Incredible wildlife spectacles, exclusive safari camps & phenomenal natural beauty

Botswana is one of Africa’s greatest safari destinations, where some of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles take place in some of the most extraordinary landscapes on the planet.

Located in southern Africa, the country is dominated by the desert; and yet Botswana is a land of abundance. Nearly one-fifth of the country is covered by national parks and wildlife reserves, and it remains as one of Africa’s last great wilderness areas, where untamed wildlife roam free through unfenced land.

Botswana is home to all of Africa’s Big Five - lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and the largest concentration of African elephants in the world, which trek their ancient migratory routes each year in massive herds. There are impressive herds of buffalo and zebra, lions swimming across rivers, stealthy cheetahs, lolling hippos, friendly meerkats, thriving packs of African wild dog.

The wildlife is remarkable, while the landscapes are simply like nowhere on earth. The Okavango Delta is a stunning sea on land, where a plethora of animals come to splash and drink from the endless maze of lilly-covered lagoons and gleaming waterways. You can traverse these waters in a mokoro (dugout canoe), keeping your eyes peeled for hippos, crocodiles and colourful birdlife.

From the largest inland delta in the world, you can reach the largest unbroken stretch of sand on earth. The Kalahari Desert is a wondrous land of shimmering white salt pans, dazzling blue lakes, golden grasslands and fossil river valleys marked with ancient Baobab trees.

It’s also home to the indigenous San people, the original inhabitants of southern Africa, known for their deep connection and knowledge of the land.

As a country that is renowned for its exclusive safari experiences, you can soak up all the magic of Botswana without the hordes of tourists. The luxury lodges and camps are unrivalled, set in remote locations with sumptuous touches like private pools, personal butlers, river cruises at sunset, and claw-foot bathtubs under the starry skies.

Best times to visit Botswana

Since Botswana is mostly covered by the expansive Kalahari Desert, the country always feels a little dry and dusty, even in the wet season. Botswana’s cool and dry season is between May and October, while the wet season kicks in from November until April. The best time to visit Botswana depends on what you want to see. The dry summer months make safari’s and game viewing easy wildlife crowd around the few remaining watering holes in the reserves. The dry season is also when the water levels of the Okavango Delta rise, creating incredible boat and canoe-based safari opportunities, and chances to see elephants, hippos and the odd lion enjoying the waters.
