Brothers Safaris Destination of the month…..

There is nothing that inspires you like the prospect of escaping to a stunning destination, where you can soak up the summer sun, relaxing with friends, family or your loved one.  We happen to know the people to help you plan this holiday….

We can tailor-make your arrangements, and our consultant will offer suggestions to fit your interest and budget.

Botswana

Botswana is well known for having some of the best wilderness and wildlife areas on the African continent. With a full 38 percent of its total land area devoted to national parks, reserves and wildlife management areas – for the most part unfenced, allowing animals to roam wild and free – travel through many parts of the country has the feeling of moving through an immense Nature wonderland.

Experience here the stunning beauty of the world’s largest intact inland Delta – the Okavango; the unimaginable vastness of the world’s second largest game reserve – the Central Kalahari Game Reserve; the isolation and other-worldliness of the Makgadikgadi – uninhabited pans the size of Portugal; and the astoundingly prolific wildlife of the Chobe National Park.

Botswana is the last stronghold for a number of endangered bird and mammal species, including Wild Dog, Cheetah, Brown Hyena, Cape Vulture, Wattled Crane, Kori Bustard, and Pel’s Fishing Owl. This makes your safari experience even more memorable, and at times you will feel simply surrounded by wild animals.

The first – and most lasting impressions – will be of vast expanses of uninhabited wilderness stretching from horizon to horizon, the sensation of limitless space, astoundingly rich wildlife and bird viewing, night skies littered with stars and heavenly bodies of an unimaginable brilliance, and stunning sunsets of unearthly beauty.

As well, with more and more cultural tourism options on offer, you will be charmed by the people of Botswana, visiting their villages and experiencing first-hand their rich cultural heritage. But perhaps most of all, Botswana’s greatest gift is its ability to put us in touch with our natural selves. It offers that vital link so keenly felt by inhabitants of the developed world, a pervasive void we feel but often cannot name – our connectedness with Nature and the astonishing diversity of plants and animals to be explored.

Botswana Safari Packages

These Botswana safari packages vary between short 3-day Fly-in trips, to 12-day mobile camping safaris. With accommodation options that range from absolute opulence through deluxe style, to classic safari lodge and finally two-man domed tent.

Nowhere else in the world can you combine game viewing by air, land and water, and choose between indulgent opulence or rugged camping, in environments that range from wetland to desert… all in a relatively short space of time.

These are just some of the packages that Brothers Safaris has to offer, PLEASE note that we can book any camp or lodge in Botswana, in any budget ranger – 3 * to 5 *.

“I have loved no part of the world like this and I have loved no women as I love you. You’re my human Africa. I love your smell as I love these smells. I love your dark bush as I love the bush here, you change with the light as this place does, so that one all the time is loving something different and yet the same. I want to spill myself out into you as I want to die here.” ? Graham Greene, The End of the Affair
