Botswana

As our name implies, Botswana is our speciality. With over 1/3 of its land set aside for wildlife and a remarkable diversity of habitats, Botswana is one of Africa’s prime safari destinations.

Botswana is regarded as having some of the finest wildlife viewing in Africa. The diversity of habitats results in a remarkable variety of wildlife – both fauna and flora. Botswana also boasts some incredible landscapes – from the harsh Kalahari and stark Makgadikgadi Pans to the lush Okavango Delta.

Perhaps the most famous of Botswana’s attractions, the Okavango Delta is a natural wonder, spilling out over 15000 sq km into the desert sands. Moremi Game Reserve – on the eastern side of the delta – is one of Africa’s finest wildlife areas. The western delta’s deep lagoons and riverine forests are excellent birding hotspots.
