WHO WE ARE • HEAD OFFICE TEAM

BEHIND THE SCENES IS WHERE THE BUSH WAYS MAGIC HAPPENS

A dedicated team of reservations consultants.
Office-based logistics and operations team to prepare and organise each safari.
2,000m2 head office with workshop, storage rooms, offices, and all required equipment, spare parts, fresh and dry supplies.
24/7 assistance.

One of our main strengths is to have built over the years the strongest mobile safari set-up and support centre in the region. 

On 2,000 square meters located at the entrance of Maun, we have elaborated the most efficient and quality-driven base from which we receive your bookings, then plan, prepare and organise your safari from A to Z (and usually beyond). 

Reservations, sales, marketing and accounts offices; operations teams organising the entire logistics of your safari so that we have everything under control pre – during – post safari to ensure the smoothest operations in the field and the most enjoyable journey for all our guests.

A fully-kitted professional workshop supervised by a Technical Operations manager and his team of mechanics building, fixing, maintaining all our vehicles and hardware (we even have our own in-house tailor!).

Why Bush Ways I have worked for several different companies over the last 20 years, and I recognized Bush Ways long back for being the company that matched my way of thinking: get out there, enjoy the wilderness, be part of it, don’t just observe it, and live that experience with the people of Botswana.

Favourite location Moremi/Khwai area – the combination of beautiful trees, crystal clear water, and the huge variety of animals living there capture the essence of Botswana.
