Botswana is one of Africa’s finest safari holiday destinations.
It’s located in Southern Africa and easily accessible from Johannesburg where loads of international airlines land. There is only a handful of flights each day, so depending on when you arrive off your international flight you may not be able to connect same day. Use that first night to get over jet lag and the next day, head up to Botswana for your safari holiday.
Botswana safaris allow you to truly immerse yourself in some of the world’s last remaining paradises abundant with wildlife.
As a country, Botswana certainly flys the eco-warrior flag with wildlife conservation a key priority. There is a high cost low impact strategy that means you may pay a little more for a Botswana safari and the reward is less people so it’s not busy and ‘touristy’ at all. It’s what we call a genuine and authentic safari experience.
When it comes to landscapes, you have everything from the harsh and seemingly endless salt pans like Makgadikgadi, Nxai and Tau Pans to the Kalahari desert. Then the waterway rich and beautiful Okavango Delta and river systems in the Chobe, Linyanti and Selinda. Khwai is a private concession becoming more and more popular and the ever favourite Moremi.
One must not forget the remote and easier to reach from South Africa, yet located in Botswana, Tuli Block.
With amazing game viewing opportunities, cultural experiences and luxurious safari camps and lodges, it’s easy to see the attraction to a Botswana safari. What’s important is knowing the best time to travel, where to stay and what to do. That’s where our specialists come in. On top of that, it’s always good to know safari offers, specials and value adds to get the most out of your holiday budget.
