Travel to Botswana for a safari and discover a world of diverse and stunning landscapes, from the sandy vastness of the Kalahari Desert to the watery paradise of the Okavango Delta.
Botswana is an incredible place for a Safari, featuring 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. It is also one of the best places to see African Wild Dog.
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.

These intimate camps accommodate between 12 and 20 guests, making a Botswana safari an authentic and personalised experience. Many of these luxury camps feature private plunge pools, massage parlours and even small gyms! Many camps also feature family friendly accommodation and engaging kids clubs making Botswana one of the best countries to visit as a family.
