Safaris in Botswana

Botswana

Indulge in the magic and beauty of wild animals

Watching animals within their natural habitats can be a joy to behold and Botswana is one of Africa’s most famous countries for wildlife viewing. This nation is home to some of the world’s most impressive wildlife destinations, including the Okavango Delta, which is a green oasis in the heart of the Kalahari and the Chobe National Park. Botswana Safari packages can range from top luxury safari camps to lodges but either way you will get the chance to see thousands of wild animals.

Botswana Safari Tours can be a perfect way for individuals to enjoy the visual and natural qualities of Africa during a holiday in which top quality accommodation is accompanied by viewing animals such as lions within their natural habitat. Away from the park, wildlife safaris in Botswana combine picturesque landscapes and scenery which only Africa can provide whilst relaxing in lodges situated on-site so individuals can soak in the lovely weather conditions from the comfort of their own accommodation. All Botswana wildlife tours are controlled by friendly and experienced park rangers who understand the true qualities of seeing wildlife animals up close. Both day and night game drives are conducted within heavy protected vehicles which ensure both the safety and protection of all passengers. Individuals who opt for Botswana safari holidays over the traditional holiday package receive the best experience of viewing animals within their natural habitat which can create many wonderful memories.
Freddie’s Story: One star who has extolled the virtues of safaris in Botswana is former England cricketer Freddie Flintoff.

The sportsman has been travelling around various parts of the world in search of trips in the fresh air and one of the places he visited was Botswana.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, he noted that his African wildlife safari was a great experience and something truly different. Commenting on his expedition to Botswana, he said: “The guides are unbelievable and the whole experience is full of suspense because you’re not being driven to guaranteed sighting spots. You can get within 20 feet of lions, zebras and giraffes and when you’ve walked miles trying to find them you feel you’ve earned the sighting.”

If you want to follow in Freddie’s footsteps and experience the delights of Botswana safaris, you might be feeling a little daunted. After all, if you’ve not been on adventures like this before, it can be hard to know how to go about planning them.
