Botswana

The crown jewel of Africa.

A treasure trove of riches, Botswana is home to the glittering Okavango Delta, the great plains of the Chobe National Park and a nation of peaceful people who can trace their ancestral roots to the beginning of time.

King of Safari Destinations

Botswana is a safari destination that boasts outstanding wildlife density and variety. Its vast open spaces with minimal tourist development attracts a calibre of traveller who is passionate about nature and the true safari spirit.

Only Inland Delta

The only inland delta in the world

The Okavango Delta is a watery paradise of convoluted channels and islands that appear and disappear with the changing seasons. The Delta owes its existence to a tectonic trough in the Kalahari desert that prevents its waters from ever draining into the sea.

Geographic Heart

The geographic heart of sub-Saharan Africa

Similar in size to France, Botswana is a landlocked country that shares its borders with Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe. It is also one of Africa’s most stable and peaceful nations and enjoys the continent’s longest continuous multi-party democracy and a steady economy.

Low Impact Tourism

A low-impact tourism model

The government subscribes to a high-quality low-impact tourism model, which means that fewer visitors can enjoy more undeveloped space. Furthermore, concessions are only awarded to safari operators that uplift local communities and support the country’s vision to preserve its natural treasures.

Destinations in Botswana

The world-renowned Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park lie roughly 200 kilometres from one another. And while each offers a vastly different experience an unspoilt beauty unites them.

Okavango Delta

A river delta typically forms where a river enters an ocean. However, the Okavango Delta’s waters never make it to the sea. It is a rare natural phenomenon in the middle of a desert that gives rise to an ever-changing tapestry of life forms throughout the year.

Botswana best times

Visit us at any time of the year

Botswana enjoys markedly different seasons that attract different types of wildlife, meaning that any season is an excellent season to visit us.

E2018 Gomoti 191
January - March

The Celsius ranges from 18-31 degrees and daily afternoon thundershowers mean the landscape is rich in greens and blues. The wildlife is spread out in good numbers and all migrant bird species are present.

Machaba Gomoti Experience Safari Mvr 097
April - June

The air is drier and the temperatures dip ever so slightly. The wildlife is starting to concentrate on water systems. There is very good all-round viewing however most of the migrant bird species have now gone north.

E2018 Gomoti 122
July - September

The temperatures drop to zero degrees at night but are a warm 25 during the day. There are large wildlife concentrations around water sources and the vegetation is thinning, which makes for excellent visibility

Machaba Gomoti Experience Safari Mvr 056
October - December

The hot parched land lies in anticipation of spring’s first rains. Animals are drawn closer to permanent remaining water sources and the first migrant birds return. The first rains make for good wildlife viewing.
