Botswana is the ultimate African safari destination renowned for exceptional game viewing and incredible wilderness and some of the most lauded and sought-after camps and lodges in the world.

The Call of the Wild

Defined by two legendary natural wonders – the Kalahari Desert and the Okavango Delta. A land of abundance with ancient fossilised river valleys and gently undulating arid grasslands in the Kalahari, and lush, verdant waterways fed by seasonal floodwaters that empty into its vast Okavango basin. A champion of sustainable tourism with a culture of inclusivity underpinned by a low-impact high-value conservation model that includes communities in the management of sensitive environments and eco-tourism operations. 

Botswana safaris are not just journeys through the wilderness; they are encounters with nature’s grandeur. In these untamed realms, the circle of life unfolds and every heartbeat resonates with the pulse of the wild. Unrivalled for its big cats, African wild dogs, and significant elephant population.  Its culture is as ancient as the Kalahari – this is one of the ancestral homes of Africa’s First People – the San, or ‘bushmen’, whose bush skills and knowledge are unsurpassed.

At a Glance

Unrivalled Wildlife

A Botswana safari brings the country’s diverse ecosystems to life. From the sprawling Central Kalahari with its endless golden grasslands and occasional watering holes where antelope gather, to the remote Linyanti and Selinda teeming with wildlife, graceful giraffes, leopards that gracefully climb ancient trees, and lions on the roam. The northern Chobe region is steered by the ebb and flow of the Chobe River, Here, vast herds of elephants congregate along the riverbanks, drinking, wading and crossing. The Okavango Delta brings a mosaic of winding channels and lush islands. Traditional safari activities are accompanied by the added thrill of water-based activities.

Experience Botswana

Traditional safari activities are accompanied by the added thrill of exploring Botswana’s waterways, channels and spillways by boat or mokoro – a traditional dug-out canoe which is poled by a canoe guide. Boat-based activities are dependent on the annual floods of the rivers that feed into this inland wetland. These floods travel for weeks, eventually arriving in the small town of Maun at the southern tip of the Delta. Maun is the hub for all Okavango and northern safaris, along with Kasane which gives access to Chobe. 


Land of Abundance

The country is famous for the Okavango Delta, a unique inland delta that attracts visitors with its picturesque waterways and abundant wildlife, including elephants, lions, and hippos. Botswana is also home to the Chobe National Park, known for its large elephant herds, and the Kalahari Desert, offering a captivating desert experience. Additionally, the country’s commitment to wildlife conservation and sustainable tourism has made it a prime destination for eco-tourism, further enhancing its reputation as a haven for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts.

Okavango Delta

Botswana’s Okavango Delta is one of the continent's prime wildlife destinations and covers around 15,000 square kilometres. Fed by seasonal rivers that form these incredible, vast wetlands, it is one of the most bio-diverse places in the world, with enormous concentrations of endemic wildlife best viewed from traditional mokoro canoes and bush walks.

Chobe National Park

Chobe National Park takes its name from the impressive Chobe River which meanders through occasional low-lying islands and floating mats of papyrus and reeds so popular with game. Found in northern Botswana and the country’s oldest game reserve, it is known for the large herds of elephants and Cape buffalo, which converge here to quench their thirst.

Savuti National Park

The untamed beauty of Savute National Park offers an authentic African safari experience with sprawling savannahs leading to the enigmatic Savute Channel, an ever-changing watercourse that flows and dries up intermittently, transforming the landscape, with its moods and attracting a wealth of wildlife during the dry season.
