Botswana is a veritable Land of Plenty but also a country of contrasts.
Botswana is a veritable Land of Plenty but also a country of contrasts: from the lush greens and blues of the Okavango Delta, with its thick vegetation and gleamingly healthy wildlife, to the haunting and eerie Kalahari desert, home to bushmen. With the right itinerary design, gameviewing in Botswana can be outstanding.
Highlights include the game watching paradise of the Delta, large elephant populations, the zebra migration across the salt pans, rhino, wild dog, pristine wildlife areas and excellent birding.
Private Guided Safaris
A range of camps/lodges from luxurious to classic camps under the stars
David Foot has 30 years of experience guiding private safaris. David and Robyn, both born and raised in Africa, have lived and worked in some of Africa’s greatest wildlife areas - the Kafue and South Luangwa of Zambia, the Matusadona and Mana Pools of Zimbabwe and then for 15 years on the Nyika Plateau of Malawi. Their journey through Africa has led them to settle in Botswana which is now home with their two children.
Jacques Conradie is the leading private guide for water-based safaris using motorised boats to explore the labyrinth of waterways, channels, lagoons and islands characteristic of the unique Okavango Delta. Jacques knows the delta better than anyone, and in his company you are taking an adventurous journey across a watery wilderness in the spirit of safaris of old using a classic mobile camp which is set up on secluded and remote islands by his full team of camp staff. Here you really are in the wilds of Africa with gameviewing from the boats, excellent birdwatching, and game walks on the islands.
There was a time when there were distinct safari seasons across Africa. But things have changed over the years and visiting outside the traditional seasons is now not only possible, but often desirable.
