Beautiful Botswana

Where to go - delta & desert, rivers & forests

Okavango Delta The world's largest inland delta - so vast it can be seen from outer space. The waters of the deep blue Okavango River spread out into a fan of blues, silvers, greens, pinks, and golds, before disappearing forever into the sands of the Kalahari desert. Traveling in a Mokoro is unique to the Delta. See our Safari Experiences page.

Kalahari Desert - Makgadikgadi & Nxai Salt Pans Representing the remnants of ancient inland rivers and seas, and home to the last remaining San Bushmen, this dry savannah covers most of Bostwana. The pans are seemingly endless seas of white, where the silence is deafening and you feel as if you can touch the stars. Take a light, eco-friendlier quad bike far out into the pans - a great thrill! Sleep out under the stars! Take a walk with San Bushmen and visit to a Meerkat colony - highlights of a trip into the Kalahari.

Chobe Game Park Home to the world's largest population of elephants, this huge Park has the Chobe River meandering slowly over its wide flood plain before it joins the mighty Zambezi and tumbles over the Victoria Falls. Take a mobile safari, enjoy game drives or safari aboard a luxurious houseboat. See our Safari Experiences page.

Tuli Game Reserve Tucked away in the South East, between the Shashe and Limpopo Rivers, this secret area is rich in game and history. Thisis where the settler Pioneer Column first crossed over into the land of the Matabele, over a century ago.

What to see - elephants, meerkats and so much more

Botswana has one of the largest game populations in Southern Africa, including the world's largest population of elephants. Specialities include aquatic antelope, such as the Red Lechwe and the rare Sitatunga, endangered Brown Hyenas, and the endearing Meerkats. Botswana has the second largest Zebra migration, after Kenya, and thousands of Zebra on the move are a sight to behold.

Where to stay - under canvas or thatch, on the earth or water

We can offer a fine selection of lodges, camps and houseboats - all personally visited by us. They are chosen for superb settings, authentic African design, interesting activities, excellent guides and a high standard of food and accommodation. All provide something different and special. We can also arrange exciting stays in mobile camps where you get even closer to the 'Out of Africa' feeling - always in comfort, safety and style. Contact us to define your perfect safari.

How to get there - road and air

Fly in from Victoria Falls to Kasane, or from Johannesburg to Maun. From there take a scheduled or chartered light aircraft to your camp. The transfers from camp to camp are experiences in themselves- we prefer to call them 'winged safaris'. You fly over spectacular desert and delta scenery, getting a completely different perspective, and you often see wildlife. We take care of all the arrangements.

Drive in yourself, if you prefer and have the time. The main roads in Botswana are of a drivable standard, but many others require 4x4 vehicles, distances are long, and you need to know where you are going. Most times there are no roads to the best camps and you will have to fly in from an airstrip accessible by road.
