Botswana holds the esteemed position as a conservation leader – here, where there are just over 2.5 million people, the government has been thoughtful and progressive about its conservation measures. The result is one of the last great remaining wildernesses, and the largest inland wetland in the world.
The matrix of habitats, the hydrological variation and the vast space create a wonderland of wildlife. Carefully developed to only have small-scale bush camps and difficult to access, the protected areas of Botswana remain a jewel in the safari crown. Seasonal variations in wildlife occur most notably around the Kalahari so while this itinerary does include this destination, at certain times of the year we might recommend itinerary adjustments.
