The Kalahari Bushmen know the desert like the back of their hand. You can make the most of their knowledge by spending the night in one of their villages; learning about their customs over a traditional flame-cooked meal.
Selinda Canoe Trails
For over 30 years the Selinda Spillway has been bone dry: now it has flooded in full and the only way to see the area is by canoe. Spend four days paddling gently downstream, making impromptu camps on the river’s banks at night.
Venturing out on foot in northern Botswana will really bring the bush to life! On the private land in Linyanti you will have exclusive access to professional guides who can help ensure you have safe sightings of elephants, buffaloes and lions - vehicle free..
Meet Sarah Phelps, Regional Specialist for Botswana
Botswana for me is the ultimate safari experience. The lodges and camps are small and remote, offering an intimate safari experience, with vast open ranges, unrestricted wildlife movements and fewer crowds. In the Okavango Delta I took a mokoro gliding through the waterways exploring the flora and fauna. I was lucky enough to see a rare sitatunga, the most elusive antelope to spot on a Botswana safari. The Moremi area is one of the last refuges for beautiful wild dogs and where I saw my first sighting of these wonderful animals. We followed a pack for over an hour, we even got to see them hunting, it was really very special. Chobe National Park is famed for its large herds of elephants where I watched a family swimming across the river, all helping to keep the calves afloat and protected - memories that will stay with me forever.
