Botswana: Kalahari Kings and the Delta Jewel

Botswana is a renowned safari destination, celebrated for its dedication to conservation and its spectacular variation in terrain, from the red sand dunes of the Kgalagadi in the south, to the Okavango Delta wetland and the Chobe River in the north. This is the home of both self drive adventure, and fine-tuned luxury, combining big game encounters on game drive, on foot, and by boat. Unfenced wilderness abounds in this vastly rural country, which has retained its tradition and culture as an African destination. Discover the rolling grasslands of the Central Kalahari and the bejewelled waters of the Delta, while embracing the safari expertise that has grown into a Botswana custom.
