Botswana is renowned in Africa for its pristine wilderness areas and epic wildlife encounters. Landlocked, mostly unspoiled, and with one of the lowest population densities in Africa, Botswana is home to breathtaking landscapes and extraordinary wildlife. Careful management of the vast tracts of protected wilderness resulted in pristine habitat and dense wildlife populations. These provide the visitor with a truly authentic wilderness experience and wildlife viewing that is second to none!

The country’s primary tourist draw card is undoubtedly the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world. This natural wonder provides a tranquil haven for an abundance of African wildlife to thrive. Other highlights include the vast red expanse of the Kalahari Desert and its wide landscapes, as well as the world’s largest salt pan, the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, offering an uncanny experience, where visitors are privy to massive zebra migrations during the flood season; the Savuti plains, which host huge elephant herds and large prides of lions; and the Tsodilo Hills, where 4500 rock paintings form a unique record of human settlement over many millennia.

Experiences with Bushmen hunter-gatherers and their simple, inclusive culture will give you a fascinating and fresh perspective on your own life. Also, all the big players—antelope, large game and predators—are to be seen in Botswana, as are adorable Meerkats, exceptional birdlife, lesser-viewed Wild Dogs, and Lechwe.

The reserves and private concessions are large and remote, with only a few Safari operators spread across this vast land. This allows for exclusive wildlife experiences and secluded accommodation. Be it a mobile camp on a remote Okavango island or a luxury lodge, safari accommodations in Botswana are unique and have been designed to complement the natural surroundings. Botswana’s safari lodges are considered among the best on the continent.
