Gay Botswana safari tourTake the ultimate gay group safari adventure wrapped in luxury in Botswana, where you wing your way from camp to camp on small private planes. No lines, no check-in for these taxis in the sky. The view over the Okavango Delta is spectacular, flying low enough to witness abundant wildlife across a wetland wilderness of looping channels, palm-forested islands and wide grassy floodplains. Explore this natural paradise in open 4x4 vehicles, on foot and in mokoros (dugout canoes) before returning to exclusive, luxury tented camps.

Quote or Reservation


“Safari” is a Swahili word meaning “long journey.” In a less politically correct era, a safari usually meant a game hunt by men shooting big animals for sport. While such barbaric pastimes still exist in some places, a “safari” is better defined as an opportunity to glimpse nature and wildlife from a safe, unobtrusive distance and “shoot” them through the lens of a camera. Throughout Africa, many countries offer safari packages, but large cities threaten to swallow up the countryside, including the protected reserves and parks. There are not many places where you can find truly unspoiled Africa anymore, but Botswana comes pretty close. It has just two million residents, making it one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. Comprised of distinctive wildlife habitats, most of the country is devoid of large population centers and the government protects its wildlife refuges.

In addition to the Kalahari Desert which covers 70% of the country, there are grasslands, savannas and the Okavango Delta, earth’s largest inland water system and wetlands area. In Northern Botswana, one can find Blue Wildebeest, antelopes, lions, giraffes, water buffalo, leopard and one of the few remaining large populations of the endangered African Wild Dog. Chobe National Park has the world's largest concentration of African elephants. The park covers about 4,250 square miles and supports about 350 species of birds.

Cape Town gay tour


Optional Pre-Tour Extension to Cape Town, South Africa

Day 01 - Sunday, May 03, 2020
Johannesburg / Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town gay tour - Taj HotelUpon arrival at the Johannesburg International Airport you will connect with your flight to Cape Town, South Africa’s “Mother City”. Upon arrival, you will be met and escorted to your hotel.

The provincial capital, Cape Town, is a sophisticated city with plenty to see and do, particularly around the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront area, where delightful buildings of the Cape Dutch and Victorian-era architecture have been restored as shops, restaurants, museums and pubs, while the busy water traffic of the docks goes on unabated. Overnight in Cape Town.

Hotel: Taj Cape Town Hotel, Cape Town, 5*


Day 02 - Monday, May 04, 2020
Cape Town / Cape Peninsula
Cape Peninsula gay tourWe take a breathtaking coastal drive to the Cape of Good Hope, surrounded by spectacular mountains, rugged shorelines, and the blue sea below. See Devil's Peak, Lion's Head, Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles. Pass quaint seaside towns as you continue to Cape Point where the stormy waters of the Atlantic meet up with the calm waters of the Indian Ocean. At Cape Point, climb the steps or ride a funicular to the top where you can explore a lighthouse, enjoy the views or even indulge in a bit of shopping. You will have the chance to explore the Cape Point Nature Reserve which is host to approximately half of the 2,700 species of indigenous plants contained in the Cape Peninsula, as well as 250 species of birds and a wide variety of mammal species.

Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, and we continue to Boulders Beach where the African (Jackass) Penguins can be seen, also known as the Black-footed Penguins. These flightless seabirds are found only on the coast of Southern Africa and the only penguins found on this continent. Enjoy a delightful walk on a specially-built platform onto the little sheltered beach where they nest among the rocks, and "waddle" up and down into and out of the sea. Since the penguins are accustomed to human presence you can safely get within a few feet of them as you stand on the platform. Return to Cape Town in the evening.

