Top 13 Reasons to Visit Botswana

Travelers often let us know why they loved their Botswana vacation and why they can’t wait to go back! We hear raves about how Botswana evokes the thrill and romance of a vintage safari… and offers guests the best overall authentic safari experience.

Here are their top 13 reasons:

1. The stunning landscapes, pristine wilderness, and fantastic game viewing and birding year round – with no crowds!

2. Botswana’s commitment to conservation of environment, wildlife, and cultural heritage – a true leader in ecotourism  -  with a whopping 38% of land protected for wildlife and nature conservation
3. The incomparable Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta known as the “Jewel of the Kalahari.” Gliding in a mokoro through the watery channels, seeing a staggering array of wildlife and birds, experiencing the beauty and tranquility of this truly iconic place
4. The Central Kalahari Game Reserve with its magnificent black-maned lions and seemingly endless savannahs… a blooming desert in the Botswana summer season.
5. Chobe National Park… home to the largest concentration of elephants in Africa. A sundowner cruise on the Chobe riverfront to view, up close and personal, elephants at play amongst hippos and crocs and beautiful birds
6. Small (and often) luxurious camps & lodges providing an outstanding overall guest experience
7. The magnificent sunsets and amazing stargazing
8. Genuinely warm, welcoming, and respectful people made them feel like treasured family… not tourists.
9. No visa required for U.S. & Canadian citizens
10. English spoken here
11. Easy access with daily flights from the USA to Botswana via Johannesburg connection
12. Superb location for family adventure and bonding… the kids didn’t even miss Wi-Fi!
13. Never a dull moment on safari … game drives, guided bush walks, elephant interaction, horseback riding (for experienced riders), boating, authentic cultural interaction, and so much more
