Safari Enquiry

People who return for a Botswana holiday repeatedly give many reasons for their visits, and high on the list is the warmth and peace-loving nature of the local Setswana-speaking people, the incredible diversity of wildlife, exclusivity, and the large variety of safari activities on offer.

For a small country dominated by the dusty Kalahari Desert, a Botswana safari tour is truly unique in its available variety of activities. Activities in Botswana differ between seasons when landscapes alter dramatically, determined mainly by the natural flooding of rivers and annual rainfall.

The Chobe River in Botswana is a popular hot spot for tourist activities. Botswana safari operators offer fishing trips, specialized photographic safari boat cruises, game drives, and beautiful riverside camping. Chobe Game Lodge, the only lodge inside the Chobe Game Reserve, now boasts several electric and solar-powered safari boats, adding a new element of interest for the modern, eco-conscious traveler.

Savuti, to the west of the Chobe region, is famous for its mysterious and fascinating channel. It has a history of drying up unpredictably, influenced primarily by a series of shifting fault lines that lie deep below the earth’s surface, a continuance of the Great Rift Valley.

The Makgadikgadi saltpans also offer a wide range of exciting activities that keep guests returning again and again. In dry season adventurous travelers can quad bike across the pans and sleep out under the Milky Way, which the Kalahari Bushmen call ‘the backbone of the sky’.

In the green season, Africa’s second largest wildebeest migration unfolds alongside the Boteti River and is a magnificent spectacle, especially when viewed in dusty twilight hues.

The pristine, wild locations of Botswana’s camps and lodges make for an exhilarating Botswana safari, a perfect choice for those who treasure wild places. Safari-lovers speak of feeling a profound sense of freedom in Botswana’s wilderness that deepens with regular visits.
