Medical & Evacuation Insurance
All participants on this trip are required to have emergency medical ($50,000) and emergency evacuation ($500,000) insurance valid in their destination country.

Our Botswana Adventure Safari departure dates coincide with the Botswana winter and spring months, an ideal time to be in the Delta. Rainfall is uncommon in the Okavango during these months and vegetation will dry up as the season progresses making game viewing easier. The temperature variances between day and night are more pronounced with average daytime temperatures generally falling between the high 70s and low 90s (warmer in October than in June-September) and nighttime temperatures often dropping into the 40s. Although midday temperatures are always warm, early morning and nighttime on game drives and at camp can be quite cool and participants should plan on following the recommendations on our Gear List and bringing some warm clothing.
This trip is subject to the booking information set forth in the current REI Adventures Reservation Information. Please read this information carefully and call us if you have any questions. Additional trip information will be provided upon sign up. We highly recommend the purchase of travel insurance through REI Adventures. If coverage is purchased at the time of your initial reservation, the 'Pre-existing Conditions Exclusion' is waived (certain exclusions apply).
We look forward to having you join us for the trip of a lifetime! Why wait? Space is limited, reserve your adventure today.
