Botswana Safari Holidays

Luxury Botswana safaris (tailor-made holidays or escorted tours) explore the exceptional wildlife and wilderness of Botswana's Okavango Delta, Chobe and Kalahari Desert.

Luxury safaris in Botswana

Botswana safari holidays offer some of the most spectacular wildlife and wilderness experiences in southern Africa. Highlights include: the Kalahari Desert, the surreal Makgadikgadi salt pans, the huge elephant herds of Chobe, and the vast floodplains of the unequalled Okavango Delta. A Botswana safari is an unforgettable holiday experience.

Having sundowners at the end of a long drive with a male leopard sitting above our heads in a tree was magical.

When to go to Botswana

It is always a good time to visit Botswana!

Read on for more detail about when to take your Botswana safari.
