Arguably one of the most popular safari destinations in Africa, Botswana boasts a moderate temperature throughout the year, an attribute which finds great favour among tourists. The country is also home to Africa's most famous game park, Chobe National Park, situated at the Northwest of Botswana. Besides this landmark, Botswana also hosts a number of other highly rated safari camps, making this a highly sought after and beloved African safari destination.
A Botswanan safari is diverse in so many ways; The arid, dusty Kalahari plains cover vast swathes of the country, giving way to savannah grasslands, lush green forests and streams in the north while the wending sapphire waters of the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta, is home to a wide array of animals that have all adapted to live in this remarkable landscape. The stark, lunar landscape of the Makgadikgadi Pans is one of the most unique safari experiences on the continent; walk with San Bushmen, quad bike over the eerie salt pan, frolic with semi-habituated meerkat, or search for the elusive brown hyena. The Moremi Game Reserve is considered to be one of the best game reserves in the whole of Africa, and you will be amazed as you witness the vast numbers of wildlife here, particularly those of the big cats. Cap this off with a simply spectacular sunset boat cruise on the Chobe River, cruising alongside elephants and hippos, which will leave with an overwhelming array of surreal memories.

Take a Botswana safari with Africa Yethu and you’ll enjoy the best camps, starting in the Okavango – the planet’s largest inland delta – where you can explore by foot, vehicle or dugout canoe. A fifth of the delta falls inside the Moremi Reserve, including an area lauded as the country’s predator capital. Further north, the Selinda Reserve sits on a major migration route, while Chobe National Park boasts some of Africa’s densest game concentrations, including 500-strong herds of elephants.
