Botswana Safaris & Holidays

You’ll be swept away by the wild, unspoilt landscapes of Botswana. Filled with thriving riverbanks, salt pans and grassland, not to mention the largest population of elephants in Africa, a safari holiday in Botswana will be an unforgettable experience.

Explore the many game reserves and national parks including Chobe National Park, famed for its growing herds of elephants. Take a safari along the Chobe River, a wide eco-system filled with hippos, crocodiles and birds. Further in land is the huge Central Kalahari Game Reserve, and a desert spanning over 20,000 square miles.

Discover the Okavango Delta in the comfort of a traditional canoe (Mokoro) guided by local bushman. Glide quietly through the reeds to explore an untouched landscape filled with birds, hippos and elephants. Hike the Tsodilo Hills to witness the vast rock formations split across three hills. Believed by the local San people to be the resting places of their ancestors, the rocks also feature ancient painting of local tribes from thousands of years ago.

Another breath-taking landscape is the Makgadikgadi Pans, once a huge lake it now remains a salt pan amid a dry savanna. Tour the rural scenery, home to many wild animals including a large population of lions. A safari experience not easy to be forgotten!

I adore Africa and have lived and worked in South Africa as well as travelling across the wider region. Spotting a leopard during a night safari at Namibia Private Game Reserve is definitely an experience I'll remember forever.
