A tailor-made safari holiday to Botswana is a visit to nature's own paradise. Botswana is a country of optimism and stability; it supports some of the most breath-taking Game Reserves that are well controlled and preserved. Offering both water and land based activities as well as magical desert experiences, such as spending time with the diminutive San Bushmen, there is no end to the marvels you can enjoy. This is the place for the nature lover and birding enthusiast and adventure traveller.
Whether you are looking for a top of the range family holiday with unique accommodation and safari activities, a romantic honeymoon, a specialised fishing or riding safari, the richness of Botswana cannot fail to inspire.
Visit the lush Okavango Delta, with doom palms etched on every horizon, alive with astonishing birds and game; islands built on termite mounds and glistening waterways through papyrus which you can examine closely, almost being a part of it from a mokoro.
There are many choices depending on the time of year you want to travel: especially in green season go to the dry Kalahari Desert, inhabited by nomadic hunters and gatherers to see great regions of Savannah teaming with wildlife around the salt pans and the magnificent Makgadikgadi Pans famous for the atmospheric moonscape and ancient baobab trees. In the south west there is the great Limpopo River and the vast Mashatu Game Reserve and north on your way to see the magnificent, thundering Victoria Falls in either Zambia or Zimbabwe stay the Chobe region, with its prolific herds of elephants.
Botswana is a land-locked country in southern Africa lying south of the Equator and is geographically dominated by the Kalahari Desert. Botswana is bordered by Zambia and Zimbabwe to the northeast, Namibia to the north and west, and South Africa to the south and southeast.
Botswana combines well with...
The arid desert-scapes of neighbouring Namibia offering a good contrast to the water based activities in the Delta.
Botswana is now becoming more and more popular for family holidays and at the right locations, a holiday in Botswana can provide you and your children with an outstanding wildlife experience.
Botswana is undoubtedly one of Southern Africa’s finest destinations and therefore offers an extra special place to enjoy a riding safari.

The diverse habitats of Chobe, Savuti, the prolific Moremi and the unique Okavango are sensational, both in the summer for birds especially, and also the dry autumn, winter and spring months for bigger game including large herds of elephant, plains animals and their predators - lion, leopard and cheetah.
