Travel to Botswana

Botswana has a high-end, low-volume safari philosophy and a population of only 1.6 million people in a country the size of Texas. A full 40% of its land is dedicated to national parks and wildlife reserves, where you’ll find a variety of luxury safari camps. Botswana safaris provide guests the highest ratio of wildlife area per visitor in Africa, an average of 9,800 acres per bed.
