Safari in Kafue National Park

Botswana is the ultimate safari destination, and one of the first countries associated with memorable journeys into pristine wilderness. Its crown jewel, the Okavango Delta, is definitely one for the Bucket List. This extraordinary series of waterways fanning through a parched inland area before trickling to nothing in the sands of the Kalahari. The impact of this life-giving oasis on the wildlife is remarkable. Botswana is a wildlife destination and a two-week safari will enable visitors truly to immerse themselves in the incredible variety of eco-systems across the country. With an astonishing range of camps from luxury lodges, to rustic tented camps, Botswana never fails to impress.

Moremi Game Reserve Safari

Botswana is arguably the best wildlife destination on the African continent, if not, the world! With roughly 70% of the country dedicated to national parks and protected conservation areas, it is no secret why this might be the case. Botswana’s dedication to conservation and harmonious living between the people and wildlife has made it a wildlife destination second to none.
From the massive water systems of the Okavango Delta and the Chobe river in the north of the country, teeming with life all year round, to the vast emptiness of the Makgadikgadi salt pans and Kalahari desert in the south, where animals have adapted to the harsh conditions, Botswana has it all!
