Just north of South Africa, Botswana is an adventure lover’s dream, and the opportunities for exploring this incredible country are endless: cycling safaris, camel riding, fishing expeditions, self-driving safaris, game viewing rides, even golf.
Contact Designer Active Holidays if you want to explore Botswana!
Rife with lush vegetation, the Okavango Delta is a vibrant animal habitat when the seasonal flooding occurs. Here, you can canter through the delta on horseback to see a wild game like giraffes, zebras, and hippos. Or, take a Mokoro, a shallow canoe traditionally carved from large, straight trees and powered by a guide who doubles as an oarsman, standing in the stern and guiding the canoe with a pole. In one of these, the delta is literally at your fingertips.
Explore the Kalahari on a quad bike and see the endless salt flats on the dry Botswanan savanna. Then, take a guided walking tour and learn all about the Basarwa culture and the way they make the most of the incredible natural resources at hand.
WHEN TO GO
With fantastic weather throughout the year, many opt to visit in April and May when the skies are clear, and the landscape is verdant. Check with us here at Designer Active Holidays, and we will work with you to determine when to go based on your agenda and interests.
