Ker & Downey Botswana provides guests with the highest-quality wildlife and adventure safari experience, while preserving the delicate environment and natural beauty of Botswana. It also fosters the economic and social development of local communities and Botswana as a whole.

The prestigious Ker & Downey Botswana portfolio includes Shinde, Shinde Enclave and Kanana — tented camps in private concessions in the Okavango Delta — and Okuti, a lodge situated within the renowned Moremi Game Reserve.

Nestled on a lush palm island in the heart of the northern Okavango Delta, Shinde is an intimate, classic camp on the edge of Shinde lagoon, which teems with animal and birdlife. It’s centred on a multi-tiered dining room and lounge set under canvas, shaded by ebony and mangosteen trees

Okuti is situated alongside the Maunachira River, which flows through Xakanaxa Lagoon within the world-renowned Moremi Game Reserve — a prime game-viewing area.

Meanwhile, Kanana — a hidden jewel on the Xudum River — is found in the south west of the Okavango Delta. The area encompasses a necklace of islands dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knobthorn, and is home to myriad birds, plants and animals. The nature of the habitat means it’s the perfect place to experience the diversity of species found within the Okavango Delta.

From the Footsteps Camp, The Ker & Downey Botswana specialist adventure safari, Footsteps Across the Delta, focuses on guided wilderness explorations on foot, giving guests the chance to get up close to the African bush

The Young Explorers safari, meanwhile, provides an exciting opportunity for families to explore the bush together. Parents can enjoy some peace and quiet while expertly trained Young Explorers guides entertain children of all ages with a multitude of activities designed to be both educational and inspiring. The experience is sure to leave a lasting impression and fond memories in the minds of all the family.

Ker & Downey Botswana also owns and operates a fleet of private aircraft, under the Safari Air banner.
