Tours in Botswana

Botswana is regarded as one of the best safari destinations in all of Africa, and as soon as you find yourself roaming the expansive and untouched wilderness spotting the myriad wonders of nature among jaw-dropping vistas, you’ll see why.

Synonymous with Botswana are its wetlands – a maze of meandering waterways, fertile floodplains and lagoons. The Okavango Delta is teeming with an unbelievable variety of wildlife, from lions and zebra to elephants, crocodiles and hyena. With this unique biome comes the opportunity to safari through the delta by mokoro (canoe), allowing you a closer, and more personal perspective from which to spot the indigenous animals.

Included as part of our Victoria Falls, Chobe and Okavango Delta Tour, combine your wildlife experience with the sheer force of nature that is Victoria Falls, before sitting back and sipping sundowners as you enjoy a scenic cruise along the Zambezi River. As the evening draws in, return to your chic lodge accommodation while herds of elephant and giraffe create silhouettes across the molten horizon. 

Alternatively, experience Botswana from a unique perspective with one of our fly-in safaris. Gaze on the expansive savannahs and river channels from your light aircraft – a speedy, convenient and luxurious method of travelling between Botswana’s many game reserves and accommodations.
