Sleep in the wilderness in a luxury tented camp or a five star lodge and appreciate the stunning skyline wherever you are in Botswana. Make sure you visit the Kalahari Desert, a huge semi-arid land mass, which has some of the best safaris in all of Africa. Track the black-maned lion and spend your evenings exploring the bush and trying to glimpse the elusive aardvark in the Okavango.

For the most memorable experience, sleep out under the stars and watch the sun rise in the early morning before heading into the bush again. Botswana is teeming with the Big Five, so look out for lions, cheetahs, zebras, wild dogs and even hippos while you’re there.

Listed below are some of our favourite safari lodges in Botswana – be they in the Okavango Desert, Kwando or the Kalahari.
