Botswana

This is a simply stunning country. Its deserts, pans and deltas are some of the last great, untouched wildernesses in Southern Africa and are home to a wonderful array of game. Self drive Botswana safaris offer so much to see. You could head off to see Botswana’s excellent National Parks, drive into the incredible Central Kalahari Desert or go and explore the riches of the Okavango Delta.

The National Parks in Botswana are extremely protected. They have only allowed a small number of lodges, tented camps, and campsites to be built so there is no impact on the natural environment. Though we praise them for taking this stance, it does mean that there is a huge amount of demand for a small number of properties, so you need to book early to get your first choice properties – we advise a year in advance if possible.
