Letaka Safaris and Wild Ark Work Together to Show People the Beautiful Wilderness

Few places in the world evoke such deep rooted wonder as the wilderness of Botswana. Letaka Safaris is one of the country’s top safari operators, citizen owned, and led by the Letaka brothers since 2000. The brothers, plus seven highly-trained guides, lead tented mobile safari tours through some of Botswana’s most beautiful locations including the Khwai region, the Central Kalahari game reserve, and Chobe National Park. Letaka also trains professional tour guides at their school in Botswana.Learn more : http://wildark.com/blog/mark-hutchinson-for-the-wild/


Botswana’s Khwai region has one of the most impressive populations of Bull elephants left in the world. Lions, leopards, and other wild cats stalk antelope, wildebeest, and impala along the woodlands and savannahs. One of their most popular tours, the Delta Miracle, explores the Okavango Delta by helicopter, foot, and boat over three days and nights, sleeping in lighted tents each night.Learn more : http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/2016/10/20/mick-fanning-the-conservationist-first-look-at-his-expedition-t/


The vast Kalahari is an immense grassland pocketed by islands of trees, ancient dunes, and steep valleys. In the rainy summer months the grass is green and filled with wildflowers. During clear winter nights, peeking outside of a Letaka tent will stun visitors with the brilliantly lit stars in an inky black sky. Letaka holds their Blooming Desert tour mainly in the northern part of the Central Kalahari, where tourists can see many of Africa’s largest and most famous herbivores and predators.Learn more : https://wild-ark.tumblr.com/


The Chobi National Park was established in 1961. It now has the highest concentrations of elephants in Africa, and features a mixture of marshland and near-desert conditions. Letaka runs several tent tours in the area including Birding Tours, Photographic Workshops, and year-round tours of the Northern Highlands.


One of Letaka’s partners is Wild Ark, a conservation society dedicated to ensuring future generations the same joy of wild animals and spaces as we and our ancestors have known. Their mission is to find and protect green belts around the world, places where animals can live out their proper natural habitat safe from human interference. Letaka is one of several tour companies that work with Wild Ark to bring people closer to the wilderness in an ecologically sound, conservationist manner.
