Botswana

Botswana is one of the few truly unspoiled wilderness areas in Africa. There are vast game reserves where some of the largest herds in Southern Africa roam free, together with some of the most spectacular and diverse bird life.

The tropical climate ensures sunshine, blue skies and cooling breezes. Botswana is a land-locked country where you can encounter the desert sands of the Kalahari and the lush Eden of the Okavango Delta. Explore the waterways of the Okavango Delta which is the largest inland delta in the world; the seemingly endless, white salt pans and the grasslands of the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans; the Kalahari Desert with its sparse vegetation and orange sand, and the dense bush and broad floodplains of Chobe National Park which is home to the largest concentration of elephants in Africa. Elephant, buffalo, red lechwe, lion and cheetah occur in large numbers and Botswana boasts the largest remaining population of the endangered African Wild Dog. The warm, friendly people of Botswana welcome you to explore their wonderful country.

Highlights of Botswana include:

The Okavango Delta and Moremi National Park: The waterways of the Okavango Delta are the heartbeat of this haven of wildlife. Guests can enjoy day and night game drives, walking safaris, boating and Mokoro Safaris. Enormous private concessions offer exclusive, private havens for the traveller to languish in the peaceful beauty of the African wilderness, shared only with an incredible diversity and concentration of wildlife. Home to the legendary Chiefs Island, the Moremi National Park is pristine African wilderness at its finest.

Linyanti: The Linyanti Reserve and Selinda Spillway offer a truly authentic safari experience. The Linyanti marshes are the only source of water in the dry months and therefore boast huge herds of elephant and buffalo, alongside extraordinary numbers of predator species. Birding safaris are spectacular all year round.

Chobe National Park and Chobe River: The aptly named “Land of Giants” is home to the largest concentration of elephants in Africa. African elephant herds often number in the hundreds are a sight to behold. Equally large numbers of buffalo can also be seen, along with fantastic sightings of lion and leopard. The Chobe River offers a wonderful opportunity to view and photograph the wildlife and birdlife up close. Photographic Safaris with experienced photographers in Chobe National Park offer a fantastic opportunity to hone your wildlife photography skills.

Makgadikgadi National Park and Nxai Pans: The Nxai Pans are the largest collection of salt pans on earth. The expansive grassland plains are home to seasonal migrating herds of wildebeest and zebra. The local San Bushmen play host to traditional cultural experiences and offer an insight into their nomadic way of life. Meerkats entertain guests with their inquisitive and fun-loving antics.

Kalahari Desert and Central Kalahari Game Reserve: The massive Kalahari Desert covers the south western area of this beautiful country. The wild, mysterious beauty of this reserve is indescribable, with the endless, untouched vistas. The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is home to the black-maned lion, pangolin, bat-eared fox and honeybadger as well as a variety of herbivores. Star-gazing opportunities are extraordinary; endless vistas and minimal light pollution are the perfect setting to explore the African night skies.

While Botswana is not the least-expensive destination in Africa, it offers excellent value for money. Staggering concentrations of wildlife in pristine wilderness settings are treasured by the Botswana government, who offer a politically stable and safe opportunity to share these beauties. Botswana is the perfect destination for family safaris as well as honeymoons, with lodges catering for each guest’s particular requirements.

We recommend a combination of lodges in the Okavango Delta and Moremi National Park with lodges in The Chobe National Park or a houseboat on the Chobe River. An add-on to the Makgadikgadi Pans or Central Kalahari Game Reserve will add an extra dimension to your African Safari experience, while the nearby Victoria Falls and sand dunes of the Namib Desert are perfectly located to ensure the ultimate African dream holiday.
