Botswana’s status as one of Africa’s most unique safari destinations is largely due to the phenomenon of the Okavango Delta; a vast inland river delta that floods each year, creating expanses of grassland teeming with wildlife.
A typical Delta experience will include staying a blend of game viewing and activity on both land and water. In addition to game drives there are extensive opportunities for walking and exploring the channels and waterways by mokoro or canoe.
The Okavango Delta is by no means the only place to enjoy a safari in Botswana. Chobe National Park is huge and home to an incredible variety of wildlife, which can be viewed on land or by taking a boat trip on the Chobe river.
Further south the country becomes more arid and visitors to parks such as Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park or the Central Kalahari Game Reserve are treated to spectacular landscapes.
Botswana has international airports at Gabarone, Maun and Kasane.
Here are just a few suggestions, based on safaris that have worked well for past clients. They are not set in stone and can be easily amended to suit your requirements; changing lodges or duration. Or we can just start with a clean sheet pf paper.
Why not get in touch to discuss your ideas with us, there’s nothing we enjoy more than talking about Africa.
Then we can get to work on designing a very special safari just for you.
