It is also home to one of Africa’s great natural attractions – the Okavango Delta, a wetland within a desert, getting its waters from rain falling in central Africa over 1000km away, and sustaining a huge diversity of wildlife.
But there is much more to Botswana. Chobe National Park (incorporating Savute) is renowned for its predator and Elephant populations; Moremi Game Reserve has an amazing variety of wildlife; the Tuli Block offers great game viewing, archeological and conservation projects and easy access from South Africa; and the Boteti River on the western boundary of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park encompasses cultural and wilderness experiences.
The best time to visit the country is April–October (the dry season), with highest rainfall December– February (mid-summer) and the other months being the ‘in-between’ months.

Botswana was fabulous, exclusive and the game viewing excellent. We saw a herd of 700 buffalo! Prides of lions, leopards up trees and preparing for a kill, elephants galore including a herd of 28, a family of Rhino and loads of zebra, impala & baboons!
