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. It is here that we have chosen to start your safari, and we explore two vastly different biomes with a permanent water camp in the heart of the Delta, and a dry land camp further to the northeast of the Delta's permanent waterways, before heading off to the vast and surreal landscape of the Makgadikgadi Pans, where salt pans stretch as far as the eye can see.
