A luxury Botswana safari

”duma

There is no shortage of luxury lodge options in Botswana, as some of the world’s leading travel companies and safari operators have created their masterpieces here. With vast protected areas and landscapes that have been declared by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites, the environment is pristine, and as far as nature is concerned, luxury abounds throughout the country. To show off this one-of-a-kind countryside to the custodians of the world, unlimited opulence has been achieved in a number of globally celebrated private tented camps and safari villas, which offer no holds barred treatment for their guests.

Airstrips service some of the most remote destinations of Botswana, bridging the far distances between the popular safari spots and cutting travel time down by hours, while offering scenic aerial views of the country and world-renowned piloting. Flying between Chobe River, Savuti, Moremi Game Reserve, the Kalahari, and the Okavango Delta luxuriously eliminates the time spent driving along dusty roads in challenging conditions, whisking travellers off to each destination in no time at all.

The most luxurious holidays in Botswana can be found in the private concessions of the Okavango Delta, where safari activities are exclusive and personalised, while the accommodation and lodge services are elite. These luxury camps are spaciously built, incorporating the natural arena with style and elegance. Only a handful of guests are hosted at a time, keeping the experience intimate. Activities are flexible, and there is no vehicle traffic in sightings making the experience entirely unique.

Activities that may tempt the luxury seekers and those with a higher budget include a rhino tracking experience, which takes guests on an exclusive walking safari among the reintroduced rhino population in Botswana; a hot-air balloon cruise above the intricate waterways of the Okavango Delta, seeing hippo and herds of lechwe from above while champagne twinkles away in a sunset-lit flute; and a desert sleep-out on the inimitable Makgadikgadi salt pans, which will be nothing less than breathtaking.
