Discover the Unspoilt Paradise & Culture of Botswana

Roughly the size of France, but with a population of 1.3 million, the culture of Botswana is often described as one of the last unspoiled treasures of Africa. Botswana is a stable country, committed to preserving its natural heritage. One-sixth of its territory is dedicated to permanent, well-managed game sanctuaries. A Botswana safari will take you to the two principal game viewing areas, the Okavango Delta and Chobe.

The Okavango River, one of the main attractions of a Botswana Safari, flows down from Angola into the Kalahari Desert, where it creates the world's largest inland delta. Trapped between deep fault lines and dammed by rising land to the east, the Okavango Delta is an oasis in the desert, a paradise of islands and lagoons, papyrus swamps and reed beds. The best way to see the Okavango is to spend at least two nights in a water-based camp, followed by two nights in a land-based camp.

Chobe National Park is a vast wilderness of forest, river, floodplain and swamp inhabited by a rich variety of game, including some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. The few camps are situated mostly on the northern and western boundaries.

We use light aircraft to link the camps in our Botswana safaris. These memorable trips give you the opportunity to see and understand the complex topography of this pristine wilderness and experience the multiple facets of the unique culture of Botswana.
