Botswana

A wildlife and wilderness Mecca.

Botswana is the ultimate safari destination, and one of the first countries associated with memorable, exhilarating journeys into pristine wilderness.

Its crown jewel, the Okavango Delta, is definitely one for the Bucket List. An ecosystem like no other, this extraordinary series of waterways stems from a major river, fanning through a parched inland area before trickling to nothing in the sands of the Kalahari.

The impact of this life-giving oasis on the wildlife of this area is remarkable. Botswana is essentially a game-viewing destination and a two-week safari will enable visitors truly to immerse themselves in the incredible variety of eco-systems across the country.

With an astonishing range of camps from jaw-dropping, luxury lodges, to beautifully rustic tented camps, both mobile and fixed, Botswana never fails to live up to its impressive reputation.

The magic of Botswana

It is the higher-end destination for safari, but if you are seeking abundant wildlife, with high concentrations of predators, in areas of extremely low human impact, then Botswana is the place to go. Northeast of the Delta, in the Savuti and Chobe area, the elephant populations are the densest in Africa, (during the Southern Hemisphere winter).

As you traverse the floodplains of the Delta, or race after wild dogs hunting along the Linyanti river, you are not competing for space with large numbers of vehicles, and the photographic opportunities are truly breath-taking.

With a population of only 2 million spread across such a vast country, there is plenty of land to go around for both people and wildlife. Parks and reserves have been established for the protection of the wildlife. Here, in the wilderness of Botswana, this level of remoteness elevates your experience: your adventure here will feel like a unique privilege.
