Let A&S Signature Journeys plan your custom vacation to Botswana where you will have a unique experience of mokoro boat rides, where you glide peacefully in the water in total silence allowing you to get a little closer to the wildlife before they hear you coming.

Botswana covers an area of 213,488 square miles which is slightly smaller than Texas or the Transvaal and a little larger than France. It is situated on the southern African Plateau, bisected by the Tropic of Capricorn and is land-locked. It is surrounded by four other countries, the Republic of South Africa to the southeast, Namibia to the west, Zambia to the north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast. Nearly two-thirds of the international boundary is formed by rivers, although some of these are dry or flow only during the wet season.

A few of the most popular places in Botswana include: Chobe National Park, Kalahari Desert, Mashatu Game Reserve and Okavango Delta.
Famous for its populations of over 30,000 elephants, Chobe National Park allows visitors to get close to these magnificent animals by vehicle or by boat. Victoria Falls is within an hour’s drive of Chobe, where you can relax in elegant lodges and enjoy one of the great wonders of nature.
The Kalahari Desert is a mystical wide open space of flat, scrub desert which surprisingly has an abundance of wildlife. During the dry African winter (June to September) the animals are visible but in low concentrations. It is during the African summer (November to March) that this becomes a dramatically different place as the sporadic rain showers brings the desert alive with wildlife. Here you may see impressive black-maned lions, brown hyena, herds of eland antelope and cheetah among a wide range of other species.
If you are looking for a spectacular place to see some big game such as elephant, lion and leopard, Mashatu Game Reserve is the place to explore. With the beautiful traditional African safari lodge to stay at, Mashatu is an absolute gem that should be a priority on every traveler’s to do list in Africa. Many activities await such as night drives, stalking safaris, photographic hides, mountain biking, horse rides and much more.
The Okavango Delta is a safari icon, and in 2014 it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its unique habitat and remarkable wildlife densities. Its landscapes are awe-inspiring with yellow grasslands, pristine papyrus filtered rivers, ivory palm trees standing tall above the savanna’s, red sunset skies punctuated by fish eagle cries and great game viewing. It is a resilient system where drainage basins in Angola capture rain water in the African summer. However, because Botswana is so flat, it takes months for that water to make it down the Okavango River and flood into the Kalahari Desert. The timing is perfect because it brings water to the Kalahari during the dry season (May to October) and becomes a key attraction for wildlife at this time of year.
