Botswana

Botswana safari holidays

Botswana lies in the heart of southern Africa and offers many different options for unforgettable safari holidays.

The country has a variety of vegetation zones, from the arid Kalahari in the south to the well watered forest glades in northern Botswana. This variety of ecosystems attracts the large quantities of big (and small) game for which Botswana safaris are famous. For example, huge herds of elephants and buffalos gravitate to the Okavango and other permanent rivers, whilst cheetah and other dry-country species inhabit the central Kalahari.

Even more impressive than the wildlife on a Botswana holiday is the wilderness: endless pristine areas almost untouched by human influence. The feel of remoteness in the middle of stunning landscapes combined with the constant presence of wildlife make safari holidays here unique.
