While some luxury safaris cost more than a family sedan, Safari Guru has carefully selected a handful of high-end safari destinations for the Netball World Cup attendees and their followers to offer a classic safari experience in Botswana, ending in Victoria Falls for a total of nine nights.
The Netball World Cup to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, brings together the world’s top teams. Representing Netball’s flagship event from the 28th July to the 6th August 2023 at the International Convention Center.
Safari Guru, a leading specialist safari operator has worked alongside netball enthusiasts and families to create bespoke safari itineraries to coincide with Netball World Cup 2023 event dates, providing seamless travel connections and rewarding experiences.
This Netball World Cup Safari takes you to one of Africa's most sought-after and premium wildlife destinations; a mere two and half hour flight from Cape Town, Botswana, is all about exclusivity, indulgence and raw Africa.
Botswana boasts many world-renown luxury safari properties, ranging from the classic, authentic canvas camps to the uber-luxurious offerings; still, all share the wildlife spectacle this remarkable country has to offer.
This wildlife-rich destination comprises a few iconic safari locations, but none as prominent as the Okavango Delta, a World Heritage Site listed in June 2014.
A Botswana safari would not be complete without a trip into the iconic Okavango Delta. More specifically, if possible, the Moremi National Park at the heart of the Delta. Exploring the Delta’s hidden waterways, a living ecosystem that is ever-evolving is unforgettable. It is here that we have chosen your safari, and we explore two vastly different biomes with a permanent water camp in the heart of the Delta, and a dry land camp further to the north east of the Delta's permanent waterways.
The Khwai Private Reserve one of Botswana’s best kept secrets! Khwai Private Reserve is 200,000 hectares of pristine wilderness. That’s three times the size of South Africa’s Sabi Sands – and 300 times more private! It sits just to the north east of the Delta, adjacent to Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, and the landscape is one of the most diverse we’ve come across. Think mopane clusters jostling for space with riverine forest, acacia woodland, seasonal waterholes and winding channels leading from the mighty Khwai River. We think you might quite like it.
Located in the 200,000-hectare Khwai Private Reserve, overlooking vast floodplains, Sable Alley Botswana is one of Botswana's newer authentic safari camps. Opening its doors in May 2017, Sable Alley offers light, bright and luxurious 55-square metre tents, which are both comfortable and stylish, offering plenty of space with ensuite facilities with indoor and outdoor showers.
Setari Camp Botswana is located on a picture-perfect palm island in the very heart of the Okavango Delta. Situated within a private concession of 120,000 acres of unspoilt wilderness, exclusivity and seclusion are guaranteed. Enjoy a pure Okavango Delta experience, inhabited by a myriad of birdlife and wildlife unique to this exceptional ecosystem.
Setari Camp accommodates 20 guests in 8 light and airy tents and 1 suite designed for families. Each tent cleverly combines understated luxury with an authentic and relaxed home-from-home atmosphere. The camp resembles an enormous tree-house where the entire construction is elevated with wooden walkways linking the impressive sitting and dining areas, pool-with-a-view, gym and curio shop. All of the tents have private decks with spectacular views over the Okavango Delta.
