Botswana Safari Guide

Botswana is world-famous for its high quality safari holidays. It is a fairly expensive destination compared to some of its African neighbours, but the facilities and game-viewing opportunities are exceptional.

Many of Botswanas camps and lodges are in remote locations, ensuring that for the duration of your stay you will see very few other people. They are small and intimate, often with luxury facilities and excellent services. They cover a wide diversity of terrain, meaning that you can move camp to camp after a few days and enjoy different landscapes and their flora and fauna.

The most famous safari destination in Botswana is the Okavango Delta. This is formed by the Okavango River which rises in the Angolan heights before running east into Botswana. Here it is trapped, making the waters spill out into a vast network of lagoons and rivers, and making it the largest river in the world to not reach th sea. In this untouched wonderland you can enjoy nature up close and unspoilt.

Elephant-Back safaris - Botswana is one of the very few countries to offer safaris by elephant back. As elephants are accepted by most other animals it is a peaceful and unique way to get up close to the wild animals and have a unique safari experience.

Horseback Safaris - The experienced rider can enjoy a stay in Botswana, exploring the wide-open spaces in the company of an experienced guide. You see plenty of game, including many big game animals, and have a unique riding experience, often swimming rivers with your mount.
