Letaka Safaris is a safari company based in Maun, Botswana offering scheduled safari departures as well as private and tailor-made safaris throughout the year. The majority of the safaris are comfortable mobile safaris meaning that there is a team that sets up camp ahead of time and prepares all meals. Our focus on safari is to give guests comfortable accommodation along with the best guides in the business, meaning that the guests can focus on the exceptional game viewing on offer.

'Letaka' is derived from the Setswana word 'lethlaka' which is the name given to the Phragmites reeds found in large parts of the Okavango Delta. As a result of their surname, co-founders Brent & Grant Reed were known as the 'Lethlaka Brothers' since their arrival in the delta and so settled on the name of Letaka Safaris for their company which would become renowned for it's excellent guiding standards. Letaka Safaris has also established itself as Botswana's foremost birding safari outfitter and the company now organises birdwatching tours throughout Southern Africa.

Leave time behind and let the prehistoric rhythms guide you through an unforgettable African experience. Over the ancient rust-red sands of the Namib and Kalahari deserts, in-between the sparkling veins of the Okavango Delta and before the roaring majesty of the Victoria Falls, Africa will filter into your soul.

Join us on a magical journey, which will not end when you depart but play on through your mind until you relent and return to us again...

about letaka safaris

Letaka Safaris was created by brothers, Brent and Grant Reed, both with decades of experience in the African bush. With a deep passion for everything Africa, they set out to create a safari experience that guarantees the highest level of guiding and an intimate African experience. All of the Letaka guides are professionally trained with formal qualifications including post graduate degrees. Their knowledge and an eye for detail are evident in their work, and the wealth of experience as well as a passion for the bush is unsurpassed.

Each journey has been designed by Letaka Safaris to give the discerning guest a holistic African experience. Our safaris offer variety, adventure, fun and an in-depth experience of the African wilderness. Our most popular trips are the tented safaris, which include our walking and driving mobile safaris. Our lodge safaris are also available for those requiring the highest level of comfort. While all our safaris offer a holistic African experience Letaka Safaris has long been known as THE birding company in Botswana and is the first company to offer scheduled birding departures for individuals passionate about birds.

Letaka Safaris is a proud partner of Okavango Guiding School which strives to empower the citizens of Botswana in the tourism industry and thus promoting conservation through education.

We offer you an experience, not just a holiday... we look forward to planning your safari to Africa with you. Please use our enquiry form to contact us.

exclusive wilderness sites on safari
Letaka uses Hospitality and Tourism Association of Botswana Sites (HATAB) within the National Parks and Game Reserves which are exclusive wilderness sites and can only be booked by members of HATAB. There are no fixed buildings or facilities at these sites and the entire camp is erected and removed by the Letaka support team.
accommodation on safari
The tents are 9x15ft wilderness tents with high roof and a 9ft covered area in front of the tent. The tents are fitted with high camp beds made up with mattresses, sheets, duvets and pillows and have en-suite long drop toilet facilities and a bucket shower at the rear of the tent. Showers can be ordered as hot, cold or warm and the water is heated in a bucket on the fire. Both hand towels and bath towels are supplied for the guests' convenience but please note that guests should bring their own personal items and toiletries.

Each tent has an oil/paraffin lamp on the veranda and in the bathroom and within the tent itself, a LED rechargeable camp light is supplied along with a side table in the sleeping area and in the bathroom.

For families travelling with younger children on private trips, Letaka Safaris have designed a family safari tent, ensuring the children's safety and their parent's peace of mind. A family tent is a two-bedroom unit with an adjoining bathroom and lockable exit/entrance with each tent taking 2 people in each.
