Botswana is an independent nation situated in the centre of southern Africa. Most of Botswana comprises dry semi-desert. The most arid and sparsely vegetated part in the south-west is known as the Kalahari desert. The Okavango and Chobe Rivers flow into northern Botswana. These sources of water in an otherwise dry land provide some of the best game-viewing areas in southern Africa.
We can take you on a journey staying in some of the most exclusive permanent tented camps in Botswana. We will visit camps in areas teeming with game, and will explore during the day and at night, perhaps in the Chobe area and near Chief’s Island in the Okavango. We can stay in luxurious hideouts beside the green water channels in other parts of the Okavango, and make the most of the bird life found there and experience traveling by makoro (hollowed dug-out canoe). We can also stay in slightly more rustic camps further out and enjoy the bush experience on foot, or we can enjoy luxury accommodation and discover the Okavango on the back of an African elephant!
June to October is peak season, and places book up early here. We usually plan safaris to Botswana at least a year ahead of time (and often even earlier) in order to book the best places.
