Your Botswana Travel Experts

The Republic of Botswana is a landlocked nation in southern Africa. Formerly known as the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, it is bordered by South Africa, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The economy is closely tied to South Africa. The country is dominated by the Kalahari Desert, which covers up to 70% of the land surface of the country.

The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world, offers great scenic beauty and sustains phenomenal numbers of wildlife,both water based such as crocodile, hippo and various fish species to plains game; all of which can be viewed from game vehicles and various types of waterborne craft.

The summer season begins in November and ends in March. It usually brings very high temperatures. However, summer is also the rainy season, and cloud coverage and rain can cool things down considerably, although only usually for a short period of time. The prime winter travel season begins in May and ends in August. This is also the dry season when virtually no rainfall occurs. Winter days are invariably sunny and warm; however, evening and night temperatures can drop below freezing point in some areas, especially in the southwest.

Our seasoned and experienced Botswana Travel consultants will guide you through the booking process of booking your safari based on your requirements, budgets and expectations.

One thousand thanks for all of your work on this most memorable vacation. Everything exceeded our expectations. The two boys Hunt and Chandler each said it just might be a life changing experience.

Back home safe, tired and a bit poorer (economically, not emotionally). Trip was terrific and thank you for organising everything so well. All went like clockwork and no disasters happened. We travelled light just with backpacks which eliminated all the problems with checked-in baggage.
