Wildlife holidays in Botswana
Tell me about Botswana …
A land-locked country straddling the Tropic of Capricorn, Botswana offers one of the last unspoiled wildernesses in Africa.
Botswana is a country of extreme habitats: in it you can visit the vast waterless Kalahari, as well as the world’s largest inland delta – the Okavango.
Remarkably for an African country, Botswana has a tiny population. Just over one million inhabitants occupy this nation that is the size of France and Germany together!
Nearly one fifth of its area is given over to national parks and it has huge, unfenced game reserves.
Our Botswana specialist recommends..
"Our ‘Bostwana’ tour offers a comprehensive 15-day wildlife adventure to Chobe National Park, Moremi Wildlife Reserve, Victoria Falls and a 4-day exploration of the magnificent Okavango Delta. Our ‘Botswana’s Desert & Delta’ tour is birdwatching holiday to the spectacular inland delta of the Okavango."

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Botswana HOLIDAYS
Overall and excellent trip, the oustanding feature being the superb guiding by Brent and Grand Reed. Their knowledge of the area and its wildlife and their expertise in finding it was first-class. Nothing was too much trouble for them and it was a pleasure to be in their company.
This holiday was extremely good value and well run. The two guides (brothers) were first-rate and very efficient, and the organisation was superb. The camps’ staff were amazing, and always ready to help. Although we went on this trip with some trepidation despite the mixed weather, we had no problem at all. Generally a fantastic trip and I would recommend it to anyone.
The Delta is a special place but the trip was enhanced by the knowledge of the guide. We saw 240 species of birds on the trip as well as cats, Giraffe, Antelope, Elephant and hunting dogs. A very special experience!
