  • We have complete satisfaction with Safari Consultants and Jane, our trip organiser. From our first enquiries about a possible safari to Africa we received, both by telephone and email, a wealth of detailed information and suggestions to suit both our capabilities and our pockets. The whole trip was organised with an attention to detail that was meticulous and unerringly accurate. All our accommodation proved excellent, routes were clearly marked and sensible journey times were suggested. It was obvious that we were dealing with someone who had extensive personal experience of travel in the whole area and was prepared to go to considerable lengths to ensure that we had a wonderful and safe trip. Many thanks to you Jane for all your hard work on our behalf and for your never-failing courtesy and pleasant manner. You’re more than just a travel consultant to us and we would recommend both you and Safari Consultants, without reservation.

Regions

By way of introduction to the regions of Botswana, we first want to dwell on the Kalahari Basin, which contrary to being a specific area, is in fact the largest continuous stretch of sand in the world, from South Africa in the south to the Congo in the north. Thus it can be said that all the regions specified below fall within this greater ecosystem, and could all be called ‘the Kalahari’! However, the influence of various great waterways has allowed many of these regions to develop so that they no longer offer typical Kalahari conditions.
