Botswana

Unfenced. Untamed. Unspoilt. The raw beauty of Botswana stretches beyond its vast areas of swamps, boundless wildlife and wilderness. As Africa’s premium Safari destination, the landscape ranges from acacia woodlands, mopani trees, camel-coloured deserts, powerful waterways and palm-dotted islands, not to mention its magical sunsets.  

 

With conservation held as an important national priority, almost 40% of the country comprises of national parks and reserves, private concessions and Wildlife management areas. From the occasional flooded areas and dry land, the Okavango Delta is one of the largest, most intricate and unpredictable wetlands in the world.

 

From mobile safaris to exclusivity in luxury tented accommodation, there is something for every type of traveller. From observing wildlife through hides, quietly gliding rivers on a mokoro to listening to the myriad of birdlife the areas offers. Your senses will be overwhelmed by the lushness of the land.  Discover the wonder of the wilderness, explore Botswana!

WHEN TO GO

The winter months from May to the end of August are undoubtedly the best time to visit Botswana.

During winter, days are warm without being too hot and nights tend to get chilly.

The dry season, from July onwards is the best time of year to go for big game viewing, as huge herds congregate around the water and greener areas.

July-October is also when the Okavango Delta is in peak flood.

The summer months (November to end March) can be hot and humid. This is Botswana’s “Green Season” and offers some of the best birding opportunities.

Accommodation prices in the low and shoulder seasons are lower and often single supplements are waivered.
