About Specialist Botswana

Experts in sourcing scheduled small group safaris to Botswana and creating tailor-made Botswana safari holidays for discerning travellers, Specialist Botswana is a professional and personable UK tour operator. With a strong emphasis on providing high quality active, adventurous and experiential travel, we also specialise in private guided safaris to Botswana for couples, families, friends or groups.

Our itineraries are meticulously planned, are tried and tested, and we hand-pick and carefully vet our local ground suppliers to ensure high quality holiday experiences.

Offering international flight-inclusive or land-only Botswana safari packages, Specialist Botswana is owned and managed by Nick and Sue Anstead, working in close partnership with Botswana’s leading mobile camping safari operator – Wilderness Dawning – and Botswana’s most authentic, responsible and best value safari lodge group – Desert & Delta Safaris.

Absolutely addicted to Africa, Nick and Sue Anstead have spent over 20 years travelling in Africa. Between then they’ve travelled through 42 African nations (still a few to go…), come face to face with gorillas, explored ancient Saharan cities, dived with Great White Sharks, boated down the Congo, spent 6 months sailing feluccas on the Egyptian Nile, and…. found lots of time to indulge in their main passion – wildlife safaris!

Since the early days of living and working as tour and safari guides in east and southern Africa followed by 10 years directing and developing African operations and product at Explore, Nick and Sue finally decided to put their years of training, expertise and knowledge into their own business – Specialist Africa!

Today, Specialist Africa is a fully accredited member of the African Travel and Tourism Association (ATTA – Advancing Tourism To Africa), a highly respected organisation which represents travel operators on the African continent. Our business is also a member of one of the UK’s leading travel bodies – the Travel Trust Association (TTA) and we adhere to a strict code of practice to ensure a high quality of service and operation. All air-inclusive holiday packages provided by Specialist Africa are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is T10190.
