Who are we? James and Katia Haskins founded Khaki and Dust Safaris and have lived and worked in the Okavango for more than a decade.

Realising how difficult it is to pick the perfect lodge over the internet, where each company will push its wares to the fullest, James and Katia set out to hand-pick their favourite Botswana lodges, giving you the benefit of their years of knowledge and experience.

We are 100% citizen owned and fully based in Botswana. Your payment comes here – no offshore account that keeps money out of Africa (where it is most needed). We definitely try to favour lodges with a similar ethos when possible.
