Botswana Holidays


With a wealth of pristine habitats providing exceptional game viewing and beautiful scenery, plus a range of high quality camps and lodges, Botswana is one of the continent’s premier safari destinations. The compelling beauty of its vast, untamed wildernesses is unforgettable.

Discover big game on a traditional game drive, spot crocodiles and hippo as you glide through the waterways of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro (canoe) or enjoy a thrilling walking safari. In the north, Chobe National Park boasts the largest concentration of elephant in Africa and you can spot these majestic creatures as you enjoy a sundowner on a river cruise.

Botswana is a popular choice for those looking for a luxury wildlife holiday and it’s also a wonderful option for a truly special honeymoon. We can help you with safari holidays, river cruises and guided small group adventure tours here and it's easy to combine a visit to majestic Victoria Falls for a truly varied African adventure.

  • WHERE TO GO IN BOTSWANA

    Botswana map
    Chobe National Park
    Covering a huge swathe of northern Botswana, Chobe National Park boasts the highest concentration of elephants in the world, as well as a large variety of other wildlife. Enjoy game drives and river safaris in the easily accessible Chobe Riverfront area or spot lions, leopards and wild dogs in Savuti.
    Okavango Delta
    This beautiful inland delta is considered one of the world’s greatest natural wonders. The flowing waters create a unique environment home to a diverse range of animals including prolific birdlife. As well as wildlife spotting on land and by water, visitors can marvel at the phenomenon of this inland delta where the meandering channels ebb and flow across sweeping floodplains.
    Central Kalahari Game Reserve
    The Kalahari Desert is one of the world’s largest sand basins covering much of Botswana and parts of Namibia and South Africa. At the heart of the desert is the immense Central Kalahari Game Reserve, home to migratory herds of springbok and gemsbok, as well as wildebeest, hartebeest, eland and giraffe. This reserve offers untamed African wilderness at its best.
    Makgadikgadi Pans National Park
    One of Botswana’s lesser known attractions, Makgadikgadi Pans National Park is a vast, desolate landscape which supports many desert adapted species including springbok, gemsbok, aardvark and meerkat. The Kalahari’s great salt pans are located in large areas to the south and east of the park and are widely believed to be one of the largest salt flats in the world.