Day 03 - Tuesday, May 05, 2020
Cape Town: Cape Malay/ Township Tour
Cape Malay gay tourYour first stop for the day is Cape Malay Quarter, or 'Bo-Kaap,' which sprawls along the slopes of Signal Hill, bordering Cape Town, presenting a scenario of enduring historic and cultural significance. Bo-Kaap's attractive, brightly colored, flat-roofed houses, decorative mosques and the sound of the muezzin calling over the city streets have remained relatively undisturbed for all this time. The major threat facing this attractive area is now not forced removals, but gentrification. Here, you will have a hands-on, practical lesson on how to cook like a real Cape Malay Auntie! A local woman will host you at her home, where you will learn secret cooking techniques and get an insight into daily life in the Bo-Kaap. The workshop ends with lunch.

Your day ends with a tour of District Six at Cape Flats with a township guide, and Langa, the oldest formal black township in Cape Town. Witness the living accommodations created at the height of the apartheid era as a dormitory area for the working class. Today residents continue to face challenges of HIV/AIDS and poverty in post-apartheid South Africa. Your tour will include a visit to the District Six Museum, named for the black South African residents displaced from the Sixth Municipal District of Cape Town in 1901. On February 11, 1966 it was declared a white area, and by 1982, more than 60,000 people were forcibly removed to barren outlying areas aptly known as the Cape Flats, and their houses in District Six were flattened by bulldozers. The District Six Museum, established in December 1994, tells their story.

Meals: Brekfast & Lunch
Hotel: Taj Cape Town Hotel, Cape Town, 5*


Day 04 - Wednesday, May 06, 2020
Cape Town: Table Mountain/Winelands
Table Mountain gay tourGet a feel of what Cape Town is all about by taking the cable car to the top of Table Mountain, the signature sight of this city, easily one of the most recognizable mountains in the world. This tour is very dependent on the wind factor, as well as the clouds. Many times clouds cover this flat-topped mountain, which rises to 3,563 feet above sea level and the locals affectionately say it’s a white tablecloth. For nature lovers, the birding is awesome, and more than 1400 species of flowering plants have been recorded on the mountain which makes it a spectacular sight in the spring. Cute guinea pig-like creatures known as rock dassies, or hyraxes, (genetically, the closest living relatives to elephants) scuttle everywhere.

Continue to the winelands region situated below the spectacular Boland Mountains only 50 minutes from the city. Discover the internationally acclaimed vineyards of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franshhoek on the Western Cape, along a most scenic route. This afternoon explore the university town of Stellenbosch, the oldest town in South Africa after Cape Town, undoubtedly the most scenic and historically-preserved town in Southern Africa. Oak-lined streets next to water furrows compliment the many fine examples of elegant Cape Dutch, Victorian and Georgian architecture - all part of this unique "Town of Oaks".

Meals: Brekfast & Lunch
Hotel: Taj Cape Town Hotel, Cape Town, 5*


Day 05 - Thursday, May 07, 2020

Animal Kingdom - Botswana Luxury Gay Safari Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Thursday, May 07, 2020
Arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa
Johannesburg gay tour - D'Oreale Grande HotelUpon arrival at the Johannesburg International Airport this afternoon, you will be met and escorted to your hotel. Often called Jo’burg, Johannesburg is the country's largest city and financial center with ultra-modern skyscrapers and a bustling way of life. It is the city of gold, as its claim to fame is the gold that was discovered close-by.

Our hotel, D'Oreale Grande, is situated near Johannesburg International Airport, boasting luxurious accommodations with palatial buildings set in a display of gardens, fountains and statues. Richly cloaked surroundings such as marble floors, plush carpets, magnificent stained glass domes, highly decorated murals and frescos, sculptures, intricate mosaics and Roman columns and arches contribute to an atmosphere of intimacy, classical elegance and lavish opulence.

