Hippos in Botswana


Botswana may have diamond-rich deserts but it is the shimmer of the Okavango Delta’s crystal clear water, the perplexing perspective of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and the sight of hundreds of majestic elephants in the Chobe National Park that make it a rare beauty. A country of wild variety, dramatic scenery and untamed parks, Botswana is one of Africa’s diamonds, and one to add to your travel radar for 2020.

Suggested itineraries

Best of Chobe with a four-night stay at Chobe Game Lodge which includes a multitude of experiences such as full-day trips to the remote parts of the park, exclusive lunch cruises on the Chobe River, cultural experiences with the local community, and a complimentary upgrade to the Luxury Suite with your own private infinity pool and spacious lounge.
