Known as the premier safari destination due to the remote nature of the camps and great wildlife. You travel between areas by light aircraft, which is a stunning part of the adventure in itself as you take in the scenery below. Guiding at the camps in Botswana is of a high standard.
Where to go
Central Kalahari Game Reserve – A barren home to plants, wildlife and the ancient San or “Bushmen” clans.
The Linyanti Reserve – Located in northern Botswana and known for its huge concentrations of elephant in the dry season & big game year round.
The Okavango Delta – One of the world’s biggest inland deltas – ranks as one of the world’s top wildlife destinations.
Moremi Wildlife Reserve – Land and delta meet to create a picturesque preserve of floodplains – either seasonally or perennially wet – waterways, lagoons, pools, pans, grasslands, riverine and mopane forests.
Chobe National Park – The Chobe River is most famous for its large herds of elephants and Cape Buffalo which converge upon the river in the dry months.
Makgadikgadi Pans National Park – One of the largest salt pans in the world, this stark, flat terrain stretches it would seem to eternity. During the wet season this reserve offers good wildlife viewing as large herds of zebra and wildebeest migrate to the Boteti region.
When to go
Each season and each region in Botswana has their own nuances so there is not one perfect time to visit. The climate is fairly moderate, averaging around 77˚F, but spikes up to an average of 86˚F between October and April. December to March is Botswana’s Green Season, a spectacular time to be in the Central Kalahari when the desert comes alive with the rains and wildlife viewing is at its peak, with many animals giving birth to their young. June to August is the Dry Season but also when the Okavango Delta is inundated with floodwaters, which makes for very concentrated and prolific wildlife viewing.
