Safari Parks in Botswana
Botswana focuses on high-quality safaris, as opposed to mass-market safaris on offer in other destinations. Because of this, Botswana's safari parks are well respected as some of the finest in Africa.
Botswana has a number of top parks, including the Okavango Delta, the Linyanti, Chobe, Moremi and the Makgadikgadi Pan - all offering distinctly exclusive and diverse experiences. For water-focused safaris, we recommend spending a few nights in Chobe and the Okavango Delta, where your game drives and river cruises hug the waterways to encounter the Big Five wildlife. Alternatively, for a complete contrast, you could consider travelling to the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans or the Central Kalahari to explore the desert landscapes, the meerkat communities and walk with the local bushmen.
Okavango Delta Safaris
This phenomenal park is an area of outstanding natural beauty that is home to some of the continent's most famous camps.
Moremi Game Reserve Safaris
Moremi offers exceptional big game viewing. It can be a bit busy; however, Chief’s Island offers some of the country’s most exclusive safaris.
The Linyanti Safaris
The Linyanti is the collective name for three private reserves – the Linyanti itself, Selinda, and Kwando - an area famous for its wild dog.
Chobe National Park Safaris
Taking its name from the Chobe River, Chobe is most famous for its vast elephant herds, with numbers as high as 80,000 in the dry season.
Makgadikgadi Salt Pans Safaris
The Makgadikgadi Salt Pans are the remains of a huge super-lake that covered much of this part of Africa many years ago. Today, all that is left are two huge salt pans – the Sua and the Ntwetwe.
Central Kalahari Game Reserve Safaris
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is a destination for connoisseurs and adventurers. This is Botswana at its most mysterious – a place offering true wilderness. The Kalahari comes to life during the wet season.
Savute, or Savuti, is one of four distinct areas within Botswana’s beautiful Chobe National Park. Commonly known as Savute Marsh, it is found in the west of the park and occupies over 10,000 square kilometres!
