Witness African wildlife in the most pristine wilderness setting on the planet.
– Deborah Calmeyer, Founder and CEO, ROAR AFRICA
A Botswana luxury safari with ROAR AFRICA delivers you deep into the Okavango Delta – our planet’s largest inland delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, hugged by the thirsty Kalahari Desert. This extraordinary landscape, so far removed from the bustle of daily life, is a true paradise. It’s also home to some the most exclusive, spectacularly designed safari lodges on the continent, like Mombo and Xigera.
You’ll find many of the world’s most endangered species, including lions, giraffes, wild dogs, and hundreds of species of birds roaming, roaring, and flying throughout Botswana’s 10,563 miles of lush floodplain. With us, you can experience the delta’s wild magic from every angle in unbridled comfort and luxury - by land in open-air safari vehicles, by water in mokoros, and from the air in helicopters. This is Africa on steroids.
Further south we’ll unlock the sheer wonder of the Kalahari, a semi-desert covering some 350,000 square miles. Here, led by our expert ROAR AFRICA guides, you’ll track huge herds of elephants by day and sleep under a canopy of stars and ancient baobabs by night. Botswana is home to the incredible Makgadikgadi Pans, one of the largest salt flats in the world and a critical habitat for migrating wildebeest, Africa’s biggest zebra population, and flamboyant pink flamingos.
Totally unspoiled and untamed, this unique country’s vast tracts of wilderness, teeming with wildlife set the scene for an inimitable safari experience. There’s simply nowhere else on earth like Botswana. And no one has the insider access to this extraordinary landscape like we do.
Botswana is renowned for its privacy, beauty, safety, and unique ability to experience an ultra-luxe African safari on land and water.
