Hand-crafted Travel to Botswana

Botswana is the top destination for encountering large herds of magnificent elephants with the highest population in Africa. As renowned travel specialists, our Botswana safaris are private and luxurious, offering an extensive variety of large Big Five game, birds, and water-based wildlife and some of Africa’s most exclusive lodges.

Combine both delta and desert in our Botswana tours, exploring flooded lagoons, golden dunes and moonlike salt flats.

Glide through the Okavango Delta‘s waterways by canoe, bursting with greenery and wildlife. Traverse the Kalahari Desert on quad bikes and spot black-maned lions as an alternative experience to a walking safari.Head out on an exclusive, privately guided mobile safari, following the wildlife in your private camp. Witness the spectacle of the zebra migration on a safari experience as over 30,000 animals cross the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

Whatever your desire, True Travel can deliver you a truly wonderful Botswana experience.

Travel into Botswana is most commonly via South Africa.

Unlike many of Africa’s other safari orientated destinations, Botswana remains a destination that can be visited throughout the year.

The summer rainy season a viable time to travel, thanks largely to how well the rains drain through the sands of the Kalahari Desert that covers much of the country. This, coupled with amazing wildlife viewing and prices that can be less than half of what they are in the drier winter months, it is an incredible time to visit for those that don’t mind the heat and some rain storms.

That said, the traditional dry season months are still incredibly popular and offer some of the finest game viewing anywhere in Africa.

Botswana Hotspots

Whether you’re looking to float down the waterways of Chobe National Park, take in the lunar-like landscapes of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans or quad bike on the sands of the Kalahari Desert, Botswana provides the ultimate outdoor playground.

Savuti

Found to the south of the Chobe National Park, the Savuti region is characterised by dense sections of mopane forest and large open glades that surround the Savuti Marsh. The marsh itself is fed by the Savuti Channel, which feeds down from the Linyanti River.

Tuli Block

Botswana’s Tuli Block is tucked away in the east of the country between South Africa and Zimbabwe and, despite being the least-known of Botswana’s safari areas, is an incredibly rewarding destination for keen safari-goers who want to escape the crowds and enjoy something truly different.Tuli is renowned for its dramatic landscapes, with huge rolling hillsides, towering baobab trees and endless dusty red plains which support an abundance of wildlife including elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah and giraffe.

Okavango Delta

As one of the most sought after wilderness destinations in the world, the Okavango Delta gives entrance to the wild Africa that dreams are made of; the heart-stopping excitement of big game viewing, the supreme tranquility and serenity of an untouched delta.A journey to the Okavango Delta is like no other.

Moremi Game Reserve

The Moremi was the first reserve in Africa that was established by local residents. Concerned about the rapid depletion of wildlife in their ancestral lands due to uncontrolled hunting and cattle encroachment, the Batawana people of Ngamiland took the bold initiative to proclaim Moremi a game reserve in 1963.

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans

The Makgadikgadi, an area of 12 000 sq km, is made up of a vast and eerie lunar-like landscape. The area is characterised by magnificent salt pans, dotted with islands of palm and baobab trees.

Chobe National Park

Undoubtedly one of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, the Chobe supports a diversity and concentration of wildlife unparalled anywhere else in the country. Established in 1968, the park covers approximately 11,700 sq kms, encompassing floodplains, swamps and woodland.
