Botswana is well known for having some of the best wildlife on the African continent. With almost 40% of its land area devoted to national parks, reserves, and wildlife management areas, you can travel through many parts of the country with the feeling of moving through an immense nature wonderland.
Here, the sensation of limitless space, rich wildlife and bird viewing, vast night skies filled with brilliant stars, and sunsets of unearthly beauty set the scene for your safari. Glide in a traditional mokoro canoe through the pristine waters of the Okavango Delta, spot black-maned lion in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, walk with the San Bushmen in the otherworldly Makgadikgadi Pans, and marvel at the largest concentrations of elephant in Africa in Chobe National Park. Abundant wildlife, exclusive small camps on remote private reserves, unique activities, and a low human footprint combine to make Botswana one of the most memorable safari destinations in Africa.
A Botswana safari combines well with a visit to Victoria Falls, a safari in Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa, and even Mozambique for some time on the beach.
