Botswana for the Traveller

Botswana – The History

Known for peace and tranquillity, diamonds and beef, Botswana is an enchanting country with unfenced wilderness, friendly people and culture. The country of the Tswana people is a safe and secure holiday destination to visit, with little crime and no political unrest. The small African kingdom enjoys a quiet democratic, and parliamentary government, a stable economy and good infrastructures. With a population of approximately 1.8 million, Botswana is said to have more animals – both wild game and cattle – than humans. In addition, Botswana has a rich cultural history, much of which is being discovered daily by amateur archaeologists. This includes the stone wall ruins, patterned pottery and Stone Age tools that litter the countryside.

A patchwork of habitats & wildlife

Botswana is ideally located in the heart of Southern Africa between Zambia, South Africa and Namibia. Known worldwide for the famous Okavango Delta, the country offers a patchwork of different ecosystems and magnificent wildlife: from the scorching Kalahari desert to the amazing waterways of the Okavango Delta. Also major safari attractions are the the Chobe National park, a typical African safari environment, and the amazing salt pans at the Makgadikgadi & Nxai Pan National Parks, which are annual hosts of the second largest wildlife migration in Africa.

Botswana is also famous for having the largest population of elephants in the world (estimated at over 120,000), and they can be seen migrating throughout the country. In addition, Botswana is home to almost 600 species of birds, including many unique and rare specimens.

  • The green season (December to March/April) provides exceptional opportunities to photograph the landscape of Botswana which has vivid colour variations, dense vegetation and good encounters in the Okavango Delta & Moremi Game Reserve.
  • The green season is also the best time of year to experience and explore the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Makgadikgadi & Nxai Pans National Parks where the second largest wildlife migration takes place annually.
  • The dry season (May/June to October) is normally considered the best time for game viewing, as the vegetation is not as dense and because it is then easier to view the animals when they come to the permanent water points for drinking.
You will benefit from lower rates in our camps and safaris during the green season, which is from December through to March, and also for the shoulder seasons (April to June & November). To better understand seasons in the region, please check our safari seasons information.
