Botswana Holidays

Pristine African wilderness

A vast network of waterways, rambling open spaces and dense bush, we love Botswana for being one of Africa’s most spectacular untouched wildernesses.

A safari through Botswana’s scrub-covered savannahs fuses the beauty of nature with the awe-inspiring spectacle of wildlife at its most primitive. Take a walk on the wild side and venture through the variety of landscapes Botswana has to offer, including Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta to spy graceful mammals and astounding birdlife amid the Moremi Wildlife Reserve and the Khwai River floodplains. A photographer’s dream holiday, visit Botswana at any time of year to experience an African wonderland where vast grasslands are dotted by statuesque acacia trees and plays home to cheetahs, rhinos, elephants and giraffes.

Why not combine your adventure in Botswana with a visit to South Africa, featuring vibrant Cape Town, Cape Winelands and Kruger National Park and more opportunities to see the Big Five against a backdrop of stunning countryside.
