The population density in Botswana is tiny: just 2 million people in a country significantly larger than Spain. The Botswanans want to keep it that way. They welcome the visitors they do have with open arms, but the development of private concessions is strictly regulated, and visitor numbers are limited.
The outcome of this policy protects Botswana’s natural environment and is perfect for conservation: the landscape is untouched and the wildlife unbothered by human presence. The rate of poaching is incredibly low, something definitely worthy of celebration.
When you safari with us in Botswana, you might well share an entire wildlife reserve or private concession with only a dozen or so other guests.
You’ll have a vehicle and guide to yourself, and will frequently spend an entire morning walking, canoeing, horseback riding, or driving without coming upon another person.
Renowned for its isolated camps in pristine environments, Botswana’s exclusivity can make it an expensive destination in peak season. That said, we think there is no off peak and the green season can be significantly more affordable; using our expertise, we can create an extraordinary safari year round.
