Carrier Sales Consultant, Steph Bates, explains why Botswana is one of her new safari favourites.
Botswana is a superb safari destination. I could wax lyrical about the amazing game you can see there, but I really want to share some of the other reasons why I think that Botswana is great choice for a safari.
If you're looking for a luxury safari holiday of real quality, Botswana should be a frontrunner - the standard of the lodges is exceptional, as is the food.
The income generated from tourism is completely re-invested back into the country and its communities.
At many of the lodges, there is a big focus on education - great for those with a thirst for knowledge and who want to learn about conservation and local culture.
4/ Land and water
Thanks to Botswana's diverse geography, the habitats are extremely varied, providing the perfect setting for exceptional game-viewing.
5/ African wild
Northern Botswana is one of the few places on earth to see the remaining populations of this endangered species.
