The Best Location For Your First Safari Experience in Botswana | Africa
Reading Time: 3 minutes


If you have yet to experience the wonders of Africa, you are in for a real treat, and while African safaris are very popular, there are some quiet and inexpensive safari options if you know where to look. One such African nation is Botswana, a land-locked country in Southern Africa, which gained its independence in 1966, and around 70% of the country is the Kalahari Desert.


Botswana is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, with Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the north. This sparsely populated nation has embraced tourism, and with National Parks that contain the Big 5 and many other species, the tourist can observe these majestic creatures as they go about their daily life. 


Botswana is one of the safest countries in Africa, with a stable government and a population that enjoys a high standard of living, and with an English-speaking guide, you can enjoy the wonders of a 5-star lodge resort. The service is second to none, and the local people are by nature, friendly and hospitable, so you will have a great time with a tailored luxury safari. If you are interested in booking one of the affordable escorted luxury safari tours to Botswana, an online search will help you locate the right tour operator.



Chobe National Park

The third largest national park in Botswana, behind the Gemsbok National Park and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, and it is the most biologically diverse, with a thriving population of lions that inhabit the park. The elephant population is estimated at 50,000, and the Kalahari elephants are the largest in Africa. Your guide would easily be able to locate a herd that you can observe. Of course, the predatory species are never far away from the wildebeest and other herd animals, and you might be lucky enough to witness a kill, to see how lions work together, or watch the amazing cheetah spring into life as it takes down an Impala.

The Okavango Delta

The Okavango River touches a natural trough in the Kalahari Desert, in this large area. This delta is an essential place for wild animals to drink, and all the water is eventually evaporated away before it gets a chance to join another waterway. The Okavango Delta is the perfect place to observe the complete range of large animals. With more than 400 bird species, there’s something for everyone.

The best way to enjoy your safari in Botswana is by opting for a Customized Package, where you  have an English-speaking guide with you throughout your holiday, and you can decide where you go and how long you stay at any one place. The tour operator’s website would have all the details about the various places of interest and they can make some recommendations based on your interests.


There are already many tourists who are booking their safari for 2021, which means you should not delay in making your booking if you want to be sure that your dates can be accommodated. Planning every detail of your holiday is possible when you customise your safari, and if you tell the tour operator what species of animal you would like to observe, they can build the tour around that.
