Botswana boasts many world-renown luxury safari properties, ranging from the classic, authentic canvas camps to the uber-luxurious offerings; still, all share the wildlife spectacle this remarkable country has to offer.

This wildlife-rich destination comprises a few iconic safari locations, but none as prominent as the Okavango Delta, a World Heritage Site listed in June 2014.

Botswana safari would not be complete without a trip into the iconic Okavango Delta. More specifically, if possible, the Moremi National Park at the heart of the Delta. Exploring the Delta’s hidden waterways, a living ecosystem that is ever-evolving is unforgettable.

Further east, the Savuti and Linyanti Concession, including the Chobe National Park located in northern Botswana, holds some of the most significant elephant populations on the planet. The Savuti is a vast expanse of wilderness offering 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.

Qorokwe Camp Botswana is a new and contemporary safari camp with excellent wildlife viewing and service on a private concession in Botswana's Okavango Delta.

Situated in their private 64,692-acre concession, Qorokwe overlooks a very active hippo-rich lagoon frequented by Botswana's mass of elephants and African buffalo. The magnificent main area is the focal point of the camp and overlooks a lagoon and its inspiring infinity pool. The dining area, lounge, library and bar have been built on raised wooden platforms connected by walkways.

The camp comprises eight elegant tented suites, with en-suite facilities including indoor and outdoor showers, and a very spacious family unit with its own splash pool.

The diverse habitats of the south-eastern Okavango support a wealth of wildlife, earning the area's well-deserved reputation as a top Botswana safari destination. It owes its productivity to the mix of habitat types between its western and eastern borders: the Santantadibe and Gomoti Channels.

Savuti Camp is a beautifully built safari camp overlooking the Savute Channel, right in the heart of Wilderness Safaris private Linyanti Concession, in northern Botswana.

The channel, a sporadic and unusual watercourse, either flows strongly in the wet years or remains dry altogether, leaving the camp overlooking a rich grassland that attracts wildlife from across the region. Regardless of water levels, both plains game and predators thrive here and exploring the length of the channel and its associated woodlands (riverine forest and dense mopane) is a highlight and offers a remarkable safari experience.

This classic and authentic safari camp offers wooden flooring and raised walkways. The central area is a large, open-sided thatch and wood structure decorated with typical Botswana basketwork and artefacts. The dining area, elevated bar and large viewing deck offer great views, often with masses of elephants visiting the camp's permanent waterhole. Savuti lends itself to good old-fashioned hospitality, and a busy fire pit provides excellent warmth and atmosphere as we have come to expect from a top-class African bush lodge.
