Botswana Safari

Botswana

Your eye-opening Botswana safari showcases the staggering beauty of the Kalahari Dessert and the Okavango Delta, not to mention elephants, hippos, lions, buffalo, leopards, cheetahs and more, as you travel in the company of an expert leader and small group of like-minded adventurers. Throughout your Botswana safari tour, you’ll trek in the mainstream and off the beaten bath, staying at classic tented camps reminiscent of the glamour age of travel, with expansive wildlife reserves, mopane forests and rich, green floodplains as your backyard. Expert naturalist Lex Hes joins many of our Botswana safaris, bringing a naturalist expert’s insights into your wildlife viewing and photography experiences. Travel as a fully engaged explorer rather than a casual observer throughout your Botswana safari, making it both a life-affirming and life-changing vacation.
