Arguably the jewel in Africa’s safari crown
Botswana boasts some of the most dramatic and untamed wilderness you’re likely to find anywhere. Careful conservation means that you’ll also find some of the highest concentrations of wildlife anywhere in Africa.
On top of its staggering natural beauty, Botswana truly is an African success story; the fact that it is safe, well run and relatively prosperous makes it an attractive place to come and visit. Despite being dominated by the vastness of the Kalahari desert, Botswana’s various ecosystems showcase a dramatic diversity that can add serious depth to a safari. Your trip can encompass everything from the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans to the legendary Okavango Delta.
WHEN TO GO
In Botswana, the prime concessions have plenty of game year round. The green season, November through March, has advantages from a price perspective. Whereas the dry season, April through October, is the most ideal for game viewing. The wet season in the Okavango Delta has its own unique weather pattern—floodwaters usually start in March and come in very fast, so it’s best to avoid April and May. November to February is best in the Delta.
