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

Blessed with pristine wilderness, iconic landscapes, healthy game populations, an abundance of bird life, and one of the oldest surviving cultures on Earth, Botswana is a dream safari destination. There's an incredible variety of natural wonderlands to explore from the vast, UNESCO-listed waterways of the Okavango Delta where the vegetation forms small islands to provide an oasis for wildlife, to the expansive Kalahari Desert marked by vibrant orange sand dunes and grassy shrubs where the popular meerkat lives in extended family circles.

There's also the Makgadikgadi National Park, which comprises one of the world's largest salt pans, a stark, featureless terrain that could easily pass as the surface of another planet. With a history of political stability and successful conservation efforts, Botswana is a safe and rewarding place to enjoy your safari adventure.

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.
