The untouched jewel in Africa’s crown
Botswana is one of those rare places in the world that has the ability to leave an impression to last a lifetime. This is a place where you can wander freely through the endless landscapes, surrounded by exotic wildlife and feel a true connection to the country and its humbling people.
The vast wilderness and changeable terrain in Botswana make it a haven for wildlife and one of Africa’s most sought-after safari destinations. As national parks and private game reserves make up 40% of its fenceless territory, huge herds of game are able to roam freely across the contrasting landscapes. Botswana has the highest population of elephants in Africa, which frequently grace the natural pools of our Botswana safari camps and lodges. Other wildlife you can expect to see whilst staying with us are lions, leopards, cheetahs, caracals, rhinos, hippopotami, crocodiles, giraffes, zebras, primates, bat-eared foxes, wild dogs and antelope – just to name a few.
Botswana is undoubtedly rich in natural beauty; blessed with the golden sands of the Kalahari desert plains, the lunar-like surfaces of the Makgadikgadi Pans and the luscious waterways of the Okavango Delta. With a proud history of wildlife management and a pro-active approach to conservation, these abundant habitats have been thoughtfully nurtured. And coupled with the country’s exceptionally low population density and high proportion of protected areas, you can truly make the most of the unspoiled wilderness while on your safari.
For a truly immersive cultural experience, learn about the nomadic lifestyle of the many tribes in Botswana. With such an incredible connection to the land, the opportunity to meet members of indigenous tribes on one of our community-based initiatives and projects is not to be missed.
