If you are looking for a truly outstanding safari experience, where the quality of your accommodation matches the exceptional game viewing, then look no further. We have hand picked some of Botswana's most exclusive, indulgent and secluded safari camps and lodges for you. Intimacy is key here, as with only a handful of guests at any one time you are guaranteed a personal 5* service by the attentive staff.
Elegant tented accommodation, private salas for afternoon siestas and wonderful views of the surrounding floodplains, helicopter transfers between camps, sumptious dinners under the African starry sky - this is all part of the experience.
Botswana is actually a year round safari destination but most people view the dry winter months (late May through to October) as being one of the best times to visit. Because of the lack of rain, the wildlife are more dependent on water sources, so the Chobe Riverfront, Savuti and Okavango Delta regions are just thriving with wildlife.
If you want to include a traditional 'mokoro' trip as part of your Delta safari experience, then these are also the best months to be in the Delta. The Delta experiences its highest water levels at this time, so water-based adventures can form part of your daily safari schedule.
The following itineraries offer a few suggestions to give you some inspiration, including a couple of suggestions as to how you can easily combine your safari with a 5* stay in Cape Town and/or Victoria Falls if you have the time.
