Home to the Okavango Delta, one of Africa’s most iconic destinations, the country is a haven for conservation, wildlife and those who seek the road less traveled. The country is a tapestry of diverse habitats that are well-managed by conservation focused companies. From the game-rich maze of waterways in the Okavango to the grassy savannahs of the Kalahari Desert, the options to explore are far ranging with something for every type of traveler.

Drift peacefully in a wooden mokoro as elephants graze in a lily-dotted lagoon or spend the afternoon tracking leopards on a game drive. Explore Chief’s Island in the delta where some of Africa’s densest wildlife concentrations reside. See Africa’s largest zebra migration in the Linyanti Wetlands or sip on a gin and tonic as the sunset illuminates the thousands of elephants that gather along the Chobe River during the dry season.

With many of Africa’s finest camps in Botswana, the in-camp experience is just as memorable. Cool off in your outdoor shower as a giraffe grazes nearby or sample the local flavors as you dine under the stars. Watch the daily parade of wildlife wandering past camp, soak in the plunge pool as elephants stop by for a drink or simply unwind and enjoy the utter tranquility of the bush around you with a good book in hand.