Hotel: Peermont D'Oreale Grande Hotel, Johannesburg, 5*


Day 2 - Friday, May 08, 2020
Maun / Makgadikgadi Pan National Park
Botswana gay safari - Bull elephantWe check out of our hotel and drive back to the airport for our morning flight to Maun, Botswana’s tourism capital. From there, we connect with our flight to Leroo La Tau at the edge of Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, named for ancient Lake Makgadikadi that disappeared thousands of years ago. What remains is a collection of salt pans that cover approximately 6,200 square miles due south of the Okavango. The Makgadikgadi is the largest expanse of 'nothingness' on earth, an area the size of Switzerland clearly visible from outer-space, devoid of anything but salt and shimmering horizon. With the coming of the rains, life-giving water seeps into the pans, transforming it into one of Africa's most fecund ecosystems. Unbelievable numbers of migratory birds flock to the pans and the grasslands swarm with a living mantle of zebra and wildebeest, participants in the second biggest animal migration on the African continent. The dry season also brings desert wildlife such as gemsbok and springbok into view.

Our lodge, Leroo La Tau, is built on the cliffs above the Boteti River which allows guests a raised vantage point resulting in spectacular wildlife sightings. The Boteti River which dried up for 28 years is now flowing again. This life line of water is a magnet for wildlife to congregate and herds of zebra and wildebeest migrate here for this precious resource. The river’s return has transformed the region and supports a good volume of wildlife all year round with sightings of all the common antelopes, including healthy populations of kudu as well as giraffe. Huge elephant bulls are based along the river all year round and make for great sightings splashing in the river, and lion are very active in the region. The river draws thousands of zebras galloping up and down the dusty river banks for quite possibly one of the best zebra viewing experiences in Africa!

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Leroo La Tau Lodge, Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, 4*


Day 3 - Saturday, May 09, 2020
Nxai Pans National Park
Botswana gay safari - Baobab treesOn your second day here, enjoy a full day excursion to Nxai Pans National Park and the famous Baobab tree forest known as Baines. Here one can witness the typical Kalahari Plains wildlife characteristic of the desert regions. Large herds of springbok, oryx (gemsbok) and eland all year round and during the summer season (green season) zebra and wildebeest can be seen massing as the migration takes them to the open pans of water and sweet grasses.

Departure from Leroo La Tau is in the early morning and the full day is spent exploring the region before returning to the lodge at sunset.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Leroo La Tau Lodge, Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, 4*


Day 4 - Sunday, May 10, 2020
Rhino Relocation Project / Khumaga Village
Botswana gay safari - RhinoRhino populations are steadily growing in Botswana and there’s a huge relocation of rhino into the country from neighboring South Africa. Our safari company is very proactively involved in Botswana’s Rhino Relocation and Reintroduction Project with the Department of Wildlife in Botswana and have safely been introducing rhino to the region. The rhino population has established itself in Makgadikgadi Pans National Park for the first time in over 200 years. Rhinos are well protected and quite shy but there’s always the chance you might see them on your game runs. A portion of revenue from each of the guests that stay at Leroo La Tau goes directly towards the Rhino Relocation and Reintroduction Project and facilitates the costly process of fitting tracking devices and monitoring the health and breeding of this highly endangered species.

Leroo La Tau works very closely with the community of Khumaga Village, which is located near the lodge. There are numerous projects which the lodge gets involved in and in turn, guests can see and understand rural local life here. A visit to the village and the local school will be included in your stay at Leroo La Tau. Activities during your three-night stay at Leroo are varied and take in most of the area. These include game drives, night drives and boat cruises on the Boteti River.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Leroo La Tau Lodge, Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, 4*

The rare Sitatunga antelope lives in the papyrus banks of the waterways. Bird watching is excellent throughout the year, with powerboat visits to the heronries on Gadikwe.

