Botswana

Africa’s most aspirational safari destination

Safe, peaceful & democratic, with a Smart Traveller green stamp of approval, Botswana stands as a pillar of the African community, leading the way with visionary politics, sustainability and conservation. These factors, combined with some of the most pristine wilderness and highest game densities in the world, make it the destination of choice for any aspirational safari-goer.

Botswana is a land of contrasts from the vast Kalahari Desert and salt pans of the Makgadikgadi to the rich oasis of the Okavango Delta. Their ethos towards ‘high cost – low impact’ tourism has pathed the way for a network of private concessions which are home to just a handful of small, intimate safari lodges. All this equates to fewer people in one of the best safari destinations in Africa and near total exclusivity.

The trip exceeded my expectations and was the best family holiday I have ever had. Our children simply loved it and now I know more about African wildlife than they do about our own farm animals.
