Discover the pristine wilderness of Botswana with our range of camping and lodge safaris as well as bespoke tailor-made safari holidays.

Botswana showcases wild Africa at its finest with stunning untamed wilderness, iconic landscapes, remarkable game and fascinating ancient cultures that survives to this day. From the wondrous watery maze of the Okavango Delta that teems with wildlife to the great rolling expanse of the Kalahari Desert that morphs from blistering red to deep orange with the changing light of day, Botswana is a land of incredible contrast.

With one of the largest concentrations of elephant and popular game in Africa, Chobe National Park is a dream safari destination whilst the other-worldly panorama of the expansive Makgadikgadi salt pans has to be seen to be believed with prehistoric beaches and crusty pond beds.

Discover Botswana on an exciting overland expedition camping in national parks or sample some of the country's low-impact lodges on a small group tour or tailor-made holiday that covers many of the best places.
