Botswana holidays 2020 & 2021
One of Africa’s premier safari destinations, Botswana presents you with exceptional wildlife viewing in its varied parks and reserves. Large herds of elephant and buffalo gather in Chobe National Park, while hippo, crocodiles and many bird species take advantage of the Okavango Delta’s labyrinthine waterways and lagoons. Farther south, the open plains of the Central Kalahari are dotted with zebra and antelope, which in turn attract predators like black-maned lion, wild dog and cheetah. Having enjoyed safaris all over the country, our specialists can plan your safari in Botswana based on your interests.
Botswana offers options for both rustic tented safaris that immerse you in remote areas of the bush, and plush lodge stays where you can retire to your furnished room between game drives. Guided walking safaris and mokoro (traditional canoe) trips give you a fresh perspective of the bush.
