Botswana is without a doubt the crown jewel of all noble safari destinations. Experience the great lions of the Kalahari Desert and the elephants of the Okavango Delta.
Join in the hospitable and beautiful Botswana. Here, safari experiences await you in magnificent and varied landscapes. Botswana is a paradise for nature lovers and probably has Africa's largest remaining stock of savannah.
The country offers contrasts from the Kalahari Desert, covering one third of Botswana's land area, to the world's largest inland delta, the Okavango Delta. Every year, water from the highlands of Angola flows over the Kalahari Desert and creates a tropical delta. This is where one finds the greatest concentrations of animals; great herds of elephant and buffalo, lions, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards, wild dogs and antelopes - to name a few. Experiencing Botswana's varied wildlife in mokorobo (hollow tree trunk) in the beautiful delta is unique.
The country is named after its largest ethnic group, the tswana. Most speak good English. The country was liberated in 1966 and has a stable democratic regime.
Botswana is one of the finest safari destinations in Africa. Large areas are allocated to national parks, and the number of visitors is limited to protect the environment. This allows you to experience an untouched and undisturbed wilderness. The lodges we use are of a high standard and hold a profile that protects both the environment and the people who live there. The most famous destinations are the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park.
