Things to do in Botswana

Botswana is one of Africa’s premier safari destinations. Among the things to do, the Okavango Delta is an undeniable highlight. One of the best ways to explore its twinkling waters is by mokoro (the local canoe), while in the Central Kalahari you can go in search of the charismatic black-maned lion.

If you’re seeking an authentic and somewhat rustic safari experience, mobile camping is an exhilarating option for your Botswana holiday. Immerse yourself in the true spirit of Africa with experienced guides who set up a temporary camp for you in some of the more remote areas of the country.
