Bow hunting: Your dream has always been to go to Africa on a bow hunt.  The staff here is dedicated bow hunters!   They offer walk and stalk bow hunting as well as strategically placed blinds for bow hunters all over the property. Bow hunting is very successful with this outfitter and growing in popularity. We recommend that all bow hunters arrive well prepared, with accessories and spares that they may need, as Botswana does not offer much in regards to bow hunting supplies

The bow blinds look like large termite mounds. If you have never been to Africa, the termite mounds are something to behold. These blinds are big enough for three people and dug into the ground about 3 feet with a bench to sit on.

Rifle hunting:  Enjoy a safari company that is committed to ethical sustainable hunting and ensuring all guests have a successful safari.

As traveling with a gun can sometimes be a bit tedious depending on where you are traveling from or to on your trip the lodge offers all clients the option of using their rifles on their safari. (Please contact us for a list of rifles.) They charge per round of ammunition used.

Season:
The best months are April through September.

Fishing

This is a fantastic trip to combine with Tiger fishing in the Okavango Delta area!  Prime time for fishing there is July to October!  We will take care of all the details for this amazing adventure.

Travelex Insurance       Ripcord Insurance

While we do everything in our power to protect our clients from travel problems, we cannot prevent illness, natural disasters, wars, deaths, lodge closings and more; we live in uncertain times!  The only way to protect yourself and your investment is through travel insurance. Travel insurance can provide medical coverage, cancellation due to natural disaster, illness, death in the family, lodge closings and other unknowns; in this day and time, anything is possible.  Lodges count on you to protect your investment as they cannot refund your payments due to the nature of the product they offer.

Finally, travel insurance is time-sensitive and must be purchased within a certain number of days of your deposit to cover preexisting conditions, lodge closings and other various issues.  It is still available later but the benefits may be more limited.

Both companies offer evacuation insurance in addition to their travel insurance but Ripcord has more thorough coverage in this area.

The Ripcord membership and travel Insurance provides the highest levels of medical, security, evacuation and rescue services in the industry combined with travel insurance:

  • Remote rescue services from point of injury or illness
  • Medical evacuations to the member’s home hospital of choice
  • The best evacuation and rescue triggers that include rescues for medical conditions that will result in permanent injury in addition to just requiring hospitalization
  • Security extraction services for geopolitical events and natural disasters
  • Involuntary detention resolution services for members who are held against their will
  • Consulting services from special operations veterans, paramedics, nurses, and physicians
  • Travel insurance
