Film Crews

Filming in Botswana

Letaka Safaris has been providing logistical support and filming camps for film crews since 2001.  We know what it takes to make a film camp work in Botswana, wherever you need to go, whatever you need to do, we can make it happen. Because of the remote nature of many of Botswana’s best filming locations, it is essential for film crews to team up with a company that has an intimate knowledge of local logistics, requirements and regulations. Letaka Safaris can provide this support and are proud to have an excellent working relationship with numerous international TV networks and production companies.

We were impressed by the amount of time on game drives and how hard our guide worked at making sure we saw as much as possible. The organisation of the trip was excellent and great care was taken to make us as comfortable as possible.The standard of cuisine was exceptional, we remain amazed at how such superb meals were produced with minimal space and equipment and over an open fire.The staff were very friendly and ever-willing to help us. They always had a smile on their faces……thank you for one of the best holidays we have ever had.
