desert landscapes & inland deltas

A safari in Botswana is unrivalled; the wildlife is like no other, the region is home to some of the best lodges and, the savannahs will feel like they are all yours. The Okavango Delta is a special, uncharted land; Botswana’s mesmerising waterways and reed-lined riverbanks are a melting pot of less-conspicuous wildlife waiting to be discovered under the glistening African sun. Going back to basics, without sacrificing comfort, cruising the Chobe River – primarily by mokoro (canoe) – brings out the very best sights and sounds of Botswana’s uniqueness.

So many parts are unmissable; with unfenced parks and reserves, wildlife thrives here. You’ll find one of the highest concentrations of elephant across the whole of Africa, with buffalo, giraffe and big cats never far out of sight. It’s also a stronghold for the most successful predators – wild dogs. Safaris in Botswana tend to be very private, shared more with animals than people. Its desert landscape, extreme starry skies and inland deltas make for the best of the best and the most memorable experiences.
