Solo Travel Destination Botswana Safari: Botswana is located in southern Africa. Bordered by Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia, the world’s top diamond producer also has relatively untouched wildlife preserves. Its destination for tourists is sometimes overshadowed by neighboring South Africa or farther northeast Kenya. However, it has much to offer. It has vast savannahs with wildlife waiting for your arrival. Having “glamped” in the Okavango, I can personally attest that this was one of the top trips of my lifetime.
Mountain Travel Sobek leads this 10 day luxury safari in Southern Africa’s gem, Botswana.
Starting in 1982, MTS was one of the first US tour operators in Botswana. The trip will take you by private charter flights while relaxing at night in a luxury tent with bathrooms and individual verandas.
On this thrilling safari, take in Botswana’s incredible scenery and diverse wildlife by hopping on charter flights. Explore spectacular wilderness parks and game reserves – such as the Kalahari Desert, Okavango Delta, Moremi, and Linyanti – on mokoro canoe rides and four-wheel drives. After days of shadowing lion prides and zebra herds, relax on private verandas of tented luxury camps. Relish in hikes through tropical vegetation, rafting on the Zambezi River, elephant-back rides, and micro-flights over pristine cascades. Extend your journey to Victoria Falls – one of Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
