TRAVEL TO BOTSWANA
LUXURY TRAVEL BOTSWANA
Botswana is known as one of the last untouched places in Africa. A land of timeless beauty, it teems with a wide variety of wildlife and for that reason alone, is not to be missed in an African itinerary.
Vast expanses of beautiful, uninhabited wilderness stretching to the horizon, the sensation of limitless space, stunning sunsets of unimaginable beauty and night skies littered with stars – all these will create fond memories for each traveler coming to this beautiful country. But perhaps most of all, Botswana’s greatest gift is its ability to connect travelers with nature and the astonishing diversity of plants and animals to be explored.
The Botswana Wildlife and National Parks have spear-headed conservation in the region by protecting a fifth of Botswana’s territory.
Best Time to Visit:
