Do you find it hard to find and book a well-priced Botswana safari?

It is frustrating to be forced to look at alternative destinations because you can’t find an affordable fully inclusive Botswana safari holiday. It can be hard to find personality-filled, authentic traditional camps and one-company-one-circuit itineraries can lead to brand fatigue and a sense of monotony. Local operators can be hard to find and working with them one-on-one takes effort and requires a time commitment to understand their product and connect with them.

We have a combined experience of over 35 years in Botswana’s travel industry and have witnessed the shift towards higher-end experiences and prices which cut passionate and dedicated safari goers out of this unique and special region. We have seen well-priced, interesting, and unique safari camps be overlooked in favour of their larger competitors. Our passion for authentic and individual camps combined with our desire to see small, independent, locally-owned businesses succeed in a challenging environment led to us founding The Pack, a community with common goals and support for each other.

What they've said about us

Contact Us

I met Tara many years ago in Hoedspruit and when we both started our boutique travel agencies I specialised in South Africa, and Tara focused on Botswana. I have followed her career with great enthusiasm, and I can say with great confidence that Tara could make her way around Botswana blindfolded! When she told me about The Pack, I knew she had a great concept right there. As I love to support the small, owner-run lodges and camps in South Africa, it made perfect sense to me to do the same in Botswana and back this amazing initiative. Working with Tara is a breath of fresh African air, her communication is warm, fast, to-the-point and transparent, she always has my back, while offering great value for money in a world where prices are spiralling. Thank you for giving me peace of mind knowing that my clients are always in the very best of hands!

Ingrid GeertsemaBackroads Africa Adventure Travel

We have enjoyed working with The Pack and its collection of lodges. The reservation office is informed and quick to respond, while the lodges offer quality and value for money to discover some of the best areas in Botswana. We are looking forward to a successful partnership with the teams.

The Pack embodies its name, offering a sense of community and connection. Communication flows effortlessly, and the service received is consistently warm and efficient.

Terri HudsonIndigo Safaris

We have been working the fantastic team at The Pack for some time now and we cannot speak more highly of them. All their staff are extremely knowledgeable and efficient and their selection of Lodges they represent is above reproach. All our clients that we have sent with The Pack have given us glowing feedback and we look forward to sending many more of our clients with The Pack knowing they are in safe hands and are bound to have a truly African Safari experience like no other.

Terry MurphyAfrican Budget Safaris

We've had the pleasure of partnering with Tara, Tessa, and The Pack team since their inception. Their remarkable efficiency in providing quotes and availability has significantly expedited our booking process for trips to Botswana where the lodges they represent offer exceptional value. What sets them apart is their commitment to showcasing locally and independently owned lodges, each imbued with its own distinct charm and authenticity. It's been a delight working with them.

At The Pack, we know that you want to create a unique itinerary that suits your client and provides them with the safari of their dreams in their budget.

To do that, you need easy access to a choice of authentic, well-priced options. The challenge is that Botswana’s tourism market is dominated by high-end properties making you feel overwhelmed and excluded.

We believe that maintaining a diversity of available experiences is important as all safari goers should be able to come on holiday to experience Botswana. We understand how hard it is to find mid-range safari accommodation that offers a great experience and is independent which is why we used the opportunity to bring these wonderful owner-run camps that were previously overlooked together to create a community which elevates their presence.

We make it easy to:
1

Make a booking with our online availability and efficient central reservations desk, which provides the benefit of a single contact point and an easy booking process without losing the sense of individual flair from camp to camp.
2

Learn more about our camps and lodges by connecting with you at trade shows, on dedicated online calls and through our comprehensive newsletters.
3

Get the information you need through your access to our agent portal so all the material you need to sell these camps is in one place, standardised and easy to use.

So, let us help you with planning the trip of a lifetime for your clients. And in the meantime, get in touch for your rates and set up an online call.

You can stop feeling like a budget or midrange safari in Botswana is impossible and instead discover The Pack and our wonderful community of independently owned camps offering a unique blend of authenticity and reliability for trade partners seeking something extraordinary in Botswana’s mid-market.