The reserve is home to over 400 species of birds and a vast variety of mammal, insect, plant, fish and reptile species have successfully adapted to the swamp conditions. Moremi Game Reserve is a wilderness paradise, with great game viewing throughout the year.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Camp Moremi, Moremi Game Reserve


Day 7 - Wednesday, May 13, 2020
Okavango Delta
Okavango Delta gay safariToday’s flight takes you to one of the world’s most distinctive regions, the Okavango Delta – earth’s largest inland water system. Its headwaters start in Angola’s western highlands, with numerous tributaries joining to form the Cubango River, which then flows through Namibia (called the Kavango) and finally enters Botswana, where it is then called the Okavango. Millions of years ago the Okavango River flowed into a large inland lake called Lake Makgadikgadi (now Makgadikgadi Pans). Tectonic activity and faulting interrupted the flow of the river causing it to back up and form what is now the Okavango Delta. This has created a unique system of waterways that now supports a vast array of animal and plant life that would have otherwise been a dry Kalahari savannah.

Camp Okavango is situated on remote Nxaragha Island in the very heartland of the Okavango Delta. The camp comprises 12 two-bedded East African style tents featuring private sundecks and en-suite hot shower and waterborne toilets, and each tent is exquisitely furnished. Camp Okavango's unashamed luxury blends with the Africa of yore in the elegant thatch and lethaka main lodge buildings. Meals are silver service at dining tables romantically lit by candelabra. The dining-room leads onto an expansive open-air patio for evenings around a blazing camp fire. Other lodge facilities include a cocktail bar, lounge, wildlife reference library, a secluded bird-viewing hide, shaded hammocks, reading benches and a delightful sun-deck and plunge pool for relaxation during the hot midday hours.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Camp Okavango, Okavango Delta


Day 8 - Thursday, May 14, 2020
Okavango Delta Second Day
Okavango Boat Trip at SunsetYour activities at Camp Okavango for your two days here will center around mokoro (dugout canoe) rides, boat excursions and walking safaris. See the delta from water level and relax as you glide through quiet reed-lined channels.

Birding is excellent, with more than 600 species residing within the 7,000 square miles of islands, marshes, flood plains, and channels of which the Okavango is comprised. Enjoy a walking safari and take a boat through the reeds to spot some of the larger species such as elephant, red lechwe, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, baboon, monkey, warthog, and buffalo, along with major predators such as lion, leopard, and hyena. If you are lucky, spot the elusive sitatunga antelope which have been known to sleep in the water, with only their nostrils resting above the water’s surface.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Camp Okavango, Okavango Delta


Day 9 - Friday, May 15, 2020
Last Morning Game Drive / Return to Johannesburg

Meals: Breakfast


Victoria Falls gay tour


Optional Post-Tour Extension to Chobe & Victoria Falls

Days 9 & 10 - Friday & Saturday, May 15 & 16, 2020
Kasane / Chobe Game Lodge
Chobe hipposToday, bid farewell to the rest of the group returning home tonight, and connect with your flight to Kasane. Upon arrival you will be met and transferred to Chobe National Park where you will spend the next two days enjoying wildlife viewing and boat activities. It is the second largest park in Botswana, and the first declared national park. The park covers a wide variety of country - riverine forest, floodplain, periodic marsh, mopane and miombo woodland and a few rocky outcrops. Such a diversity of habitats implies a wide variety of wildlife, which ranges from water animals such as hippo, crocodile, otter and fish, to forest and dry land species such as elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and eland, and over 400 different species of bird. In all areas, predators abound with lion, leopard, cheetah and hyena being plentiful.

A major feature of Chobe National Park is its overabundance of elephants, often seen at the riverfront bathing in the water. Vast numbers of elephants come down to drink in the late afternoons and it is possible to see as many as 1,000 of these magnificent animals in a two-hour wildlife drive. Botswana’s elephant population is currently estimated at around 120,000, which has built up steadily from a few thousand in the early 1900s and has escaped the massive illegal decimation of other populations in the 1970s and 1980s. The elephants in this area have the distinction of being the largest in body size of all living elephants, although the ivory is brittle so you will not see many huge tuskers among these gentle giants.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Chobe Game Lodge, Chobe National Park


