 Botswana 

How big is Botswana?

Botswana, with lots of wide-open spaces and wildlife to fill them, is one of Africa's best examples of where the adventuresome safari spirit still survives.  Travelers on safari in Botswana will see an amazing range of animals in the wild: lazing in the waters of the Okavango Delta (Moremi Game Reserve), grazing on the grasslands of Chobe National Park and tracking the arid salt pans of the Kalaharai Desert.  

 

Botswana is passionate about conservation, and its legendary big game goes hand-in-hand wiht its admirable conservation record.  Once a hunting mecca for the so-called Great White Hunters (i.e. Ernest Hemingway), shooting now is with cameras, not rifles.  The government effectively banned all commerical hunting on nonprivately owned land in 2014.

TRADITIONAL BOMA DINNER

A unique way to dine when on safari is having at least one dinner a boma.  The fort-type structure was orginally used by African tribesmaen as a livestock enclosure for protection from predators.  Today many safari camps use the area as a place to gather in evening celebration where they share traditional dishes, cultures, customs and music.

When is the best time to visit Botswana?

Most of the guide books and online resources answer this question by taking into account one major factor- weather.  While weather is may be important, there are so many other considerations to keep in mind.  We believe there is always a good time to visit Botswana.  It just depends on what you feel are the most important factors.  At Pique, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach.  We listen to our clients and help them design the experience that is right for them.  To help illustrate our deep expertise we have created the "Best Time To Go" to Botswana chart below that draws upon our unique knowledge designing trips to Africa.
