A Botswana safari is perfect for seeing big cats – Moremi National Park is one of Africa’s best location for lions, leopards and cheetahs, at any time of the year.

However, If you’re looking for larger pride of lion, you’ll love Duba Plains – further north the Linyanti Concession and Chobe National Park are also excellent for finding elusive cats such as leopards. Lebala Camp is also a habitat for cheetahs and leopards.

During the dry season, several camps in Botswana offer walking safaris – giving you the excitement of tracking cats on foot, from a safe distance. Here are 10 reasons why you need to go on a big cat safari in Botswana
