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."

Again Naturetrek delivers a wonderful trip. Thanks to Paul and all the office staff in the UK for all their efficient work and to the guides, their knowledge and abilities are without question - superb.The camp staff were faultless, to produce meals of the quality they did, and dismantle the complete campsite to another site in the demanding wild bush, with the heat as it was, deserves some praise.

Thank you for organising such a wonderful holiday - it was a great adventure and a never-to-be forgotten experience. The arrangements for travel and camping were first rate and camping in the vast Okavanga wilderness was an extraordinary experience.

We were expecting shared long-drop loos and bucket showers so were delighted that each tent had its own loo and shower! Both guides were amazing all round naturalists and a joy to be with.
