each night.
    When most think of safaris, they think game-drives. But in addition to those thrilling drives, there are so many other incredible ways to experience Africa. Here are just a handful of the awe-inspiring experiences we can arrange in Africa.
    Safari connects you to nature in such an instinctive way, as you are exploring wilderness areas that are untouched by man. In the bush, animals seem surprised to see you and life seems to work as it should: without human interference.
