Luxury Hotel Accommodation
Botswana is literally an oasis in the desert - the desert being the Kalahari, cut into jigsaw shapes by the tributaries that vitalize the Okavango Delta. And where there is water there is life, lush and green and teeming with animals and birds.

Aptly described as "a sea of land, a land of water," Botswana is home to some of the most spectacular vistas on Earth, reminiscent of an "Africa as it used to be." Botswana is home to 10,000 square miles of lagoon, marsh and papyrus channel, much of it protected wildlife habitat. Here you will find, for example, the largest concentration of elephants in all of Africa, along with buffalo, zebra, giraffe, gazelle and dozens of other mammals and birds.

We have been sharing this unique safari experience with the world for decades, in a variety of programs to suit every type of traveller - from adventurers, to families, to connoisseurs - led by the region's finest safari escorts, in small, intimate groups travelling in open game-viewing vehicles. You will stay at Botswana's finest camps and lodges - Chobe Chilwero Lodge, Chief's Camp, and Stanley's Camp - far from civilization, but also far from rustic.
