About Botswana

Prepare to constantly pick your jaw up off the earth floor. If it’s not the epic beauty of the deltas, rivers, deserts, salt pans or world heritage sites, it will be your curious and appreciative fascination with the San people that will make you want to stay longer than your itinerary allows. Cruising in a mokoro down the peaceful but bustling Okavango Delta, walking safaris, and an opportunity to get suspense-fully close to some of natures most majestic wildlife is just the start of any Botswanan adventure. You’ll snuggle up to too many hippos to count on the Chobe river and watch baby elephants take their first steps. With more elephants in this country than any other country on earth, you’ll deepen your love and respect for these beautiful creatures as you journey through a country that feels like it was crafted perfectly for them. Enjoy being outnumbered.

When to Go: May-August tends to be dry and comfortable, making for great wildlife watching as animals seek waterholes.
