Book Botswana Safaris

May 21, 2018

Botswana’s remote and sparsely populated game reserves in the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari Desert entice travelers with isolated tented camps.

See the Central Kalahari Game Reserve , a 20,772-square-mile game sanctuary that ranks second in the world in size; the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, widely known as the “predator capital” of Africa with its leopards, cheetahs, African wild dogs and lions; or Chobe National Park , where the elephant population is estimated to be 60,000. You might view wildlife from dugout canoes called mokoros, motorboats or four-wheel-drive vehicles, or on foot.

Botswana safaris are available year-round, although the best game-viewing periods are during the dry season in winter (May through August) and the springtime months of September and October. The best months for bird-watching are November to March.
