Botswana has rapidly become one of the most popular destinations in Africa over the last couple of years, and it’s not hard to see why. The landlocked Southern African country enjoys sunny weather throughout the year and boasts an abundance of unique ecological regions, which entice and delight both locals and tourists alike. A stable democracy coupled with the warm, welcoming attitude of Botswana’s people means international guests feel immediately ‘at home’.
Whether you take in the pristine marshy ecosystem of the Okavango Delta and the Chobe River, or the dry conditions of the Makgadigadi Salt Pans and Kalahari Desert, you’ll find yourself in awe of the untouched beauty that a Botswana safari offers. The Botswana Government has implemented a sustainable tourism model whereby the camps – ranging from comfortable to luxurious – are low impact and built to blend in to their environment. There are also fewer camps than in other countries, and they are more expensive. As a result, visitors feel as if they have the unspoilt paradise completely to themselves.
With access mainly by light aircraft, the camps of Botswana have not been spoilt by extensive road networks. A wide range of animal and bird species reside in the water based environment of the Okavango Delta, the savannah and the grasslands whilst Botswana is also home to semi desert fauna and flora – making it a veritable garden of eden. Local guides and trackers were born in the bush and have an innate understanding of it as a result – highly experienced in their craft, they’ll impart local knowledge and customs while ensuring your Botswana safari game viewing experience is second to none.
Visit beautiful Botswana for the trip of a lifetime!
