Botswana tours & safaris will open your eyes to experience the hidden wealth contained within Africa.
It is no secret that Botswana, one of Africa’s most economically stable and affluent countries, is an African pearl, growing an growing within the tourism industry.
Along with having a flourishing education and health care system, Botswana is a landmine of sensational wildlife safari’s, offering some of the greatest creatures (in their natural habitat) on the planet. Botswana safari is rich in culture and refreshingly wild.
Botswana’s attractions, although predominantly consisting of national parks and game safaris, are constantly changing, adapting and finding diverse activities that will enthrall around every corner.
Situated in one of the aridest regions of Africa, the Okavango Delta, possibly the most iconic tourist attraction in all of Africa, is home to a spectacular selection of unique wildlife, diverse animals and an array of birdlife.
Okavango Delta is the worlds largest inland delta and contains a myriad of waterways and tributaries, of course contributing to the extreme attraction of the beautiful African wildlife. An experience that mustn’t be missed on your Botswana tours.
70% of Botswana is covered by the Kalahari desert. As a result, awe-inspiring tours into the remote silence of the Kalahari captivate those who seek the ultimate desert adventure, stargazers, camel riders and people escaping the frivolities of city life. The central Kalahari Game Reserve provides great holidays that travel through the very core of African desert studies.
Encompassing an emphatic 11,000 sq km is the quintessential Chobe National Park. On your safari holiday here, you will observe some of the most varied wildlife in Botswana. With the highest concentration of game and lying just 100 km south west of Victoria Falls, this area epitomizes Africa’s charm, in a condensed, scintillating area.
Other great things to do in Botswana include the Tsodilo Hills, a spiritual outdoor art gallery that exhibits the ancient rock paintings/engravings of the San Bushmen. The Moremi Game Reserve contains an unrivaled amount of game life. With the top 5 on offer, the park recently introduced the black and the white rhino.
Seswaa, the Botswana national dish, is a tasty maize porridge dish usually with a lot of meat, but equally nice with vegetables or spinach.
Groundnuts and beans are also part of the staple diet in Botswana, along with an array of exotic fresh fruits.
After gaining independence from the United Kingdom in 1966, Botswana has gone from strength to strength, now boasting a modest standard of living and still becoming one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
Sparsely populated, with an array of wildlife adventures and activities, Botswana holidays have never looked so bright.
April-May tends to be the perfect time to visit Botswana with regards to the weather. June-September has very cold nights and very hot days and is also generally a great time to visit.
The rainy season arrives between December and March.
For big game safaris from September through October are when the game is most condensed due to the hot, dry weather.
The trip to South-Africa was well organised. We had qualified persons at every stop to guide us with a lot of knowledge about the different area's. At the beginning we received a comprehensive booklet detailing every part of the tour. We had one day where the weather did not permit to have our planned activity and the guide helped us to find alternatives without a problem. We will surely book via this route again if we come to South-africa again.Read More Read More Less
I thank my travel partner for finding Hannah and between the two they set up a fantastic short trip-2 days in the wine country,2 days at Tsala Treetop Lodges, and 2 days at Shamwari Private Game Reserve. It was more enjoyable than what we expected, and We would highly recommend Her.Read More Read More Less
My dearest Hannah, she know and loves her job! And she knows it very well. She made me feel like we were apart of the family and we we going a trip together
Hannah was great - we were able to skype with her and fine tune the trip we thought would suit us with advice and suggestions from Hannah. We had guides to pick us up everywhere and who were very knowledgeable and very good to talk to. We made the mistake of only asking for 2 days to see the animals (our choice) and would have liked to have had longer - the animals were amazing and we saw the big 5 and more. Hannah was very easy and helpful to work with.Read More Read More Less
Our advisor, Ms Hannah, was very friendly and responsive when we first approached her about our holiday to South Africa. With precise questions, she easily grasped the general expectations we had for our holiday and quickly drafted a personalised itinerary for us. From there, we just had to make payment (after a few date adjustments that Hannah happily assisted us with) and eventually enjoyed a stress and worry free holiday when the day arrived. At no point during our holiday did we feel lost or frustrated. The drivers and tour guide assigned to us were exceptional and truly contributed to the wonderful experience we had. This was our first time engaging a private tour and after this trip, we will most probably be doing more holidays in a private tour setting from now on.Read More Read More Less
