John Chase Safaris is a luxury camping experience with 3m x 4m Meru-style tents, en suite bush bathrooms, a dedicated dining tent, and a lounge gazebo for ultimate outdoor relaxation.

About the camp

John Chase Safaris goes above and beyond when it comes to guests’ camping comfort. A colonial flair is strung throughout the camp, from the Meru-style bedroom tents, to the dining tent, and the airy lounge area.

Safari operators have sole-use of the campsites in various locations, ensuring their exclusivity and remoteness. Delectable meals are enjoyed either out under the stars or under cover of the dining tent.

Tina Chase is a passionate and flawless host, and the attention applied to the details of the camp features as well as its smooth operation is down to her skill and finesse. Guest and guide tents are positioned near the campfire, dining and relaxation areas, while the ‘working’ side of camp is subtly hidden away.

Location

All the best bits of Botswana. This country is home to an incredibly diverse environment hosting a wide variety of Africa’s biggest and smallest fauna and flora. John Chase Safaris is a mobile adventure through multiple destinations in Botswana, seamlessly sewn together by the experts.

Itineraries include luxury camping or lodging in Moremi Game Reserve, Central Kalahari, Makgadikgadi Pans, Nxai Pan, and Chobe National Park. Pre-prepared campsites are located in private BOGA (Botswana Guides Association) or HATAB (Hospitality and Tourism Association of Botswana) sites well off the beaten track, while Kwando Safaris luxury lodges are utilised for the Nxai Pan or Tau Pan leg of the itinerary.

Getting There

Guests will arrange their own international or domestic flights to Botswana up until the point arranged for John Chase Safaris to meet guests at their hotel or the airport when they arrive. Depending on whether it is a set-departure or tailor-made safari, guests’ first destination in Botswana will vary.

Set departures begin in Maun, where a John Chase Safaris representative will collect guests from Maun airport/hotel and whisk them off in a game drive vehicle to their campsite in Moremi Game Reserve (roughly a 3-4 hour drive).

Should the safari begin in Chobe, guests will be met at Kasane airport and commence the 2 hour journey through Chobe National Park to the prepared campsite.
