Botswana

  • Graham and Angela from Surrey travelled to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and BotswanaHi Rob, We had a superb holiday, thank you. We’re glad we started with Victoria Falls as were a bit tired at the end of the holiday and the low water did enable is to get a better view. We managed to see leopards for the first time, we witnessed a lion kill and we managed to catch roan, sable, genet, civet and a host of birds too numerous to mention. The guides were excellent at all of the camps and the camp crew / support staff were all good and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was very good in all the camps and the rooms were fine – we wish all tents were as luxurious. Would we go on this type of trip again. Yes. Would we consider using Safari Consultants? Yes.Graham and Angela from Surrey travelled to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and Botswana

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.
