               Reservations or Booking of Campsites in Botswana National Parks (DWNP)

With the privatization of campsites by the DWNP, there is now a convuluted procedure to booking campsites.

Currently, 4 different companies have been awarded management and operation of DWNP campsites in

Moremi, Savute, Chobe, Kalahari / CKGR, Khutse, Makgadikgadi Pans and Nxai Pan.  

                                                Assistance Reserving Campsites

If you require a reserved camping or lodging itinerary booked for you, contact us with the pertinent information, 

and we will attempt to put together an itinerary to your specifications. The convuluted process of booking

campsites with each individual privatised campsite operators and organizing a sensible itinerary has

made it frustrating for most people, including travel agents and tour operators. We are in Maun, Botswana. 

Maun is also where most of the privatized campsite operators, Khwai Development Trust, and DWNP offices

are located. We are in contact with them on a daily basis and can organise an itinerary quickly for you, providing

the campsites and accommodations on the dates you prefer are available.

Our comprehensive itinerary service includes arranging all campsites, lodging, DWNP permits,

and activities bookings that you will require. There is a nominal booking fee for this complete, fully

customized service. Once all your bookings are made, including DWNPs permits, we can hold them till you

collect them in Maun or we can courier your vouchers to you.

ONE COMPANY BOOKS IT ALL. ONE PAYMENT. QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY.

                                                               Travel Agent and Tour Operator enquiries welcome  

                                                 Booking Campsites Early

Reservations for campsites during high and shoulder seasons in most of the Northern Parks can require up to

11 months in advance booking. There are just 31 campsites in Moremi and 14 in Savute available to the public

and tour operators (not a member of either HATAB or BOGA). You should consider making reservations

at your earliest opportunity, in order to have a reasonable chance of getting your preferred itinerary.

                                                     DWNP Privatised Campsites                                   

 

Several DWNP campsites have been

privatised. DWNP Park Entry Fees are

still applicable and payable to the DWNP,

plus the campsite fees to the operators

of the campsites. Each company is in control

of their private campsite. However, visitors are

still required to purchase day entry permits

for each day/night in the park. You should

have in your possession the original DWNP

receipt of payment of entry and vehicle

fees when arriving at park gates - no

photocopied permits accepted. This will

avoid  unnecessary problems, such as

denied entry into the park or double

payment of DWNP fees. 

March 2011- payment of DWNP fees

can now be made at park entrance

gates. Not internal gates. We

suggest you bring correct change.

 

           Department of Wildlife and National Parks Fees & Reservations

Efffective 2009, the parks need to be paid in advance, camping as well as entrance fees. This can be arranged

through their offices in Gaborone, Maun, Kasane, Francistown, Thsabong, Ghanzi, Kang, and Letlhakane.   

Payments are not always accepted at the Park Gates. You may be refused entry if you haven't paid Park Entry

Fees in advance.  There are some exceptions like Chobe-Sedudu Gate.  

.

General guideline:

Visitors to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park can pay at Kang Wildlife office and Tsabong (once the machine has

been installed)

Visitors to Central Kalahari and Khutse Game Reserves can pay in Kang, Gaborone,  Letlhakane and

Ghanzi Wildlife offices.

Visitors to Chobe National Park, Moremi Game Reserve, Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pan National Parks can pay 

in Gaborone, Francistown, Letlhakane, Maun and Kasane Wildlife offices.

Paying via Credit Card and International bank draft remains possible like before. Credit Card machines have

also been installed at these offices where tourists have an option of paying using Visa and MasterCard

credit cards only (That doesn't necessarily mean the Credit Card machine will be operational when you arrive).

.

Park gate times:

April-September > 06:00 - 18:30

October - March > 05:00 - 19:00

No driving is allowed outside the above hours.

Enter into a National Park at anytime between normal gate hours.
