Nestled in the heart of Southern Africa, this captivating land offers a safari experience like no other. From the shimmering waters of Botswana’s Okavango Delta to the vast stretches of the Kalahari Desert, Botswana’s diverse landscapes create a haven for an incredible array of wildlife.
A Botswana safari would only be complete with a trip into the iconic Okavango Delta – specifically, the Moremi National Park at the heart of the Delta. Exploring the Delta’s hidden waterways, an ever-evolving living ecosystem is unforgettable.
Further east, the Linyanti Concession, including the Chobe National Park in northern Botswana, holds some of the most significant elephant populations on the planet. This vast expanse of wilderness offers guests the contrast of wooded savannah safaris to perennial waterways, with abundant wildlife during the drier months. The famous Savuti channel forms a significant boundary into the Linyanti and holds tales of animals that frequent many nature documentaries.
The central area of Botswana, the vast desert of the Central Kalahari, and the salt pans of the Makgadikgadi National Park are definitely for the experiential traveller, seeking more than just a wildlife fiesta. This area is home to Botswana's wandering Khoisan people, the famed black-maned lions and the much-loved meerkats. The centre of Botswana is also home to some of the healthiest remaining populations of cheetah in the region.
Botswana is suitable for family travel and offers great diversity for boating, mekoro, the traditional dugout canoe, walking, and vehicle-based wildlife viewing. Many camps welcome children with open arms and have many activities aimed at your little ones designed to engage them with wildlife, nature, and the environment.

Botswana boasts many remarkable luxury safari properties, ranging from the classic, authentic canvas camps to the uber-luxurious offerings, such as Mombo Camp, Xigera Camp, Duba Plains and the exclusive use Little Mombo Camp.
Mombo and Little Mombo Camps were voted the world's 'Best Hotel Travel + Leisure' in 2013. The destination has also staged many wildlife documentaries, from the David Attenborough, the BBC, and the Jouberts. The most well-known is 'Eye of the Leopard', featuring the famous leopard named Legadima. While Legadima is no longer with us, her progeny are still roaming strong, and almost all Mombo visitors are rewarded with at least one interaction with her family members.
While it is well known for its abundant wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, and unique culture; one of our most frequent questions is; "what is the best time to visit Botswana?" There is no single answer, as it is based upon each traveller's interests and expectations from their journey. However, whatever season you choose, Botswana will surely leave you with unforgettable memories and experiences.
There are daily scheduled flights into both Cape Town and Johannesburg for frequent international connections.
We have had the most amazing adventure and consider the safari component the best holiday we have ever had. You chose the best camps for us as we saw the most brilliant wildlife and met the most wonderful people. The guides were exceptional, as were all the staff, and I feel that your name opened doors for us. Within our first five minutes of being at Seba Camp, a number of staff commented on us having booked through you. They all clearly had a great deal of respect for you and had enjoyed learning from and working with you. I have attached a photo of Pointer and Kelly from Seba who were keen for us to say hi from them. We also met Auke from Chitabe and Graham from Toka Leya. They both send their regards and again were very enthusiastic when they discovered we had booked through you.
