Botswana is known for its boundless and pristine wilderness where big cats meander freely, hippos laze along marshy delta banks, and stampedes of wild Zebra leave behind a swirling storm of desert sand as they thunder across great distances in what is known as the longest big-mammal migration ever recorded on the African continent.

The infamous Okavango Delta is home to THE largest remaining elephant population in the world and is ground zero for what is arguably the best safari in Africa. Every year from July to September, a river that starts in Angola overflows in Botswana and floods across the land. The Okavango swells to three times its original size, becoming the second largest inland delta in the world and a vibrant emerald oasis. This surge of water pushes predators and prey alike more closely together onto the islands where you have front row seats to the action. The diversity of safari experiences in Botswana is unrivaled – ride in a safari vehicle or on horseback across wide open expanses teeming with wildlife, glide through the serpentine waterways of the Okavango by fan boat or traditional dug-out canoe (Mokoro), soar above verdant wetlands from the comfort of your private helicopter… these are just a few of our favorite ways to take in one of the densest concentrations of game in Africa.

Beyond the Okavango, Botswana is home to not one but several natural wonders to be in awe of. The Makgadikgadi Pans comprise the largest salt pans in the world. Chobe National Park is a true wildlife paradise and one of Africa’s most beloved parks, providing a haven for 50,000 elephants. The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the second largest wildlife reserve in the world, where giraffes graze, leopards drag their fresh kill into trees, and cheetahs dominate the race against buffalos and gazelles.

Botswana receives fewer visitors per square mile and has smaller safari camps than any other safari destination in Africa. With nearly a third of its territory being protected wilderness paired with the near pristine state of a largely untransformed wetland system – Botswana belongs to its wildlife.

The ideal time to plan a trip to Botswana is during the dry season between May and October. During this period, you can expect warm, sunny days and slightly cooler nights. At this time, the water levels will be at their highest, making it the perfect time to visit the acclaimed Okavango Delta.
