Tuskers Bush Camp lies between Nxai Pan National Park in the east and Moremi Game Reserve in the west, within the Kwatale Conservancy. Tuskers encompasses 365 000 hectares of acacia scrub and mopane woodland, plus the northern tip of the Botswana Kalahari, making this exclusive tract of land ideal for game drives, and nature walks led by the local San people as part of our Bushman experience.

6 Meru-style canvas safari tents are located between the evergreen mopane trees, looking out into the veld and offering guests seclusion and privacy during their stay. En suite bathrooms comply with the sustainable construction of the camp, with heated bucket showers and eco bush toilets.

The main dining tent, boma, and bar overlook a waterhole, and the free-flow of animals create a wild and untamed ambience throughout. Tuskers is a true canvas bush camp with added luxuries; and is located in a true wilderness region of Botswana. Experience game drives, a bushman walk, and sundowners when you stay at Tuskers.


Tuskers is located only 1.5 to 2 hour drive (4 x 4 only) from Maun, and is easily and afforably accessed by self-drivers (4 x 4 only) from Maun Airport. Alternatively, a road transfer from the airport to the camp can be arranged.

Self-drivers (4 x 4 only) travelling from Maun will exit the airport on Airport Rd and turn left at the stop street meeting Sir Seretse Khama Rd. Continue on Sir Seretse Khama Rd until you exit Maun town, cross the Thamalakane River and arrive at a roundabout. Take the first exit left off the roundabout and continue in the direction of Mababe.

The road becomes a gravel road and you will cross the vet fence. Continue straight on the gravel road until turning right onto another gravel road and drive along the fence for +-15km until reaching  Tuskers Bush Camp.


The San People are the ancients of southern Africa, believed to have a genetic lineage dating back some 80 000 years. It’s without a doubt that the humble hunter-gatherer San people are the oldest inhabitants of Botswana, Namibia, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and South Africa. The hunter-gatherer communities found within various regions in southern Africa pre-dated the arrival of other humans, and over centuries they were eventually forced to live a more modern lifestyle. To date there are many direct descendants of the Bushmen dwelling within certain pockets of wilderness in southern Africa, where they either live as close to their original lifestyle as possible or spend time educating and introducing others to the original San way of life. At Tuskers Bush Camp we now offer a Bushman experience that introduces guests to the traditional Bushman lifestyle.

Game Viewing

Tuskers Bush Camp occupies a vast concession neighbouring the Moremi Game Reserve and is home to lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, giraffe, various antelope, and a plethora of birds.


Moremi is renowned for its abundance of predators, and, sharing unfenced borders with the Moremi, the Tuskers concession is home to resident lions, stalking leopards, wild dogs, among others. Hyenas send their eerie calls into the night, and are often discovered lurking around carcasses. The cheetah is a rare and unique big cat, also living in the concession, while the great Nile crocodile lies low in the deeper waters.


Elephants populate this area of Botswana in such great numbers and can be seen ambling contently through the lodge grounds, at the pan in front of the lodge, or bulldozing through the mopane woodlands they like so much. Other mammals that flourish in the concession are Cape buffalo, giraffe, zebra, hippo, lechwe, tsessebe, blue wildebeest, kudu, sable, warthog, and baboon.


The varying habitats offer a smorgasbord of birder’s delights, from water bird species, which are abundant around the pans and lagoons, to grassland birds, raptors, and ground fowls that send a shrieking chorus into the first morning light. Summer brings in the migrant species, which fleck colour through the trees and add unfamiliar calls to the surrounding sounds.



Tuskers Bush Camp is located in a vast private concession on the eastern border of the Moremi Game Reserve, and sightings like these are plentiful and entirely exclusive.

Tuskers offers highly sought after game drives in the Kalahari acacia bushveld that flourishes in parts of the concession. Explore the bush and encounter wild animals, recognise their tracks and signs, and discover smaller details of the bush. Traditional game drives, as well as night drives, offer up close game viewing experiences with the population of wildlife that moves freely between the concession and the bordering Moremi Game Reserve. Tuskers safari experience includes: Morning and afternoon game drives, as well as night drives in the concession Birdwatching from the camp Sundowners at various waterholes and pans in the concession The option of having a bush dinner set-up under the trees Walk with the San Bushman Experience : This needs to be arranged prior to arrival, and takes the place of the morning game drive. The walk is aimed at introducing guests to the hunter/gatherer lifestyle of the ancients.


