One country safari – Botswana
Botswana is an exceptional safari destination, a rare combination of desert and delta, coupled with staggering amounts of wildlife. If you want a classic safari amid Africa’s iconic animals, with wonderful guiding and lovely accommodation then look no further than this irresistible paradise. Zip between safari areas by light aircraft and it’s easy to combine so many different habitats and landscapes – you’ll be amazed how much variety there is in just one country.
Here are some of the highlights of a one country safari in Botswana:
Safari Activities Galore
Never a dull moment with a greater range of safari activities than almost anywhere else: day and night wildlife drives, guided bush walks, riding safaris, boating, mobile or self-drive safaris, and cultural encounters.
A whopping 38% of land is protected for wildlife and nature conservation. The low impact tourism policy ensures strictly controlled visitor numbers so the safari areas are crowd-free.
Superb Wildlife Viewing
Arguably the best wildlife viewing on the continent, with the likes of Mombo Camp on Chief’s Island in the Okavango Delta renown for exceptional predator and prey activity and Chobe choc-full of enormous elephants.
The Okavango Delta
Beautiful and tranquil – one of the seven natural wonders of Africa – it’s home to an astounding array of birds and wildlife. Gliding through the watery channels is without compare.
A Glorious Range of Camps and Lodges
Terrific accommodation from classic tented camps to out of this world luxury, home to some of the continent’s finest guides.
Great for Families
A wonderful choice for families with specialist children’s guides and several camps offering specific children’s programmes.
Unique Wildlife Interactions
Great for the appeal factor too – who wouldn’t be charmed spending a morning chilling out with habituated meerkats or an afternoon with the elephant herd at Abu’s Camp?
The second largest migration in Africa when in February, around 75,000 zebra and wildebeest flock to the Makgadikgadi grasslands.
Options For Every Budget
Don’t be deceived by the cost. Yes, some camps are deservedly pricey but there are options to suit every budget from an expedition style mobile to a bucket list extravaganza.
