Focus on Botswana

An 9-day Botswana Lodge Safari

This particular safari sets out to explore both the wetlands of the Okavango and the dry parts of the north of the country to highlight the extremes of Botswana’s semi-arid environment.

You begin your safari in Zimbabwe, bordering Botswana, to see the magnificent Victoria Falls followed by the largest congregations of elephants in the Chobe National Park. Your journey will continue to Khwai River area bordering Moremi Game Reserve and end deep in the heart of the Okavango Delta.

The unique northern part of the country has abundant wildlife and southern Africa’s largest intact ecosystem – the world renowned Okavango Delta. Most of the country is a semi arid environment and the Kalahari sands cover over 80% of the country.  Botswana is also home to the largest continuous elephant population in Africa and an excellent destination to photograph large predators. With healthy populations of lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and African wild dog and differing landscapes of the Okavango, Moremi, and the Chobe River.

Accommodation is in comfortable, luxury lodges.  Botswana lodges are small and remote where you can enjoy a fully-inclusive safari experience deep in the African wilderness.  Activities include day and night game drives, bush walks, fishing, boating, and mokoro trips on the Okavango Delta.

This is only one of many Botswana lodge safaris we offer.  We can help you customize this itinerary or design a unique, personalized journey with extensions to other destinations in southern Africa.
