Botswana holiday highlights

Botswana is an increasingly popular destination among those who want to experience a safari with a difference. Luxurious lodges sit by enchanting wetlands and mokoro canoes provide a pleasant alternative for a safari to conventional 4x4s. A popular choice for the more intrepid traveller, it offers a more personal and exclusive experience.

Botswana Holiday Highlights
• Cruise through the breathtaking Okavango Delta, a trail of meandering waterways punctuated by lagoons and reed beds home to hippos and crocodiles.
• Spot lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, zebras and hippos, as well as herds of elephants drinking and splashing around on the banks of the Chobe River in Chobe National Park.

Botswana - The Essentials
• Expect early starts on safari for the best wildlife viewing opportunities
• Many camps have a minimum age of 7
• Tip your driver/guide at the end of your safari
• If you have plenty of time, we recommend combining a trip to Botswana with a journey through Namibia or South Africa
• On most light aircraft flights, luggage must be in soft bags and weigh a maximum of 20kg. Extra luggage may be stored on request.

Random Fact
The Okavango Delta is one of the world’s largest inland water systems, covering approx. 6,000 square miles during peak season. It takes almost nine months for the water to make its journey from the Angolan rains to the bottom of the Delta, creating a plethora of waterways weaving between islands.

Whether you want to immerse yourself completely in this beautiful country or combine a visit with a few days in Zambia, Cape Town and or the idyllic beaches of the Indian Ocean, we can help create your dream holiday.
