Botswana Safari

Home to some of the greatest wildlife displays on earth, Botswana is one of the top safari destinations in Africa. There are more elephants in Botswana than any other country, lions roam free, and there’s everything from endangered African wild dogs to aquatic antelopes. And with their rhinos making a comeback plus the abundant birdlife at every turn, this country is a perfect destination for a safari full of unique wildlife experiences. Botswana is also home to the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari Desert, iconic African landscapes and vast stretches of untamed wilderness.
