The R&J Collection

Roots & Journeys is a circuit of owner-operated camps, combining the best of what Botswana has to offer – Land, Water and Desert. Each camp in the circuit offers a unique experience.

The company was formed when a group of like-minded people met after a guide’s course in the Tuli Block in Botswana.

Roots & Journeys has only been operating for a few years, but as a team have been involved in Africa for many years, and all have a strong passion for the country, the people, and conservation.

We believe that Botswana is one of the last real wildernesses left in Africa, and feel it our responsibility in assisting to protect it.
