Botswana has built an enviable reputation as a destination that offers not only fantastic wildlife sightings and beautiful landscapes but also excellent service, incredible guiding and some of the most gorgeous lodges in Africa. In fact, Maun is the only town in the world that is pretty much 100% dedicated to safari. It’s your likely entry point to a world of glistening oxbow lakes, baobabs rising from an almost lunar environment and red lechwe splashing through water.
But Botswana doesn’t rest on its laurels. Lodges and camps are constantly finding new ways to delight guests with activities found nowhere else. You can head out at dawn to interact with habituated meerkats, spend the afternoon exploring on quad bikes and then pass the night in one of the country’s incredible skybeds.
