Luxury Botswana Safaris
UNFORGETTABLE LUXURY BOTSWANA SAFARI HOLIDAYS
Botswana has long been known as an exclusive safari destination, and so it is not surprising that the destination offers some of the most beautiful and remote luxury safari camps and lodges available in Africa. Often built onto raised platforms and including canvas or gauze to some degree, the top accommodation options in Botswana offer real safari character, matched with wonderful personal service.
However, to fully appreciate a luxury safari in Botswana, you need to also appreciate the incredible natural environments of places such as the Okavango Delta and Makgadikgadi Pans. These areas are simply stunning. Botswana is not therefore a destination to simply come to immerse yourself in luxury. Botswana is somewhere that is worth visiting whether or not luxurious camps and lodges are available. Luckily however, there are many ways to enjoy a luxury Botswana safari!
LUXURY SAFARI LODGES AND CAMPS IN BOTSWANA
Luxury options can be found in all the major safari regions of Botswana, though they are most prolific in the key wildlife area of the Okavango Delta. Wilderness Safaris run a number of superb luxury lodges, including Mombo and Little Mombo which are also known for their spectacular game viewing, while Great Plains Conservation operates the highly exclusive Duba Plains and Sitatunga Private Island. Another absolute top end property is Xigera Safari Lodge, run by hotel group Red Carnation, whilst several other properties offer high end facilities but perhaps not always the service to match. A small step down from their top properties, Wilderness Safaris also have Vumbura Plains which offers a superb all round Okavango Delta experience, with incredible big game in combination with water-based experiences.
In other parts of Botswana, Jack’s Camp is the top ‘Kalahari Desert’ experience, being located on the edge of the amazing Makgadikgadi Pans, while in the Greater Linyanti wilderness area, there are a number of top camps offering superb big game experience. Wilderness Safaris operate DumaTau and Little DumaTau in the Linyanti Concession, and on the adjacent Selinda Concession, Great Plains Conservation operates Selinda Camp and Zarafa.
