Why go to Botswana

Botswana is an untamed wilderness, Africa in her most natural state. The country has a very small population and the government has designated nearly 17% of the country to National Parks and a further 20% to protected wilderness areas. The world famous Okavango Delta is one of the last great wetlands in the world and all of these factors combined ensure that Botswana has abundant game, birdlife and incredible flora kingdoms.

Where to go in Botswana

Chobe National Park

Home to a population of nearly 120 000 elephants and other large herds of buffalo and antelope. The lion and other predator populations follow. A boat cruise along the Chobe River is an exceptional way to view these animals; as is the 4×4 safaris through the park.

Okavango Delta

The world’s largest inland delta, nearly 15000 kilometers of inland waterways, inland lagoons and islands. Traditional wooden dugout canoes, or mokoros, take one on a leisurely meander through the myriads of waterways where the water is so clear and so pure, you can drink it. Walking safaris and overnight camping in the delta are an experience never to be repeated anywhere in the world.

Moremi and Savuti

The parks have no fences so the large populations of game, especially the elephant move freely along the ancient game trails. The birdlife is prolific and the predator list is impressive: lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena and wild dog abound.

Makgadikgadi Pans

The salt pans of Botswana (once an old Superlake) provide some of the most dramatic scenery in Botswana. Two of the pans, which are the largest of their kind in the world, provide on earth, a surface as close to the surface of the moon. In Winter, when it is dry, the entire surface dances with mirages, while in the summer months, pale green shoots appear and more than 50 000 wildebeest and Zebra migrate here. The flooded pans also attract a huge colony of flamingoes, which make a sea of pink wings and feet and beaks.

When to go to Botswana

The best time to visit Botswana is from April through September. These are the winter months so although it is extremely cold at night and the early mornings, the days will still be pleasant. This also is the dry season so the bush is dry and sparse which is perfect for game viewing. The channels in the delta will be full of water though, perfect for gliding along in your mokoro. Please note this is high season so prices will be higher.

The months from October through to February, prices will be cheaper, but temperatures will soar – you will be looking at day temperatures of 35 degrees Celcius or 95 Fahrenheit. The migratory birds will have returned and many of the animals have dropped their young, so this can also be an absolute highlight.
