One of Africa’s last pristine lands - from the watery paradise of the Okavango Delta, to the shimmering white saltpans of the Makgadikgadi.
Botswana is one of Africa’s last pristine lands and offers its visitors beautiful scenery and prolific big game in equal measure. From the watery paradise of the Okavango Delta, to the majestic baobab trees of the Kalahari, it is a gem.
Most people know of the Okavango Delta. Yet Botswana conjures up so many memorable images for those lucky enough to visit. The shimmering heat rising from the vast white salt pans of the Makgadikgadi. And the flight of a fish eagle as it glides over the waterways of the delta. Or perhaps the elephant family coming down to the Chobe River to drink at dusk?
You can spend your entire safari in Botswana. Or you add a few nights on safari in Botswana on to a visit to South Africa.
Botswana is never a cheap destination. However it’s never disappointing either. Plus it’s good to remember that a Botswana safari is all-inclusive with meals, activities, laundry and most drinks included. So there are no hidden extras.
Generally speaking, there are two main ways to safari in Botswana. The vast majority of our clients opt for a fly-in safari. You choose which areas you want to visit, which camps and for how long. But the alternative is to take a mobile safari. This is a particularly evocative way of enjoying the delta and the deserts of Botswana. We go into more detail of what to expect in our section on Mobile Camping in Botswana. This can be either private or joined a small group.
We offer the full range of lodges in Botswana from moderate to top of the range. And we are completely independent. So we’re not locked into using one particular safari camp operator.
