Luxury Botswana Safaris

Luxury Botswana safaris allow the visitor to enter a wild and prosperous country that makes the right decisions for the right reasons. A country of good governance, that has set aside the highest percentage of land for conservation in the world. Most of the population lives in the south and east, leaving vast areas of unspoilt wild spaces absolutely empty and undisturbed, except for the animals that have lived there since time began. These are not tamed areas, rehabilitated by the reintroduction of wildlife, but areas where the wild things have never left.

On an African safari in Botswana travellers find the Okavango Delta one of the most fertile and abundant places on earth, which sparkles like an emerald in the heart of the dry and arid Kalahari. The Kalahari Desert is so incredibly dry that for approximately nine months of the year all true desert creatures have to rely on their creativity and cunning to survive. For the remaining months it becomes a land of plenty and the natural world comes to life.

For most social African safari animals, when the chips are down and the environment is the greatest enemy, the only chance of survival is to help one another. This works for the meerkats of the great Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, a large, awe-inspiring expanse of white nothingness. The unchanging habits of the Kalahari San bushmen and their unique spirit of reciprocal altruis.....

This works for the meerkats of the great Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, a large, awe-inspiring expanse of white nothingness. The unchanging habits of the Kalahari San bushmen and their unique spirit of reciprocal altruism and a truly environmentally sustainable way of life is what has allowed them to survive the challenges of living in the Kalahari for millennia.

When taking a luxury African safari in Botswana what becomes apparent is its diversity, from the delta and desert, to the large flat Chobe River meandering through the place where four countries meet. It is a country that can offer more than just safari tours to see amazing wildlife, it can also offer culture, not only that of the local people of Botswana, but also that of the first ever people, the bushmen. It is a country that can offer solutions and inspiration.
