This land locked country is situated in the south west portion of Africa. The most notable feature of Botswana is its landscape which is mostly flat, covered for the most part by the Kalahari Desert. Salt pans, marshes, rivers, desert sand and rocky outcrops form Botswana’s variable landscape which caters to a diverse collection of plant and animal species.
- View Botswana’s myriad wildlife including massive herds of elephant, buffalo and plenty of predators on expert guided game drives.
- A gentle & peaceful ride on a mokoro (traditional canoes) along the tranquil waters of the Okavango Delta, where you are virtually eye level with the water.

- Interact and learn more about the ancient cultures and traditions of the San bushmen that still live in protected parts of the Kalahari.

Best Time To Travel
- Dry winter months from late June to October before the rains start in November (Peak Season). Be sure to book early!
- Secret Season is just after the rains from about March/April, great for photographic opportunities and baby herbivores preyed on by predators.
