A Botswana safari adventure takes you into a world of diverse and stunning landscapes, from the sandy vastness of the Kalahari Desert to the watery paradise of the Okavango Delta.
It features some of the most wondrous wilderness locations, with the wetlands of the Delta sustaining a huge variety of flora and fauna, and excellent gameviewing throughout the year. Further north, the Chobe and Linyanti reserves are renowned for their predators and large concentrations of game.
The Okavango Delta is a maze of lagoons and waterways covers 15,000 sq kms and is a haven for birds and animals like hippo, crocodiles, elephant, leopard and rare antelope like lechwe and the shy sitatunga.
Continue your Botswana safari north of the Delta into Chobe National Park where lions prowl the Savuti grasslands and some of the largest herds of elephants in Africa can be seen along the Chobe River. Botswana is also renowned for its sophisticated and exclusive eco-lodges and camps, providing comfort and service in the heart of true wilderness. These intimate camps accommodate between 12 and 20 guests, making a Botswana safari an authentic and personalised experience.
