Botswana

From delta to desert, Botswana is all about extremes

Why Botswana?

A safari in Botswana is nothing if not varied. You could explore the lush, green landscapes of the Okavango Delta, Linyanti and Chobe River systems – verdant habitats teaming with major African animals. Or venture into the elemental, other-worldly expanse of the Makgadikgadi Pans and the Kalahari Desert, where the focus is on extraordinary desert adapted specialists.

Strict controls mean that Botswana’s safari camps and lodges are generally small, and there’s an excellent range of  luxury camps and lodges to consider, as well as a number of options to consider if your approach is more “comfort over luxury”.

Top of the list in our opinion (particularly for families after a bit of an adventure) are some of Botswana's mobile safaris. Strike out with a private camp and guide, plus an experienced crew to provide you with excellent food and take care of all the chores. And quietly explore an area far from other tourists over a period of days.

Above all consider the overall balance of your safari. Spend some time being silently poled through the waters of the Delta, but recognise that for the best game viewing you must also visit some of the more arid areas. Immerse yourself in the sensational wildlife and action of Moremi Game Reserve, but offset that with a few days communing with the Meerkats of the Kalahari, or walking with the Bushmen. Botswana rewards those willing to explore.
