Botswana is a veritable African Eden, one of the last great wildlife destinations to be found on the continent. Botswana really has it all.
The Kalahari desert not only boasts the largest unbroken stretch of sand in the world, but also salt pans, ancient baobabs, riverine islands, fossil river valleys, black-maned lions and the original San people.
One of Earth’s last true wildernesses, the vast inland Okavango delta, subject to seasonal floods of biblical proportions, has an astonishing abundance and variety of species, both large and small.
Eager to avoid the vagaries of mass tourism, Botswana has consciously kept the country highly exclusive. Scattered around the reserves and concessions are isolated lodges of varying sumptuousness where fortunate guests can appreciate the raw, pristine beauty of vast natural landscapes and marvel at a cornucopia of wildlife encounters and spectacles.
