Home to some of the most stunningly diverse wildlife and terrains in the whole of Africa, Botswana is the place to go for nature lovers and thrill seekers alike. With almost 40% of the country being dedicated reserves, the wildlife of Botswana thrives.

The Okavango Delta is heaving with animals and plant life. The Okavango River gives life to the lands to the south, forming labyrinthine tributaries, scattered with swamps, lush jungles and small islands. Botswana tours are a fantastic way for the savvy wildlife fan to get up close and personal with the animals. With so many game reserves you're bound to see some of the most impressive animals to walk the planet. Wildebeests, zebras, elephants, lions, leopards and cheetahs are all inhabitants of the country, as well as many species of birds such as the spoonbill, goliath heron and the pink-backed pelican. The diversity of the landscape is truly remarkable; from the Delta itself to the vast salt pans and baobab trees of Makgadikgadi, and the grasslands and savannahs of the Kalahari Desert, you will have so much to see.

Our Botswana holidays will give you wonderful experiences that you will remember for years to come. The Botswana tours we run are designed so you get the very best the country has to offer. As well as tailor-made Botswana safari holidays staying in lodges and camps, several of our overland adventure tours pass through Botswana, entering from Namibia and exiting to Victoria Falls. These include in a trip through Chobe National Park to see elephants, buffalo, giraffes and antelope in their natural environment, plus hippos, crocodiles and numerous birdlife from a boat trip on the world's largest inland delta. The home of diverse culture, landscape and wildlife, the natural beauty of Botswana is truly outstanding.
