Safari through Botswana

A safari in Botswana not only offers you a wide variety of wildlife, one of most of the diverse eco systems in all of Africa, but also a variety of activities beyond the traditional game drive. Walking, boating, and canoeing safaris are just a few. All lodges in Botswana are small and exclusive with no more than 12 tents in most cases, so booking at least 12 months in advance is recommended. And for high season times, when the Okavango Delta is full of water, we recommend 18 months advance to ensure the best availability.
