Regions of Botswana

Botswana’s diverse and unspoilt landscapes ensure it remains one of Africa’s top safari destinations. Its wetlands and rivers support some of the highest wildlife densities in Africa; its savannahs are the stage for big cats, wild dogs and dramatic migrations.

But Botswana is the size of France and its best safari destinations are scattered across the northern half of the country. Some regions of Botswana are at their best in the dry season; others during the green summer months. If you’re planning a Botswana safari, you’ll need to find out where to go for the kind of experience you want.
