Botswana is the safari destination in Africa most favored by travel connoisseurs - many of whom return time and again to the magnificent wildlife havens for which Botswana is synonymous.

In Botswana, the wildlife enthusiast can indulge in the real, wild Africa, where extensive territories conserved for nature thrive in pristine habitats. Great herds of game ramble between the Kalahari's red sands and the grand channels of the Okavango, Chobe and Linyanti rivers. The gorgeous countryside and abundant large animals make Botswana, Africa's foremost safari destination. With almost 45% of the country's land set aside for wildlife preservation, animals are able to move and migrate beyond the limits of the national parks, since a network of very large private concession areas have been established and are managed as if they were reserves.

Tremendous safari lodges & camps have been constructed in all the national parks and wilderness areas. Typically these facilities offer excellent accommodation and intimate service: the largest accommodating 24 guests, the smallest just six. Camps range from comfortable to luxury.

The Okavango Delta is the greatest destination for habitat and diversity of wildlife. However the mix of ecosystems that make the Delta so interesting are found all over northern Botswana - so don't limit your trip to just the Okavango. In order to get the best overall experience it is preferable to visit different habitats within this enchanting country.

There are many unique areas to explore on a Botswana safari - with the Okavango Delta being foremost in most people's minds when planning a vacation. Most lodges and camps are situated on or near the waterways, so wildlife viewing in a makoro canoe is generally part of an Okavango safari experience. Moremi reserve forms part of the greater Okavango complex and is the premier spot for large concentrations of wildlife and predators. Chobe in the north - home of vast elephant herds - makes the ideal companion destination to the Okavango, while unique destinations such as the Central Kalahari and Makgadikgadi Pans are ideal for travelers seeking something different and remote, without having to compromise on luxury and facilities.
