Experience your dream African safari in Botswana

Botswana is one of Southern Africa's premier wildlife destinations. It's also an unusual mix of desert and the world's largest inland delta. It's sparsely populated by humans but packed with a dazzling array and number of wildlife species! 

The country is known for its luxury Big 5 safaris in truly wild and wonderful landscapes. Some of the big highlights of our Botswana tours include the Okavango DeltaKalahari DesertMakgadikgadi and Nxai PansChobe National ParkLinyanti, Savuti, and Tuli Block, to name just a few. 

What makes Botswana a luxury destination?

Botswana is a luxury safari destination for many reasons. It’s an untouched paradise unique in many ways. From the Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its baffling biodiversity to the fascinating wildlife and hundreds of bird species making this their home, it's safari heaven. 

Furthermore, because of its remoteness, guests often have to travel by boat or air to reach the lodges. This exclusivity makes it a super luxurious experience. On our luxury Botswana tours, you're privy to some of Africa's greatest treasures and get to explore them in plenty of different ways. 

From quad biking or horse riding through the seemingly never-ending salt pans to gliding along the Okavango Delta on a mokoro (a traditional dug-out canoe) or taking on the bush with your own two feet on a walking safari, adventure awaits around every corner.

What you need to know about luxury tours in Botswana

Remoteness

Because Botswana is so remote and sparsely populated, you get front-row access to the wildlife on your luxury Botswana tours. You'll also often enjoy the convenience of a fly-in safari, taking you straight to your luxury lodge. Goodbye dusty, bumpy 4x4 rides to get to your lodge! Hello, sipping on bubbly and starting your safari early from the sky. 

There’s a reason Botswana is often referred to as “the wild heart of Africa”. Its remoteness and unspoilt wilderness will humble you by its vastness, from the glittering salt pans, Kalahari Desert, and watery web of the Okavango Delta. And, as you can only imagine, being so far away from the city lights means stargazing is out of this world (pun intended!). Furthermore, the country’s unique low-impact tourism model also ensures no big crowds, sustainable practices, and only highly exclusive experiences are on offer. 

Variety of wildlife

Botswana is a Big 5 safari destination, so all our luxury Botswana tours feature plenty of exciting wildlife sightings. Home to the world's largest elephant population, Botswana is also well-known for its many big cats like lions, leopards and cheetahs. You can expect to see all the usual suspects like giraffe, antelope, zebra, hippo, and more. However, there are also some rare and endangered species like the African wild dog that find refuge here. 

Furthermore, some species have also remarkably adapted to the harsh climate in the Kalahari Desert, such as the oryx, Kalahari lion, gemsbok and more. The bird life in Botswana is also incredible, with hundreds of species flitting throughout the country. The flamingos that meet in the thousands on the Makgadikgadi Pans are also a sight to behold.
