Botswana

Untamed Africa at its Best

Untamed Africa at its best

Botswana sits in the centre of Africa, 950-metres above sea level and over 600km from the nearest coastline. It’s arid, flat and three quarters is covered in the sands of the Kalahari.

So how can there be an area of wetland within the desert?

It takes six months for water from the highlands of Angola to trickle down and fill the Okavango Delta. And when it does, it comes alive with birds, frogs and mammals as well as animals only found in watery delta areas, such as the endemic antelope species.


We always suggest including a few camps on your itinerary. That way, you get to try a variety of safaris: land, boat and mokoro (a dugout canoe). You also see the array of animals that call it home. Here, big cats roam free, there are more elephants than in any other country, and there’s everything from aquatic antelope to abundant birdlife. 


You can still visit during the Green Season (it’s often quieter between December and April). But most people choose the drier months of May to October. If you want to travel then, make sure you plan well in advance and can be a bit flexible with dates and routes.


Foreign Office: The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) issues travel advice on destinations, which includes information on passports, visas, health, safety and security. We urge you to visit their website before deciding to travel.

Our Favourites

Where landscapes range from the Okavango Delta to the Kalahari. Where there are more elephants than any other country. Where lions den and leopards rest in shady spots. And where your canoe can glide along the delta in channels carved by hippos.

And yet, Botswana’s never swamped with tourists. The lodges are small and remote and whether you’re exploring by water or by land, we promise you’re in for a truly exclusive experience.

How

We usually recommend flying into Johannesburg and routing your trip through Maun or Victoria Falls. Good regional flights mean Botswana combine well with Namibia. Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

When

Botswana makes a year round destination. The seasonal floods are usually April – October which is when you are likely to see larger herds of wildlife. Whilst traditionally green season, the months of December – March are really a great time to visit.
