Pristine. Abundant. Superlative. Botswana offers a carnival of wildlife spectacles.
A wilderness of savannahs, deserts, wetlands, and salt pans; from the mighty Kalahari to the Okavango Delta – a tectonic trough fed by the Okavango River and dissected by lazy waterways, lagoons, and islands – Botswana has strong game.
Encounter prolific wildlife on a 4x4 safari accompanied by a legendary guide; soar above galloping game by hot air balloon or private aircraft; explore labyrinthine waterways by mokoro dugout canoes; track herds by helicopter or quad; spend a night camping in luxury among the ancient baobabs and granite boulders of ethereal Kubu Island, or in a custom-built treehouse above a watering hole; travel with the ancient San Bushmen, hunting and gathering, before dancing around the fire under the stars; walk fossil river valleys; focus your lens on a pride of black-maned lions; hear the trumpeting procession of elephants in Chobe National Park by day and enchanting local choirs by night.
Where to Stay
Combine the finest luxury private safari lodges with specially set up Hemingway-style luxury camps, both exceptionally serviced.
When to Go
From June to October the waterways are full, the sun is high and the game is rich, but if you don’t mind showers, the land is most verdant from November to April.
