Botswana’s ethos of ‘high cost - low impact’ tourism equates to fewer people in one of the best safari destinations in Africa. Safe, peaceful & democratic, with a Smart Traveller green stamp of approval, it stands as a pillar of the African community, leading the way with visionary politics, sustainability and conservation. These factors, combined with some of the most pristine wilderness and highest game densities in the world, make it the destination of choice for any aspirational safari-goer.
Botswana is a land of contrasts from the vast Kalahari Desert and salt pans of the Makgadikgadi to the rich oasis of the Okavango Delta.
The Delta is a pristine paradise of channels, lagoons and islands teeming with big game, rare species and dazzling birdlife. In stark contrast the Kalahari and the Makgadikgadi salt pans offer magnificent solitude, surreal lunar landscapes, desert adapted wildlife and the opportunity to spend time with the San people - ‘the Bushmen of the Kalahari’. Here you witness the little known migration of wildebeest and zebra, quad bike across the endless pans and get up close and personal with meerkats.
Further to the north enormous herds of elephant can be found in the Chobe National Park and the Moremi and Linyanti Reserves abound with predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah and Painted Hunting Dogs.
