Holidays to Botswana with If Only

In the landlocked country of Botswana in southern Africa, the remarkable wildlife outnumbers people. Indeed, as one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, and with a strong commitment to conservation, elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, hippos and more roam the vast landscape, where national parks and reserves allow them to thrive. Unique scenery reveals the thrilling array of animals: the shimmering expanse of its world-famous inland delta, the Okavango; the riverfront vistas of Chobe National Park with its abundant elephant population; the semi-arid wilds of the Kalahari Desert; and the impressive Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where shifting seasons change the lunar-like landscape of the dry season into a temporary wetland perfect for migratory birds once the rains arrive. With such spectacular scenery and fantastic wildlife, it’s no surprise that Botswana is firmly established as a leading luxury safari holiday destination, while the country’s safe and welcoming culture is a further draw.

Chobe National Park

Chobe National Park

With its northern border running alongside the river it takes its name from, Chobe National Park is home to the world’s largest concentration of African elephants. During the dry season, thousands of elephants gather along the riverbanks, the water a welcome haven for them. Boat safaris offer a fantastic opportunity to see these majestic mammals up close, whilst game drives amongst the grasslands, woods and savannas add to the excitement.

Home to endangered species including African wild dogs

Botswana’s ecological ethos and the creation of vast, protected national parks and wildlife reserves has supported the survival of a significant African wild dog population. Likely to have some of the highest numbers of this endangered carnivore in Africa, the country has been integral to the conservation of the species, a unique and valuable breed that is essential for maintaining biodiversity in the African wilderness.

Useful Information

When To Visit

Botswana's dry season, from May to October, is considered the best time to visit with minimal rainfall and warm, sunny days. During this time, water levels in the Okavango Delta are at their highest making it easy to explore the network of waterways. November to April is the green season with wet, rainy weather. The landscape becomes lush and green and this is a good time for birdwatchers to visit, as a variety of migratory birds arrive into the region. However, the rain can make travelling around the country challenging and it may be harder to spot wildlife as animals disperse across wider areas due to the abundant food and water sources.
