Escorted Tours and Safari Holidays in Botswana

Botswana is one of Africa’s top safari destinations, a wonderfully welcoming and hospitable country defined by two very different landscapes. To the north is the watery wonderland of the Okavango Delta, an extraordinary ecosystem teeming with abundant wildlife. Head south, however, and you will find yourself in a very different environment, the arid expanse of the Kalahari Desert, with unique wildlife of its own and one of the most ancient cultures on earth, that of the famous San bushmen.

Botswana is one of the safest and most stable countries in Africa, and the government has adopted a forward-thinking approach to conservation and tourism, with a low-intensity, high value strategy. Travelling here is not cheap, but you’ll be staying in some of the most luxurious safari accommodation on the continent. What’s more, your animal encounters will be magnified by the almost total lack of human footprint across vast swathes of the Delta, and you really will feel like you’re witnessing life in the wild.

 

Touring Highlights of Botswana

  • The Okavango Delta is one of the most remarkable habitats on the planet, where lions and leopards stalk their prey amongst a spectacular watery landscape. The flooding of the delta peaks in July, resulting in a great migration of animals northwards from the Kalahari Desert.
  • Chobe National Park, in the far north east of Botswana, is known for its elephant herds, some of the largest in the world, as well as lions, antelopes, hippos and Cape buffalo.
  • The Kalahari Desert is famous as the homeland of the San people, or Bushmen, who have maintained their hunter-gatherer lifestyle for thousands of years.
  • The lunar landscape of Makgadikgadi Pans National Park is one of the world’s largest salt flats, and during years of good rainfall the pans flood and fill with wildlife including zebra, wildebeest and flamingos.
  • The pastel-hued rocks of the Tsodilo Hills, in the northwest Kalahari, hold a deep spiritual significance for the San people, and hundreds of prehistoric rock paintings are hidden amongst the hills.
