Why We Love Botswana



Botswana, Africa’s Safari Jewel

Botswana is regarded by many to be the premier safari destination in Southern Africa. Few countries offer visitors the variety and exclusivity that can be found across the different locations within this jewel of the Kalahari. For anyone thinking about Botswana for their African safari, the opportunities it represents for a breathtaking safari are vast. For honeymooners, the classic elements of spectacular scenery, world-class game viewing, expert guiding and both luxurious and wonderfully authentic accommodation combine to make this an ultimately romantic choice.

Remote, Vast and Exclusive

Botswana is best enjoyed when staying at one or a combination of the small, high quality lodges in the remote locations across the northern regions of the country. Those small lodges, with their high levels of service, attention to detail and privacy of safari experience are at the very top of their game and, as long as you listen to the advice offered by your experienced consultant at True Luxury Trave, you will be able to choose the right locations and lodges for your interests and the best time of year to travel.

One of the most notable features of Botswana is the size of the private safari concessions in the north of the country. It’s not uncommon to talk about an area in the hundreds of thousands of acres, it is just that vast. In an area the size of some small countries you may find there are only a handful of safari vehicles out at any one time. So the dreaded traffic jams around wildlife sightings, sadly common in some areas of Africa, are non-existent here. This is great for honeymooners looking for that feeling of truly being in wild Africa, far away from smartphones and disruption of other tourists.

Variety and Flexibility

An added benefit of Botswana for any visitor, but again something which really appeals to honeymooners, is the varied activity options. Game drives in the day and night, walking safaris, mokoro (dugout canoe) trips, boat safaris, fishing, horse riding safaris, helicopter flights and authentic cultural experiences are just some of a number of options to choose from. This is not a destination to be stuck in a vehicle, but again, choosing the right location and set of activities for you can be difficult. The experience of the True Travel team means you are best placed to make the right decision on location and length of stay to make the most of a Botswana safari.

Seasonality is key in Botswana and this is where the help of your consultant really comes to the fore. Two very distinct seasons – a wet and a dry – combine with an unusual set of geographical features meaning that an experience at one time of year can be altogether different to that a matter of months later. It is very easy to get Botswana wrong, to be sent to an area where you are limited in the activities and restricted in your game viewing due to certain climatic and geographical features.

Ultimately, Botswana is one of those countries which really stirs the safari soul: the Okavango Delta, Linyanti Floodplains, Savuti Marsh, Chobe River, Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and the Kalahari Desert are just some of a wide variety of unique destinations offering unforgettable experiences.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
