EPIC Botswana

Africa’s last remaining pristine wilderness areas

EPIC JOURNEYS

Botswana

Botswana is considered one of the prime safari destinations in Africa offering superb uncontrived game viewing in a pristine wilderness environment.

Historically, most tailored safaris in Botswana range between 10 to 12 nights incorporating a range of habitats to deliver a diversity of experiences. In addition to land based activities (night and day game-drives and walks), the water dimension enables the inclusion of boating and mokoros (traditional dugout canoe). 

To experience the Okavango and its immediate environs (time pending), you should look to incorporate three different habitats in a safari; savannah, seasonal delta and a permanent water habitat.

Being centrally located within southern African, Botswana is proximal to other countries in the region and can be combined with Victoria Falls, Zambia or Zimbabwe, luxury lodges in South Africa as well as Cape Town.
