'If I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa' - John Heminway

Why visit Botswana?

From the calm and tranquil waters of the Okavango Delta, to the dunes of the Kalahari Desert, Botswana offers a unique and diverse luxury African travel experience.

Most of Botswana consists of semi-desert, yet there are numerous places where wildlife is thriving. Home to an estimated 30% of Africa’s entire wildlife population, Botswana boasts some of the world’s most well-known and populated wildlife parks, which provide ideal destinations for viewing game.

Visitors can take in the beauty of the natural landscape through 4×4 game drives, boat cruises and hot air ballooning in select locations. For the more adventurous at heart, guided walking safaris or horseback trails are also available.

Apart from its astonishing natural diversity, Botswana also has a unique cultural landscape. The Batswana people consist of three main indigenous cultures: the Twana, Kalanga and San (Bushmen). Resplendent basket crafts and handmade items can be seen everywhere, while historical sites showcase Botswana’s rich cultural presence throughout the ages. Ancient bushmen paintings, which are especially prominent in the Kalahari Desert, can be found on rocks and in caves. They tell a story of living closer to nature, a way of life that visitors can share whilst basking in the African sun.

Ranging in size from 15,000 square kilometres in dry times, to an astonishing 22,000 during the rainy season, the Okavango is the largest inland delta on planet Earth. Its vastness and the rich water supply make for a prime safari location with abundant plant and animal life to enjoy. Known as ‘The Jewel of the Kalahari’, the life and beauty of this Delta cements it as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Africa.

The park is home to the San people of Africa, adding a cultural element to any travel experience in the reserve. Historically, it’s estimated that the San people have been living in the Kalahari for as long as 30,000 years. Wildlife in the park includes exciting game such as giraffes and hyenas. Cheetahs and wild dogs, both rare species, can also be spotted by lucky visitors.
