A true wonderland in Southern Africa, Botswana appears to have perfected the balance between tourism and conservation.
A higher cost, lower volume model has resulted in perks for the residents of Botswana (free education and healthcare), as well as a very intimate safari experience for those who seek luxury, remote wilderness and some of Africa’s most undisturbed game viewing. Not without its safari-planning challenges, much of Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Makgadikgadi Pan is highly seasonal and it takes a Travel Guru to make sure you end up in the right camp at the right place at the right time.
Zambia’s Victoria Falls and the gateway town of Maun provide easy access to the Chobe National Park and the Delta. There’s no shortage of once-in-a-lifetime experiences in Botswana, but most are only accessible with the guidance of a Travel Guru.
