Botswana Safari Holiday
Home > Botswana Holidays
To go on Safari in Botswana, is to see Africa at its best, for the ultimate safari combination of big game, stunning scenery, luxury and privacy. Tourism in Botswana is thriving and with so much to see and do, it is not dificult to see why.
With it's excellent National Parks, good road network and a good selection of 4x4 car hire companies, I think Botswana is one of the best countries in Southern africa to enjoy the adventure of a life time by going on a self drive safari holiday.
Witness on of Southern Africa's greatest animal migrations as up to 25,000 zebra move from the dry saltpans to the Boteti river in search of water.
A maze of waterways create a vast oasis of palm islands and grassland. Huge herds of elephant, lion, leopard, giraffe and herds of plains game are found in abundance in the Okavano Delta area. Expert guides will take you on safari, by open vehicle, on foot and mokoro canoe.
Chobe National Park Botswana
The Chobe National Park is the second largest national park in Botswana and is located in the very northeast corner of Botswana, only a short 90 minute drive from Victoria Falls. Chobe is probably most well known for its large herds of African Elephants. The Park has four very distinct eco systems, Serondela (north east) with its lush plains and dense forests in the Chobe River area, the Savuti Marsh in the west, the Linyanti Swamps in the north-west and the hot dry hinterland in between. The Savuti area has particularly strong populations of predators and annual zebra migration makes an excellent place to go on a Safari Holiday.
Chobe Game Lodge
The Chobe Game Lodge is situated on the Chobe River in Botswana's Chobe National Park, twenty kilometers upstream from the confluence of the Chobe river and Zambezi river. This 48 roomed lodge overlooks the Chobe River and Caprivi floodplains. Chobe Game Lodge game drives are conducted in open sided 4x4 vehicles ensuring maximum visibility. Guests can also enjoy a romantic sunset cruise down the Chobe River. Cruises on small boats or aboard the Mosi-oa-Tunya, afford spectacular wildlife viewing and enable you to experience unforgettable African sunsets.
Game viewing on the Chobe River is conducted by small, shallow draft and highly manoeuvrable boats piloted by expert boatmen. Your resident professional guides offer slide shows, star gazing presentations, garden and river walks as well as walking safaris in the nearby Kasane forests.
San, Kalahari Bushmen
Kalahari Bushmen are indigenous people of the Kalahari Desert, which spans four countries, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Angola. The Bushmen of Africa are traditionally hunter-gatherers part of the part of the Khoisan group and there is genetic evidence to say that they are one of the oldest, if not the oldest, peoples in the world.
Botswana borders Zimbabwe in the northeast, South Africa in the south and southeast and Namibia in the west. A land of contrasts with the harsh dry environments of the Kalahari Desert & Makgadikgadi Salt Pans (Makarikari) and the wetland areas of the Okavango Swamps, Limpopo and Chobe Rivers and Lake Ngami. Botswana offers almost everything that you could want out of a true safari holiday destination.

The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta on Earth and is created because fresh water, instead of flowing to the sea flows inland, spreading over 15 000km˛ of the Kalahari sand creating a maze of lagoons and channels.
