As well as being a premier safari destination, Botswana is characterised by offering some of the most diverse and unique experiences. Here we give our rundown of the eight most exciting activities to do around Botswana to really make the most of your time here…
Widely-regarded as one of Africa’s premier safari destinations, Botswana is a wildlife enthusiasts’ haven offering some of the best game viewing on the Continent. One of the key aspects that really sets Botswana apart is the diversity of experience on offer, in large part because of the unique environments that there are to explore, with the <a style="color: #f2b618;" href="https://www.imaginetravel.com/imagine-africa/holiday-destination/botswana/places/okavango-delta-and-moremi" target="_blank">Okavango Delta</a> being one of the most impressive wildlife habitats in the world which can be explored by a variety of methods – whether on foot, by vehicle or on a boat cruise and the - recently becoming UNESCO’s 1000th World Heritage Site – whilst <a style="color: #f2b618;" href="https://www.imaginetravel.com/imagine-africa/holiday-destination/botswana/places/makgadikgadi" target="_blank">Makgadikgadi</a> offers a truly unique landscape as the largest salt pan in the world, with game viewing to match.
Our Botswana expert Anton had a unique experience up close and personal with elephants in the Okavango Delta, here he shares his tale of ‘Living with Elephants’.
Botswana has long held the crown of being Africa’s premier safari destination and attracts many with the diversity of safari activities on offer, with traditional mokoro canoes used as well as vehicles for wildlife viewing. Here our Botswana specialist Emma shows why getting out on foot is one of the most exciting ways to experience the Okavango Delta.
The Okavango Delta offers one of most exceptional safari experiences on the continent with a range of activities. Whilst we never fail to be wowed by the Delta no matter what time of year we visit, water levels do have a direct impact on the activities and game viewing experience on offer. The rains and resultant flood vary year-on-year but the below can be used as a rough guide as to what to expect through the seasons.
Botswana’s raw beauty will always be a massive draw for anyone seeking a true wilderness experience in Africa. Well known for its density of game and wildlife and the largest inland delta in the world, Botswana is often at the top of many peoples' list when seeking a safari in Africa yet competitive prices keep Botswana exclusive and untouched.
As arguably the most exciting African country to go on safari, Botswana offers one of the greatest diversities of safari activities with game drives, bush walks, mokoros and motor boats amongst the most popular. Here our Botswana specialist, Annie, makes the case for why exploring the Botswanan bush on horseback should be top of your list.
One of the most elusive animals on the continent, spotting wild dogs is the top of many safari aficionados’ list. Our Botswana expert Anton is no exception – here he recounts his much sought-after experience on his recent trip to Botswana.

A safari holiday combining the magnificent Victoria Falls with the best of Botswana. This safari is unlikely to be matched in terms of quality of service, standard of camps and potential game viewing opportunities. Each destination takes in a different environment and style of accommodation which is what we love about this itinerary.
In just 10 nights you will take in the thundering Falls, the elephant highway that is the Chobe River, the untouched Selinda Spillway and the infamous Okavango Delta. Logistically this itinerary flows superbly and the chance to take on a series of light aircraft flights over the magical waterways of the Okavango Delta is a joy to behold.
