Great trip experiencing what Africa really has to offer! Gecko's hosts ensured we were well accommodated, safe and enjoying every moment of our trip with lots of laughter! Local guides were very information providing every opportunity to see the local wildlife.

The whole trip was an unbelievable experience. We could have not had a better time. Our guide, Justin, cook, Irvine and driver, collen were the best team we have ever come across. The were compassionate and funny. We have never had so much fun in our life and laughed so much. It is the best trip we have ever done. We are now looking at doing another trip in this wonderful, friendly and amazing country.

Botswana is pretty cool, for one, there aremore elephants than humans*. There’s also heaps of desert (70% of the country is desert). But it’s not just a country filled with deserts and elephants, there’s other rad stuff too.
With Geckos, you’ll go for a jaunt in dugout canoes around the Okavango Delta. You’ll see plenty of the good animal folk having a drink and hang you’ll get to hang with wallowing hippos. You’ll also camp in the wilderness and fall asleep to lion roars (which obviously makes for the best brag story ever). It doesn’t get much more Africa than Botswana.
*Probably not actually more elephants than humans, but Botswana DOES have the highest elephant population in the world, so probably pretty close.
Spot lions stalking wildebeest through the Serengeti or climb the snow-capped summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania; watch wildlife from a dugout canoe drifting through the Okavango Delta in Botswana; feel the power of the massive Victoria Falls; dive the coral coast and explore the colonial past of Zanzibar; stroll the sea lion-strewn Skeleton Coast and sandboard the great dunes of Namibia; snorkel and bask by the idyllic Lake Malawi; meet Masai warriors and spot big game on safari in Kenya, trek through lush forests and sit amongst wild gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda, and sip top-notch wine while watching world cup soccer in South Africa; from beautiful sunrise to epic sunset, Africa will captivate your senses and inspire your soul.View all Africa trips
