The following 4 days have a flexible and adaptable itinerary, accounting for the season the trip is being held and the probability of observing wildlife.

Breakfast and departure to Maun, so the guide can purchase the necessary supplies for the following days, which will be spent on safaris and observing the wildlife in reserves and national parks (Moremi, Savuti, …).

Available to us, there will be an equipped all-terrain vehicle that will allow us to be in close proximity to the animals, while maintaining our safety.

An example of our itinerary could be: Moremi and first campsite in the known region of 3rd Bridge, an area inhabited by hyenas, hippos and lions; the following day, continuing north via Xakanaxa to a campsite near the northern area of the Moremi National Park, equally favorable to the observance of wildlife.

Continuing to Savuti, through a region of swamps and savannah, which are favorable to the African-elephant and hyenas. The landscape and vegetation are in constant change, from wide and open plainfields with palm trees and swamps, to dense forests of acacia trees.

If I sign up alone, do I have to pay an individual supplement?

Not necessarily. If you do not wish to stay alone in the accommodations, you can share them with another participant. Not necessarily. Papa-Léguas may group travelers who sign up individually for the same trip in pairs, by sex and chronological order of registration, and if the number of participants is odd, the traveler who stays alone must pay the respective individual supplement.

Can I drink tap water in Botswana?

No. We would advise you not to. Take your own filter or fill your canteen at places that the guides tell you are safe. You can always buy bottled water.

How much money should I bring for my personal expenses?

For basic expenses, such as not included meals on the itinerary, we can say 400€ would be enough. However there are some optional activities that you might want to do, and for those you should have your bank card nearby because the amount can double or even more.

Is insurance included in the land program? What does it cover?

It is not included for those departing from outside of Portugal, whether they are Portuguese citizens or not. Contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. The exception is for travelers not departing from national soil, whether or not they hold Portuguese nationality. The included insurance does not cover COVID-19, but you can trigger an optional insurance policy suggested by Papa-Léguas that does cover COVID-19. For more information regarding available insurance policies, see our page about travel insurance.

What documentation do I need to go on this trip?

The necessary documentation may vary, depending on your nationality, the country of origin and the places you will travel to. If you are already traveling through Africa and are joining this trip, you may be asked for a yellow fever vaccination certificate. For further information, consult the relevant embassy websites or contact Papa-Léguas.

What equipment is essential for this trip?

Comfortable clothing is the quickest answer. Aside from the obvious, you should take your sleeping bag, walking shoes, bathing suit, towel, lantern, etc. all in your backpack or duffel bag. Rigid suitcases are not suitable. When you sign up you will receive a detailed list of the equipment needed.

What are the health restrictions for entering the country?

Health restrictions may vary, depending on various factors, such as your country of origin. We recommend scheduling a Travel Medicine consultation before your trip. For further information, consult the websites of relevant agencies or contact Papa-Léguas.
