The Land of Deserts & Deltas

An increasingly popular destination, land-locked Botswana offers wonderful opportunities for mobile tented safaris and guaranteed game viewing, including some of the best horse-back safaris anywhere in Africa. A politically stable country specialising in high quality, low density tourism, Botswana is the essence of untouched wilderness, one of the few places where you might travel for many long hours and see no hint of human interference. The best time to visit is between April and November, when large number of animals migrate towards the waterways of the breathtaking Okavango Delta.
