Botswana Safaris and Tours
Botswana is known to be hot and dry, with the exception of the lush oasis of the Okavango Delta in the north of the country - reputedly one of the most beautiful places in the world, making Botswana Safaris a firm favourite for tourists. Largely off-the-beaten track, Botswana is a haven for wildlife - especially elephants which can be seen on safari in one of the many National Parks.
Botswana’s History & Background: Formerly known as Bechuanaland, the country was a British colony until 1966. These Botswana Safari areas were first inhabited by the San (Bushmen) and then by the Khoi-Khoi (Hottentots) and the Bantu groups. Botswana is a landlocked nation, bordered by South Africa to the south, Namibia to the west, Zambia to the north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast. Botswana is one of Africa's most stable and peaceful democracies. With its economy closely tied to South Africa's, the country is dominated by cattle farming and mining, boasting huge diamond deposits.
Our Botswana Safaris include a visit to some of the most popular attractions which can be seen below. These Botswana Safari Attractions include: the Chobe National Park, the Okavango Delta, the Kalahari, the Savuti Game Reserve, the Linyanti Game Reserve, the Moremi Game Reserve, Tuli Block, Makgadikgadi Pans, Khwai River, Khama Rhino Sanctuary and more...
Scheduled and Tailor-Made Botswana Safaris: Botswana is the ultimate safari destination in Southern Africa. Why not go on one of them…? Below you will find numerous small group (maximum of 10 clients) Botswana safaris that Jenman African Safaris runs in and around Botswana. You can join one of our scheduled Botswana camping Safaris, Upgraded Camping Safaris, Fully Upgraded Camping Safaris or Botswana lodge safaris. Alternatively, if you’d prefer, one of our experienced travel consultants can tailor–make a private Botswana safari to meet your departure date, time period, group size and budget. A great option is to come on one of our lodge safaris where we'll fly you in your own private plane from one lodge to the next.
