Botswana Safari Holidays

Enter a wild and prosperous country that makes the right decisions for the right reasons - Botswana has set aside the highest percentage of land for conservation in the world. Most of Botswana’s population lives in the south and east leaving vast areas of unspoilt wild spac6es absolutely empty and undisturbed, except for the animals that have lived there since time began.

On an African safari in Botswana, visit the famous areas to the north for masses of game – the Okavango Delta which sparkles like an emerald in the heart of the arid Kalahari, Linyanti and Chobe National Park.

By fabulous contrast to the watery north, the south is largely desert. Experience the vast emptiness of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, the remains of one of the world’s largest super lakes and witness the unchanging habits of the Kalahari San bushmen and their unique environmentally sustainable way of life which has allowed them to survive the challenges of living in the Kalahari for millennia. After the rains have arrived, this area bursts into life and sees the second largest zebra and wildebeest migration in the world. 

Getting around Botswana is largely done by scheduled light aircraft which is as convenient as it is easy so combining a few areas of the country on one safari holiday is not only possible, but highly recommended.
