One of the best adventure and safari destinations, Botswana offers incredible natural beauties as well as some excellent luxury tours, hotels and resorts. The Okavango Delta, Kalahari Desert or Chobe National Park are just a few of Botswana’s top attractions, and they each offer thousands of miles of amazingly diverse wilderness. But acknowledging Botswana as a top safari destination does not imply that military-style safari campgrounds and modest inns are all there is to find in terms of accommodation. In fact, the country offers some very fancy safari lodges, as well as five-star game resorts, which make luxury travel in Botswana both available and desirable:

The camps can vary a lot in terms of the amenities they offer, from minimalistic ones (private tent+outside shower and patio) to more sophisticated ones (which might include a pool or spa), and can be booked separately or as part of a tour. Such camps can be found in Okavango Delta – Chitabe Camp, Tubu Tree Camp, Selinda Camp, Chief’s Camp; Chobe National Park – Kings Pool Camp; as well as in other touristic areas.
