About Letaka Safaris

Birdingsafaris.com is owned and operated by Letaka Safaris which is based in the Okavango Delta region of Botswana. The company was co-founded by Brent & Grant Reed who are known locally as the Letaka brothers. The word Letaka is derived from the Setswana word ‘letlhaka’ which describes the tall reeds which grow througout the Okavango Delta, because both brothers are tall and slender and live in the delta, the name stuck. Letaka Safaris was started with a view to fill the need for a safari company with dedicated birding guides who are not just guides who know about birds but people that are passionate about birding and natural history in general.

Today Letaka Safaris is the foremost birding safari company in Botswana and a leading birding safari operator in Southern Africa. Letaka is the only company in Botswana to offer regular scheduled birding departures within Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mocambique.
