Botswana

Botswana

Botswana is a high-end safari destination that is known for offering excellent luxury experiences. Botswana generally seeks to keep tourism numbers lower with a clear focus on conservation and preservation. 

Botswana is home to the Okavango Delta which is made up of marshlands and seasonally flooded plains, and is one of the few delta systems in the world that is totally cut off from any ocean. The wildlife viewing here is exceptional, and safari by dugout canoe (mokoro) is a truly peaceful and relaxing African experience. The Moremi Game Reserve occupies the east and central areas of the region, making it a popular destination for visitors.

There are many beautiful lodges on offer in Botswana. However, we regularly recommend mobile safaris to our clients, as they offer a good value option to stay under the stars in basic en-suite tents, right in some of the countries most beautiful areas.

When is the best time of the year to visit?

Botswana is best visited in May through September as there is likely to be blue skies and limited rain during this period. It is also the best time to spot animals as the lands are dry so the animals tend to congregate towards the limited water areas. It can get very cool in the evenings, so it is important to pack layers when visiting in high season. Whilst it is possible to visit at other times of the year, not all camps are accessible and the delta areas will be flooded. There is also extreme heat, particularly in the north and in the kalahari regions between Novembers and February, meaning these months are definitely not for everyone!