Days 11 & 12 - Sunday & Monday, May 17 & 18, 2020
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Gay Victoria Falls tourHead to the mighty Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. At more than twice the size of Niagara Falls it is no surprise that Victoria Falls are among the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke that Thunders), derived from the towering column of spray when the Zambezi River runs high, is the name that Zimbabwe's local people have given to this awesome natural phenomenon. Five separate falls make up this incredible spectacle that plunges more than 300 feet into a sheer-sided chasm which separates Zimbabwe from Zambia. The awe-inspiring abyss is spanned by a 1905 Edwardian bridge which links the two countries and many adventurers now use to bungee jump. The masses of water plunging down the falls and into the gorge below originate from the mighty Zambezi River that meanders through more than 1,677 miles of African countryside.

Your two-day visit will include a tour of the falls on the Zimbabwe side. An afternoon sundowner cruise on a private boat will be a highlight as you glide along the Zambezi River, watching hippos snort, elephants drink on the riverbank, monkeys jump from branch to branch, birds fly overhead or pose for a photograph on the branches, and much more. Enjoy your gin and tonic, cool beer, or drink of choice, and see a panoramic sunset as the sun dips below the horizon, painting the whole area in unbelievable colors of brilliant reds, yellows, purples and mauves.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: The Elephant Camp, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, 4*


Day 13 - Tuesday, May 19, 2020
Victoria Falls / Johannesburg / En Route
You have one last chance to photograph the incredible falls this morning before we transfer to the airport for our late morning flight to Johannesburg. Here you will connect with your overnight international flight back home.

Consult your physician or a local travel clinic to create a personalized vaccination program specifically for you. You must have your own health insurance, and have no physical problems or conditions that would be adversely affected by riding in 4 X 4 vehicles on rough, bumpy roads or walking 3-4 miles per day (on level ground.) You must be in good physical condition to participate in this trip.
Remember: Plan ahead! This is not a tour that you can book at the last minute, hop on a plane and go. You will need at least one month prior to departure to plan for your immunizations!

Exit Requirements
There are no departure tax for any of the countries we visit on this tour, other than what is included in the cost of your airfare.

Making Travel Arrangements to South Africa
On this tour, international airfare to Johannesburg is not included, but all the internal flights mentioned in the itinerary are included in the tour price of this trip. You only need to purchase round-trip international flights to Johannesburg, South Africa (airport code JNB), and back to your home country.
Unless you choose to arrive a day early, you should plan to arrive in Johannnesburg by the afternoon of Thursday, May 7, 2020.
Evening departure is from Johannesburg on Friday, May 15, 2020 (main tour), or Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at the conclusion of the Victoria Falls extension.

What to Bring
Although international flights from the U.S. allow one piece of checked luggage not exceeding 50 lbs., our charter flights between the camps in Botswana only allow a maximum weight of 33 lbs. (which includes your carry-on bag and camera equipment.) The size and structure of your baggage is limited to soft-sided luggage only (about 24” X 17” X 8”). Large, hard-sided suitcases are virtually impossible to stow on small aircraft and vehicles and therefore should NOT be used. Laundry service is included at the camps, so this should enable you to pack light. THESE WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS ARE VERY IMPORTANT AND STRICTLY ENFORCED! A detailed packing list will be forwarded to you once we have received your deposit for this tour. That list will focus on the gear needed for the Safari.

Money Matters
The currency of Botswana is the Pulas. One U.S. dollar is worth approximately 10.64 Botswana Pulas as of May 5, 2019, Avoid changing money into local currency prior to leaving home, as you will get the worst exchange rate. Plan to change some money into local currency upon arrival in each country, or use an ATM machine (only available in the major cities). You should use your Visa, Mastercard, or American Express to make most purchases, but you will have very few expenses during the safari as most everything included in the tour package.

The recent trend has been for travelers to finalize their plans much closer to departure time than was customary in the past. While we try to be as flexible as possible we often must turn away last minute registrants because we relinquish hotel space and air reservations 8 – 12 weeks prior to departure! Please keep this in mind when making your travel plans.
