Botswana is a country of striking natural contrasts – from the rich, verdant aquatic grasslands and crystal-clear waterways of the Okavango Delta and the broad Chobe River to the immense open spaces of the Kalahari Desert and Makgadikgadi Pans – an unforgettable combination of wilderness providing the visitor with a plethora of safari experiences.

Although much of the country is arid – the Kalahari is termed a “desert” but it is covered with grass and small trees – Botswana is home to some of the best game viewing areas in Africa. Lion, leopard, the largest population of elephant in the world, and a treasure-chest of antelope await awestruck visitors.

It is also a birders’ paradise with over 550 regularly occurring species. Botswana boasts the largest percentage of land formally protected for conservation in the world, a remarkable 31%.

Hartley’s Safaris have a very special relationship with Botswana – for over twenty six years, David Hartley, the founder of the company owned, and operated several lodges in the dazzling Okavango Delta. This enabled Hartley’s the privilege of gaining a deep insight and understanding of this magnificent country, its many camps, diversity of wildlife and habitats and vividly contrasting environments.

Over the years we have constantly drawn upon this invaluable knowledge to help us design and construct luxury safari holidays for our clients that fully complement and fulfil their individual needs, desires and expectations.
