Botswana is a true wilderness area. The famous Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park make Botswana one of the top safari destinations in Southern Africa. The Okavango Delta, with its numerous waterways, is one of Africa’s last true wilderness areas and is well known for its large variety of birds and wildlife. A mokoro (traditional canoe) trip is a must for most people visiting the delta and one can expect to encounter crocodiles and hippos in the channels. The Chobe National Park is well known for its huge herds of elephants and high density of predators including lions and leopards. Popular activities are open vehicle game drives and a cruise down the Chobe river, where one can view a variety of wildlife on the banks of the river.
We offer a variety of tours and safaris to Botswana, from budget overland camping tours to comfortable accommodated safaris. Many of the longer Southern Africa overland tours, include a visit to both the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park. Shorter Safaris depart from either Johannesburg or Victoria Falls. A popular route is to combine a safari of Botswana with Victoria Falls. Those with more time can include either a Kruger Park or Namibia safari. Botswana is is one of the highlights of our very popular Cape Town to Victoria Falls overland tours and the South Africa to Kenya tours.
