Blog - Botswana

Our blogs are another way to find out more of the destinations and experiences you might want to consider when you're travelling.

This library of stories, articles and observations are written by our travellers, consultants, people we work with in destinations, and travel journalists.
Have a look at our 'Interviews' to meet a few of our travellers -- and if you're a Tribes traveller and want to either write a blog or take part in a 'Face to Face with ...' interview, we'd love to hear from you.
Enjoy!

Botswana Adventure

21st June – 5th July 2017 When it comes to a holiday, my idea of heaven is: somewhere fairly private and quiet, a short distance from a beach and other resort amenities, plenty of sunshine, a nearby swimming pool, comfortable sunbed and my fully charged Kindle.
