Botswana affords a study in contrasts, from salt pans to the delta in the desert. This vast sea of land holds some of Southern Africa’s best safari hotspots, and we’ve carefully collected them into our all-inclusive luxury Botswana safari ideas. Get creative, and design something just for yourself.
Botswana’s destinations offer an array of amazing experiences. The jewel in the country’s safari crown is undoubtedly the Okavango Delta, an emerald-and-sapphire patchwork quilt of waterways and floodplains in the north of the country. Outstanding game-viewing opportunities in this tranquil, unspoilt paradise make it a must-experience destination.
Our luxury safaris in Okavango, Savute and Linyanti unveil the best of the delta, and segue effortlessly into neighbouring regions where wildlife movements are shaped by transient rivers and mysterious forces.
Focused on northeastern Botswana, our luxury Chobe safaris explore a land of giants: floodplains and river frontages that play host to the world’s largest meta-herd of elephant. From here, it’s only a short hop across to Victoria Falls.
Central Botswana, in contrast, is a more arid region – but what it lacks in rainfall it makes up for in unique encounters, whether with San, inquisitive meerkat or the herds of springbok and oryx that congregate in the Central Kalahari during the brief summer green season. Meet these desert dwellers on our luxury Kalahari safaris.
To spend a night in fossil beds, explore the shores of a long-vanished inland sea or join hands to embrace the bulbous trunk of a baobab, you need to embark on one of our luxury Makgadikgadi safaris. These luxury Botswana safari trips are a great way to expand your horizons – you can even see the curvature of the Earth!
As well as curating these luxury single-country itineraries, we’ve also created all-inclusive safaris that add on beach experiences at Benguerra Island and the Quirimbas to include the one thing that Botswana lacks: a coastline.
