Botswana Safari Holidays

Welcome to the spectacular wilderness of Botswana

The wilderness and wildlife areas of Botswana are some of the most expansive and untamed lands in Africa. What a Botswana safari offers in utter abundance is miles and miles of pristine, unspoilt African wilderness. It is a destination best suited to those seeking an in-depth experience of nature, from the smallest insects and most colourful birds to the largest herbivores and most elusive predators.

It is also an incredibly beautiful landscape, especially in the north of the country where great rivers and wetlands collide with the Kalahari Desert ecosystem. The scenery is spectacular, the sunsets simply mesmerising, and there are few places you can venture in Africa that can equal the feeling of remoteness and tranquillity.

Botswana’s premier safari region is the famous Okavango Delta, an incredibly beautiful and game-rich region of waterways, lagoons, floodplains and open woodland. It is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife areas, and a truly magical wilderness to explore, whether by vehicle, horse-back, elephant-back, mokoro, motor-boat or on foot. The north of the country also boasts the Moremi Game Reserve (part of the Okavango), Linyanti region and Chobe National Park, all of which offer superb game viewing and are sustained by the impressive Okavango, Kwando, Linyanti and Chobe rivers. To the south, where these waters rarely reach, the habitat changes into typical Kalahari scrub grassland, a vegetated desert that stretches for eternity, punctuated only by the vast Makgadikgadi salt pans and the occasional village or farming settlement.

Botswana is known as an exclusive and expensive safari destination, which on the whole is true. Unless you are prepared to self-drive and camp (only recommended for experienced Africa travellers), or join a group and camp, it is hard to visit Botswana on a ‘budget’. However, if you are looking to immerse yourself in the natural world, there are few places that can compete.
