Best of Botswana

Sparsely populated Botswana protects some of Africa's largest areas of wilderness - it is a vast, land locked country in Southern Africa with many game parks and reserves - tightly-controlled and often upmarket these are a mecca for game viewing.

 

Botswana’s landscape is defined by the Kalahari Desert and the Okavango Delta which becomes a lush animal habitat during the seasonal floods whilst the massive Central Kalahari Game Reserve, with its fossilized river valleys and undulating grasslands, is home to lions, elephants, buffaloes, hippos, leopards, giraffes, cheetahs and over 450 species of birds.  The country is one of the most popular and exclusive Safari destinations and our Travel Partner, Travelpack, provide a programme of amazing experiences for you to enjoy the very best this country, with its diverse scenery, eco-systems and iconic game, has to offer.

Botswana is one of the very few countries that have bushmen tribes who are still practicing the primitive way of life, masters in hunting, tracking and  wearing animal skins, their life style revolves around moving to pastures where food is in abundance.  This provides an unique understanding of their way of life and an experience which together with the stunning beauty, the unimaginable vastness, isolation and the prolific wildlife makes Botswana the best kept African secret.

The Okavango Delta, situated within the heart of the newly declared World Heritage site, has a choice of upmarket lodges that are designed for the best holiday experiences and a short flight from Maun Airport takes you into the heart of the delta.   A delta safari will not disappoint you with its amazing boat game viewing where you can explore the intricate watery canals by mokoro – a dug out wooden canoe that is made from the sausage tree and used to navigate past birdlife, hippos and crocodiles or traverse the golden grasslands in search of the Big Five by vehicle.

Luxury safari camps and lodges are common and one such lodge Travelpack has to offer on a 5 night All Inclusive Package is the 5*  &Beyond Xudum Okavango Delta with its unique rooftop hideouts in each of nine private African safari suites which overlook a seasonal lagoon providing the perfect counterpoint to the natural bounty of this game-rich landscape.

No trip to Botswana is complete without going to the Chobe National Park to watch the big herds converge onto the river front.  In the dry season herds of animals come down to drink from the Chobe river.  This was one of my most memorable experiences as when on safari some years ago the sight of these herds approaching the water actually looked as if the earth was moving!!

You will have the opportunity see every species in large numbers as Chobe boasts one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Africa.  A morning game drive giving you the chance to see the cats and the late afternoon boat cruise giving you the chance to take pictures from a close range.

Here, Travelpack, feature the only permanent game lodge situated within the National Park.   Chobe Game Lodge is Botswana’s premier venue for guests looking for a perfect base from which to explore the National Park and the Chobe River. Full ecotourism certification by Botswana Tourism Organisation. Chobe Game Lodge has 47 rooms, all of which are river facing and air-conditioned, featuring overhead fans, complimentary mini bar, en-suite bathrooms and a private terrace.
