Botswana is one of Africa’s premier safari destinations, offering an exceptional variation of wildlife and landscapes. The country is home to the largest private concessions on the continent and offers some of the most exclusive wildlife experiences to visitors. The Okavango Delta is widely considered to be Southern Africa’s premier safari destination and the experience of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans contrasts that in spectacular style.
Whether it’s your first or your fiftieth African safari, there is little doubt that with the right selection of lodges in areas appropriate to the season of travel, you will leave this Southern African country having enjoyed an unforgetable safari experience.
Within the wild safari areas of Botswana you will find some of the most iconic and luxurious properties in Africa. There’s a great range in the interpretation of the word luxury. For some it’s cutting edge design, vast suites, butlers and private pools – Duba Plains. For others it’s simplicity and exclusivity with old school style – Barclay & Stenner Safaris – whatever your interpretation of the word, we are committed to ensuring that luxury is incorporated into your safari experience.
Botswana can be compared to France in size, but with a population of just 2 million people it is one of the least populated country’s on Earth. The safari areas cover endless Kalahari plains and grasslands, salt pan systems the size of Switzerland, watery wonderlands, great rivers and dense mopane forests. This variety of habitats results in a unrivalled diversity of wildlife.
The variety of habitat is added to by the great difference between the cooler dry months between May and June to the high heat but great game viewing of October through to the wetter and more humid period from November through to April.
Seemingly simple at first glance, Botswana is a complex place and needs to be well understood. This is where the True Luxury Travel team pulls on their in-depth understanding of this Southern African destination in order to plan a bespoke itinerary based on your brief rather than one that’s already pre-planned and might not be applicable to what you are looking for.
