Destination Overview

About Botswana

Fall in love with Botswana’s jewel in the crown, the incomparable Okavango Delta - a vast oasis in the heart of the Kalahari Desert - a real-life Garden of Eden and wildlife paradise.

It is accessible only by light aircraft, so visitors who fly into any one of several private, beautifully-appointed eco-camps find themselves surrounded only by myriad wild animals - not other people.

Thomson Experiences in Botswana

MULTI-GENERATIONAL
Traveling the world with your family is like sharing a box filled with presents. The box is the world itself and the presents are the bonds that form through the experiences we share, and the perspective, patience, understanding, and tolerance we gain from expanding our horizons and seeing how other people live. There is no greater gift.
PHOTOGRAPHY
As wildlife photography destinations go, Botswana’s Okavango Delta is as close to a guarantee as the world has to offer. Whether you’re shooting on foot, within a private blind, a jeep, or dugout canoe, the animals are everywhere. The rest is up to you.
WILDLIFE
As pure wildlife spectacles go, nothing compares to Africa. It’s not even close! And, along with the Maasai Mara, the Serengeti, and the Ngorongoro Crater, Botswana’s Okavango Delta is among the best of the best.
