Off the beaten track

From the evergreen labyrinth of the Okavango Delta (the world’s largest inland wetland system) to the rolling savannah of Savuti and the far-flung stretches of the Makgadikgadi salt flats, a journey to Botswana delivers the ultimate and exclusive safari experience. Imagine witnessing The Big 5 (elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion, and leopard) and rare species like wild dogs, brown hyenas, lechwe, and sitatunga, all on a single safari, and with nobody else around? Botswana’s wilderness is a reminder of what much of Africa once was…
