Why we love Botswana

The latest insight from our time spent exploring Botswana.

Wildlife & Game

Botswana offers the visitor a safari experience that's hard to surpass in volume of wildlife and variation of environment. From the deep water channels of the Okavango to the arid but rich deserts of the Kalahari, a safari in this landlocked Southern African country offers enormous variety of habitat, wildlife interactions and activities to experience.

Location & Scenary

Often referred to as the Jewel of the Kalahari, Botswana has a well deserved reputation as Africa’s most iconic big game safari destination. Covering an area the size of France with a population of just two million, there's a vast amount of space to explore. Huge swathes of the country come under protection as categorised national parks. Vast wildlife rich reserves extend the safe haven for wildlife right across the country, overlapping even into neighbouring countries. The government of Botswana has set a conservation example and sustainable tourism policy that's an example much of Africa would do well to follow.

National Parks

Botswana's national parks and game reserves form the heart of the vast protected areas of the country. The government works in partnership alongside responsible safari tourism operations as stewards of the country's wild areas which in total cover nearly 20% of the country. Their responsibilities include control of visitor numbers and managing anti-poaching operations. Only two geographical features of Southern Africa are visible from space, both are located in Botswana. Firstly the distinctive web and watery channels of the world’s largest inland delta, the Okavango, with the Moremi Game Reserve at its heart. Secondly, the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, a pan system the size of Switzerland and home to Africa’s second largest wildebeest and zebra migration. National parks in Botswana include the Chobe, Nxai Pan and the Makgadikgadi Pans, as well as the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park on the South African border. Game reserves include the Chobe, Central Kalahari, Moremi and Khutse amongst numerous others, a huge variety of landscapes to experience that can be included in a luxury Botswana safari package.

Accessibility

Botswana shares her borders with Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe. There are numerous land routes into the country with many visitors driving up from South Africa to the northern wildlife areas. With the proximity to Victoria Falls in the north east, the Zambian and Zimbabwean borders are also key entry points from which to start a luxury Botswana travel experience. Many international visitors arrive by air, with direct flights form Cape Town and Johannesburg. Maun is the real gateway to the Okavango and as such the key entry point, many visitors headed for Chobe also arrive into Kasane and a few use Francistown as the point from which to approach Nxai Pan, the Makgadikgadi and Central Kalahari. The majority of luxury Botswana safari lodges are located in remote and hard to access areas making the use of light aircraft a key and often necessary component of a Botswana safari package.
