Big Five safari in Botswana

Botswana is arguably one of the world’s prime wildlife viewing destinations and while the Big Five needs no formal introductions, it is fitting to add that Botswana is one of the best countries to see these magnificent animals in one trip.

Leopard are elusive and not easily sighted

  • Chobe National Park for the highest concentration of elephants.
  • Savuti region for lion spotting.

  • Moremi Game Reserve will offer excellent views of rhino.
  • Mashatu Game Reserve plays host to the elusive leopard.
