Botswana safari travel options offer a wilderness destination in one of the great African success stories. Botswana is completely landlocked but manages to have one of the most spectacular water features in the world – the Okavango Delta! Botswana safari tours also include the largest elephant population in Africa at Chobe National Park and some of the last remaining Bushman in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. There are huge salt pans visible from space at Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pan National Parks, prolific game viewing in the protected Moremi Reserve and rich wildlife and beauty in the Linyanti and Savute Regions. Botswana safari options are offered in a nation that has enjoyed independence since 1966.

OKAVANGO DELTA

Arguably the most well known of Botswana’s attractions, the Okavango Delta is without doubt one of the most beautiful places on earth. Home to all of the Big Five as well as white and black rhinoceros, brown and spotted hyena, a thriving hippo and crocodile population and over 400 species of bird, the Okavango Delta is a wildlife lovers haven. Take a cruise down the Delta in a traditional wooden canoe known as a makoro and experience an encounter with the abundant wildlife the likes of which you never have before. With a range of accommodation to suit all budgets, the Okavango Delta is a must-see on any trip to Botswana. Read More

LINYANTI AND SAVUTI

Situated between the Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta, the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is extremely ecologically diverse. Home to all of the Big Five, the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is also the preferred habitat for the fascinating aquatic sitatunga antelope that submerges underwater when threatened. Camp numbers are small, and lodges are intimate so guests are able to enjoy exclusivity and privacy in luxurious surroundings. After a day of amazing sightings – either by vehicle, boat or on foot - enjoy a delicious meal in the outdoor boma under the blanket of the African sky. Read More

THE KALAHARI

Extending to both Namibia and South Africa, the Kalahari Desert covers an incredible 80% of Botswana’s land area and is a vast expanse of untouched, unspoiled beauty. Home to the indigenous San people, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is of vital importance to Botswana’s national identity. Vast plains and saltpans characterize this region, where the unique black-maned lions hunt the iconic gemsbok and red hartebeest. For tranquility, the Kalahari is unrivalled and guests leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after sleeping beneath star-filled skies completely isolated from the hustles and bustles of everyday life.

THE MAKGADIGADI PANS

A remnant of the ancient and great Central Botswana Lake, the Makgadigadi Salt Pans are one of the largest of their kind in the world. With the dry, cracked clay seemingly devoid of life for most of the year, the rainy season transforms the Makgadigadi Pans into a vast area of lush grass that attracts all manner of bird and animal life. Witness the annual zebra migration firsthand where game viewing is plentiful as the migrating herbivores attract their fair share of predators. The isolation of the pans provides the perfect place for quiet reflection, and the sunsets are undoubtedly amongst the very finest you’ll see. Read More

CHOBE NATIONAL PARK

Chobe National Park, in the northeast of Botswana, is the country’s second largest national park and is blessed with one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. With an elephant population numbering close to 30 000, nowhere else in Africa has more of the iconic animal and you are all but guaranteed some amazing elephant sightings. Chobe is also the scene of the annual zebra migration - a truly moving spectacle to witness - which brings the whole park to life. Nearby to both the Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls, a visit to Chobe National Park works well when combined with the two and is sure to provide a truly memorable safari experience. Read More
