See the big name attractions of southern Africa – Vic Falls, Chobe and the Okavango Delta
Containing in its borders the world's largest salt pans, inland delta and number of elephants, Botswana has plenty to boast about. And, happily for visitors, the country knows it. 38% of the country's landscape – which encompasses everything from savanna to swamp to the sands of the Kalahari – is protected and the travel infrastructure is among the very best in Africa. Taking in also Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls and Namibia's Zambezi region, this trip celebrates both the natural and cultural highlights of Botswana. Stay in a lodge overlooking a watering hole frequented by elephants. Jump in jeeps and set out on game drives in Chobe National Park. Paddle through the Okavango Delta in a traditional dug out canoe, and be welcomed into the villages of native Bushmen. If it's a diversity of landscapes, wildlife and cultures you're after, this is the trip.

This itinerary features some long travel days which can be exacerbated by bumpy African roads.
Botswana temperatures rise in the hot dry period of September and October before the rains hit and temperatures can get as high as 34-38°C. Not all accommodation will have air-conditioning. This is quite common across Africa, particularly in remote locations where lodges or camps operate on solar power or generators.
Botswana is a very seasonal destination. What you see and experience can differ quite dramatically depending on the time of year you visit. Please consider this before you choose your departure date. See the 'Climate and Seasonal' section for more details.
As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.

Transport vehicle was not the best. Great locations, basic lodges were far more than basic, had amazing experiences in tree houses, tented camps over Okavango delta and around elephant sands watering hole. Friendly staff that 100% added to and got involved with the experience

The Botswana Highlights trip involves a lot of driving, but the experience is outstanding! The wildlife, scenery and local people make this trip very special and you will want to return to Africa after this short taster. Vietnam, Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh is the trip of a lifetime with the perfect balance of culture, wow-factor and fantastic food!