Botswana is a year-round destination and ‘when to go’ depends on preference regarding game viewing, landscape and weather.

In September and October, temperatures can soar to the early-40°Cs and it is the driest period, with game keeping close to the remaining water. The rain begins in summer, and runs from November to April and transforms Botswana into a prime birding destination.

For unforgettable big game viewing, the winter months (June, July, August) are the best as the bush is thinner, making visibility better, and water is scarcer, meaning the permanent waterholes and lagoons are alive with wildlife.


The climate in Botswana brings very hot, dry periods and also very wet seasons. Winter (June, July, August) packs cold nights and mild, dry days. Depending on what time of year you travel, you will need certain essentials.

Throughout the year, we recommend packing lightweight, neutral-coloured clothing with short sleeves
Bring sun protection in the form of sunblock, sun hats, and glasses.
Scarfs, jackets and gloves are needed for early mornings on the boat, especially in winter.
Comfortable walking shoes are essential, as is sun protection in the form of hats, sunglasses and sun block.
Bring along cameras, binoculars and recording gadgets to keep a record of the many wildlife sightings.


The classic ambience of this bush camp is a traditional ‘under canvas’ experience and is ecologically respectful. The camp lacks frills and luxuries, and has an emphasis on the closeness to nature, which encapsulates the underlying appeal.

Guests will feel blissfully lost in Botswana’s great wilderness. Expect to be transported to an era of classic safari explorations in the wild wonderland of Botswana, where canvas tents and crackling campfires are key.
The vast area in which Tuskers in located is largely home to elephant, which thrive in the mopane woodland, so always have your eyes open for wandering visitors.


Tuskers Bush Camp is the ultimate bushveld retreat. The old-world safari tents are authentic and simplistic, a design that is replicated in the main area of camp where guests will find a dining area, lounge, bar and fireplace. There is a spacious safari-style dining tent where guests are seated at meal times, while a lounge area with comfortable wicker and canvas furniture and coffee tables is the ideal spot to while away the afternoon. The adjacent freestanding bar is a feature of the camp, also shaded by canvas walls and roof. The classic open-air fire pit is centred between the bar and dining tent, all overlooking a pan frequently visited by roaming game, and offering a perfect view of the sunset on the western horizon.

Out of this world

This place was an absolutely fantastic. As a tour group we were sent here instead of another place that had gotten flooded out. It really was such a total Africa experience as far as the Chalets were secluded and top notch in comfort. The restaurant and bar overlooking a water hole that was consistently visited by large game, even lion. Manager Brooks and staff were incredible, welcoming us with song and cold towels and a cool drink, and taking care of every wish and need. The food was also wonderful, as the game drives in that part of Moremi. Truly cannot say enough on this place and highly recommend it. It was complete magic !


Very lovely Camp

I stayed for three nights here and could not have been more pleased. All the staff were very friendly and nice and the food was extremely good. The waterhole in front of the camp provides never ending things to see and with a nice campfire going in the morning and evening it makes for a wonderful place to relax. The tents are very nice with inside toilets and showers. Very comfortable. We had excellent game viewing each day.

Sheila L ,

I love this place so much!

Beautiful camp and extremely friendly and fun staff. Our guide KT and camp manager Idah were so fun and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and the amenities high end for the price of the camp. I really had an excellent time here. Tons of elephants around the camp and the highlight was the lion sighting as we were leaving the Moremi reserve! I will definitely return.

Alyssa L,

Very restful camp

We stayed for 2nights in a very comfortable tent, more like a hotel room really. The camp is small, but has a nice seating area overlooking the waterhole. Lovely boma in the evenings. The staff are delightful and really happy and helpful and our guide KT was great. It wasn’t very busy when we were there so lacked a little atmosphere , but that did not spoil the experience . The food was excellent and plentiful and they had a well stocked bar. All in all a nice stopover
