Botswana

With an economy kick-started by the discovery of diamonds in the 1960s, a remarkably stable government, and a focus on top quality, low volume tourism Botswana offers one of the most authentic and mind-blowing wildlife experiences on the planet. It's virtually the same size as France, yet has a population of only 1.6 million, nearly half of whom are employed through safari tourism and wildlife conservation. A pristine wilderness environment ranging from the wetlands of the Okavango Delta to the arid Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, the land has been divided into vast private reserves that are leased out to top-notch safari companies who are obliged to train and employ local people and 'give back' to native communities, or the government, for the privilege of being there. This goes a long way in creating a happy, easy-going relationship between visitors and locals.

Just a quick note to let you know that we had a fantastic time in Botswana. The camps you chose were great with really knowledgeable guides and trackers - the whole experience far surpassed our expectations. We never realised that we would be able to get so close to the animals - the binoculars didn’t get used half as much as we had anticipated - a truly memorable holiday!

It was a wonderful holiday, we loved all the different settings of the camps. San Camp was the best though.
