Why Botswana

Botswana as a destination offers some of the most stunning landscapes, along with magnificent sunsets and amazing stargazing. It delivers unmatched safari experiences, from the thriving waterways of the Okavango Delta, to the Kalahari Desert’s ancient baobabs and meerkats, and the Chobe National Park, where the elephant reigns supreme.

Botswana is considered by many to be the benchmark when it comes to sustainable ecotourism practice in Africa. Fly from camp to camp to take in the delta’s diverse eco systems – wet and marshy delta that then empties into a desert full of wildlife. Explore the waterways with your expert rangers via slow motorboat or being poled in a traditional mokoro (canoe) spotting hippos, crocodiles and a myriad of birds.

Quick Info

Accommodations: Botswana offers a variety of accommodation options from mobile camping safaris to lodges and tented camps. Property size and occupancies are tightly controlled (usually not more than 24 guests at a time); some Chobe properties are larger.

Gameviewing: Open vehicle game drives, walking, canoe and boating safaris are all possible.

Getting Around: Light aircraft transport between camps is a necessity. Self-driving not recommended.

Other Attractions: The Makgadikgadi basin offers a contrasting desert experience and habituated meerkats, lunar landscapes and authentic Bushmen interaction.
