Join us on a safari holiday to Botswana

With its lush, wild north and the arid Kalahari Desert in the south, Botswana is a land of extremes.

Bordered by Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Namibia at the spot the tributary Chobe river feeds into the mighty Zambezi, the country’s northern region thrums with impressive wildlife, as well as being home to vast savannas and grasslands where animals graze. 

The north of the country also has the highest concentration of African elephants in the world. On your Botswana safari holiday you’ll not only see these majestic creatures, but have the chance to spot countless rare birds, marvel at the African painted dog, and watch wildebeests charge around. Botswana tours are the best way to get to grips with all the must-see fauna this gorgeous country has to offer, and with your local guide you’ll be privy to the spots where the Big Five hang out.

Outside of animals, your Victoria Falls safari will deliver phenomenal views of dramatic landscapes, as well as a chance to sample the delicious local cuisine – a diverse set of meals that consist of everything from local game to vegan bean stews. With Newmarket Holidays, everything is planned out for you, so all you need to do to enjoy this adventure of a lifetime is book.
