If there is one place in this world that is sure to leave a lasting impression, that is Botswana. It is a rare place where as wander freely through the country’s endless landscapes inhabited by some exotic wildlife, feel the connection to the land and its humbling indigenous population. The expansive wilderness areas and diverse terrain makes Botswana a heaven for wildlife and also one of the continent’s most sought after wildlife destination. With almost 40% of its fenceless territory comprising of national parks and private game reserves, large populations of game are able to freely roam across the contrasting landscapes. Botswana’s elephant population is the highest in Africa, which frequently grace the natural pools of many lodges and safari camps. Other wildlife you could expect to see during your safari include lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, caracals, bat-eared foxes, hippos rhinos, crocodiles, giraffes, zebras, primates and antelope – just to name a few.

Botswana’s landscapes are undoubtedly rich and varied ranging from the golden sand dunes of the Kalahari, the lunar-like surfaces of the Makgadigadi Pans and labyrinth of waterways of the Okavango Delta. These pristine habitats of the country have been well protected and thoughtfully nurtured as a result of top notch wildlife management and a pro-active approach to conservation. And due to the country’s low population density and extremely high proportion of protected areas, you can truly experience the most of the unspoiled wilderness during your safari.
