Botswana

If you crave the thrill of a great safari, to not notice a few moving figures in the distance while sweating in the back of a tour car, but to truly be in touch with the wildlife and surrounds, there is nowhere that compares to the wild plains of Botswana. There is the Linyanti region, where you can watch as hundreds of buffalo run through the open fields, there’s the white shimmering salt pans of Makgadikgadi, and the unforgettable elephants of Chobe. The Chope Region is famous for having the highest concentration of wildlife on the African continent.

With a semi-arid climate, but high rainfall over the summer months, Botswana is usually a lush and colourful environment. The blazing African sun may feed the bountiful flora in the area, but calls for all visitors to slather on a layer of sunscreen and fit themselves with a wide sun hat. Entering Botswana is usually straightforward provided you are carrying a valid passport. Visas are available on arrival for most nationalities and are issued in no time. Get ready to dive into the real wild side, to come within touching distance of some of the famous ‘Big Five’ and live to tell the riveting tale.

As the sun sets and you begin to head back to civilisation, you can look forward to easing into sublime comfort with 5-star lodging and incomparable service. All in all, Botswana is a place that definitely needs to be on the bucket list.
