Our background
Letaka Safaris is a citizen-owned safari company that has been operating in Botswana since October 2000. The founding directors, known locally as the Letaka Brothers, have over 38 years of combined guiding experience and have been guiding full-time in Botswana since the mid-90’s. Originally all our safaris were owner-guided but the company has now grown to employ a further 5 of Botswana’s most highly experienced mobile safari guides.

The focus of our company has always been on the quality of our guides, hence our close association with Okavango Guiding School, a training facility which we created to elevate the standard of guiding in Botswana. Many of Botswana’s top safari guides pass through Okavango Guiding School’s doors at one time or another and we are proud to continue this initiative to create a guiding fraternity that will stand head and shoulders above other African destinations.

What we do
Letaka Safaris offers scheduled safari departures as well as private and tailor-made safaris. The majority of the safaris are semi-luxury mobile safaris meaning that there is a team that sets up camp ahead of time and most safaris would include at least 3 locations. We do also provide privately guided lodge safaris where we drive groups from one luxury camp to another and in so doing having one guide through out the stay in the various lodges.

Apart from the conventional wildlife viewing safaris Letaka Safaris offers specialized birding safaris. The company is recognized as “The” birding safari company and is the first company in Botswana to offer scheduled departures specifically for birders.

Who looks after you
As well as our professional guides, we have a back up team consisting of a chef and camphands who are there to make the safari even more enjoyable.  The camp staff setup and break down camp as required as well as carrying our various daily camp chores ensuring our guests enjoy total relaxation on safari.

Accommodation
Our accommodation is in 3m² Wilderness tents fitted with high camp beds made up with mattresses, sheets, duvets and pillows.  The tents have en-suite long drop toilets and bucket showers.  For families travelling with younger children on private trips, Letaka Safaris have designed a family tent, ensuring the children’s safety and their parent’s peace of mind.  The family tent is a two bedroom unit with adjoining bathroom.

Vehicles
Letaka Safaris vehicles are spacious and comfortable taking a maximum of 9 guests (although our scheduled departures run with a maximum of 6 or 7 guests depending on the itinerary) as well as a fridge keeping those all important sundowner drinks cold.  All our vehicles are fitted with inverters and strip plugs to allow guests to charge batteries whilst on safari.
