If you are planning a trip to Africa let us firstly congratulate you on choosing Botswana, Africa’s wistful wildlife and wetland wonderland. Secondly, congratulations on choosing to travel with Letaka Safaris, Botswana’s premier mobile safari operator. Letaka Safaris is a citizen-owned safari company that has been operating in Botswana since October 2000. The founding directors, known locally as the Letaka Brothers, have over 40 years of combined guiding experience and have been guiding safaris full-time in Botswana since the mid-90’s. Originally all our safaris were owner-guided but the company has now grown to employ seven of Botswana’s most highly experienced mobile safari guides.
The focus of our company has always been on the quality of our guides, hence our close association with Okavango Guiding School, a training facility which we created to elevate the standard of guiding in Botswana. Many of Botswana’s top guides pass through Okavango Guiding School’s doors at one time or another and we are proud to continue this initiative to create a guiding fraternity that will stand head and shoulders above other African destinations.
Mobile tented safaris in Botswana are without a doubt the best way to experience one of Africa’s last unspoilt wilderness areas, so pack your bags and book that flight!

Safari Brothers documents the ups and downs of running a safari company in Botswana's Okavango Delta. Brothers Brent and Grant along with their father Mike and a large team of Letaka stalwarts take us through the myriad challenges which form the background of running a safari company in Africa. The show was the brainchild of Patrick Greene, owner of Symbio Studios and Emmy award-winning director of the hugely successful Jeff Corwin Ocean Mysteries series. Patrick first met Brent and Grant whilst filming an Ocean Mysteries episode in Botswana and nearly two years later Safari Brothers was born.
The six episodes which make up Season One of the Safari Brothers show were filmed over 3 months at the Letaka Safaris base in Maun as well as many wilder ...
We learned so much and felt very lucky to have a guide so knowledgeable and friendly. KB made the trip and we all recommend Letaka specifically because it’s clear they have the best guides.
Exceeded expectations (which were high!). Comfort of camp and staff combined with the best guide and a good vehicle made this an experience of a lifetime. 100+ elephants, 20+ lions, 40+ hippos, 7+ leopards, 20+ wilddogs WOW!
