The Best of Botswana

6 nights

SAFARI OVERVIEW

One of Botswana’s main attraction is its vast wilderness. It is home to numerous palm-covered islands in the Okavango Delta and moonscaped saltpans in the Makgadikgadi, making it a great destination for those looking for unfenced, pristine surroundings.

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.

For an authentic Botswana safari experience, the Linyanti Marsh and Khwai River should be at the top of your list. Experience the wonders of these iconic Botswana landmarks on this 6-night journey.

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.
