When To Visit Botswana:

Botswana vacations offer the most exclusive safari experience in Africa. Virtually all Botswana’s famous wildlife areas are located in the north of the country. Okavango Delta Safaris are the focus for most vacations to Botswana, but the other best-known areas are the Moremi Game Reserve, Linyanti, and Chobe. These are classic viewing areas home to phenomenal concentrations of big game, as well as some of Africa’s finest camps.

Such places aside, Botswana itself is almost all desert. As a result, the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and Central Kalahari Game Reserve offer a unique desert safari environment. These arid, dry areas are less visited but form a startling contrast to the ‘typical’ safari areas further north.

A large part of Botswana’s main safari regions is divided into private reserves. The result is high prices yet a level of privacy and exclusivity that accounts for the country’s high ranking on visitors’ lists.

There’s plenty for you to do on your Botswana vacation in these private reserves. The majority of camps offer game drives, by day and by night, as well as walking, fishing, boating, and Botswana’s Okavango trademark mokoro activity (a dugout canoe safari).
