Botswana is Africa’s best-kept secret and home to some of the finest and most pristine wilderness areas in the world.

Botswana is Africa's greatest safari success story. The country is blessed with a stable government, magnificent game reserves and national parks offering the most exclusive safari experiences on the continent. The government banned all forms of hunting in September 2013 and it remains focused on delivering the finest and most authentic wildlife experience. Most of the safari camps that A to A Safaris recommends are located in exclusive and private reserves.

From its wetland paradise the Okavango Delta to the plains and woodlands of the Linyanti and Selinda, to the vast emptiness of the Makgadikgadi Pans and the endless Kalahari desert, Botswana offers guests a diverse and well rounded safari for both first-timers and veterans. Safari activities range from heart-stopping game drives in some of the richest big game areas in Africa to canoeing peacefully along the channels of the world's largest inland river delta.

The magnificent Okavango Delta fans out across the northwestern corner of the country and creates a paradise of islands and lagoons teeming with wildlife and birds. This miraculous creation spills for more that 7,000 square miles across the northern Kalahari, creating a vast oasis of crystal clear lagoons, waterways and palm fringed islands. This oasis contains one of the densest populations of big game on the continent – especially lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and the endangered African wild dog.


The world's largest diamond was the Cullinan, found in South Africa in 1905. It weighed 3,106.75 carats uncut. It was cut into the Great Star of Africa, weighing 530.2 carats; the Lesser Star of Africa, which weighs 317.40 carats, and 104 other diamonds of nearly flawless colour and clarity. They now form part of the British crown jewels.
