Tours & Safaris - Botswana

Botswana is world renowned for its remarkable natural features and tourism forms an integral and growing part of the country’s economy providing employment for Botswana’s people and sanctuary for its wildlife. A wide variety of tours and safaris are available which encompass a range of geographical regions. Safaris are the preferred activity in Botswana as they involve the viewing of game in wildlife destinations, whereas tours pertain more to sightseeing in urban and cultural settings.

Botswana is composed of a number of different safari regions namely the Chobe River, the Linyanti-Savute, the Okavango Delta, the Kalahari and the Tuli Block areas. These biomes vary markedly in scenery, biodiversity and game viewing and a certain area will host animal & bird species that will not occur in another. The Red Lechwe, for example, is an antelope that will only be seen in Botswana in the Okavango swamp areas. Travellers to Africa who partake in one of the many safaris Botswana has to offer are rewarded with an astounding spectrum of habitat ranging from large perennial rivers, classic wetland and dry Kalahari thornveld to Mopane woodlands and transitional areas in between these biomes. Typical safari activities in Botswana include game drives, boating, canoe safaris, mokoro excursions, game walks, bird watching and photography.
