For safari lovers, a Botswana safari offers pretty much all of the safari activities you can imagine among Africa’s best safari experiences. From game drives to walking safaris, mokoro excursions, boat trips, hot-air balloon rides and more … these are the best Botswana safari experiences.
When it comes to safaris, Botswana is a paradise for humans as well as wildlife. With so many different habitats to explore, and a variety of ways to traverse them, the best Botswana safari experiences are not easy to categorise.
They’re easy to enjoy, however – whether you like your landscapes lush and green, or open and golden, you’ll find much here to delight you. Go on a game drive on the Chobe Floodplains or a hot-air balloon ride over the Okavango Delta, or take the controls yourself on a Kalahari quad bike.
Whatever your chosen form of transport, you’ll find yourself spending as much time stationary as moving – there’s simply so much that you’ll want to stop and look at.
The best Botswana safari experiences even include some where the line between movement and standing still is very indistinct. A mokoro excursion lets you get in touch with traditional lifestyles, while admiring the glittering wonders of the ‘jewel of the Kalahari’.
While the Okavango may snaffle the headlines, other parts of Botswana are just as worthy of attention. Criss-cross seemingly endless tracts of desert with the local San people and receive a lesson in sustainability that’s as old as the Tsodilo Hills. To the San, survival is a concept that applies to entire ecosystems, not merely the humans that make up part of it.
