Botswana

Describing the entire country of Botswana as one big national park would be no exaggeration. Even the spaces and places between the country’s designated parks are wild and free and thriving in all of nature’s splendor.

With its wet and wild northern regions along the Chobe river, vast Central Kalahari and Makgadikgadi Pans, and its southern regions that spill over into South Africa, each corner of beautiful Botswana is unique in its own way and provide travelers with an unforgettable experience.

The Okavango Delta is like nothing else on earth. It's a place where wild creatures are the rulers of the land, where big cats and much, much bigger elephants are free to lead their lives in one of the world’s last true wilderness areas.

The world’;s most extensive unbroken stretch of sand, the Kalahari Desert, is home to the salt pans of Makgadikgadi and the world-renowned baobabs of Nxai Pans National Park. Complete with fossil river valleys, glistening, golden grasslands, and the echoes of the indigenous San people, the Kalahari is where travelers go to lose themselves and find their soul’s purpose.

From sumptuous lodges to remote tented camps, you’ll experience contemporary style and colonial nostalgia in one single adventure. Ready to explore a luxuriant wilderness of flood plains, forests, deserts, and lagoons? In Botswana, anything and everything is possible!

The Chobe River area is ideal for boat-based game viewing. Here, guests can cruise up and down the river as they watch herds of sable antelope, roan antelope, buffalo, elephant, and puku come down to the river. The birdlife here is prolific, and so is the sight of the river teeming with hippos and crocodiles.

At the Linyanti Floodplains, guests will come to truly understand Africa’s waterways and the part they play in the wildlife’s survival. Here, where the river forms a delta, it provides an oasis for many animals, including the African continent’s greatest elephant numbers.

With its woodlands, open floodplains, riverine forest, and dense mopane forest, the Linyanti Floodplains form one of Botswana’s most diverse ecosystems. Since Linyanti is made up of several private concessions, low visitor numbers are a fact of life, and an exclusive safari experience is always what travelers can expect.

Camps and lodges in Linyanti are some of the most sought-after accommodation options in Botswana, which means travelers that wish to explore this area must plan their safari in advance to ensure they do not miss out on everything this region has to offer.

Kalahari Desert

The idea of the Kalahari Desert might bring up images of vast, arid mysterious wilderness in your mind. And indeed, that is what the Kalahari is known for. Covering parts of South Africa, Namibia, and the majority of Botswana, this desert is a place of legend. This fascinating and remote region of Botswana is all but forsaken. For guests willing to travel off the beaten track, it offers some of the most life-changing experiences on the African continent.

Once part of a great inland lake, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, a vast wildlife preserve in the Kalahari Desert region of Botswana and South Africa, is characterized by red dunes and dry rivers. This amalgamation of Botswana’s Mabuasehube and Kalahari reserves and South Africa’s Gemsbok National Park are jointly administered by two countries. This region is recommended for viewing lion, hartebeest, and gemsbok, with game viewing activities peaking between June and August (winter months) when temperatures are milder.
