VICTORIA FALLS TO THE OKAVANGO

Discover Botswana's unique wildlife environment with a stay at the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel and at a special boutique camp in the Okavango Delta

Botswana is a dry land-locked country roughly the size of France in central southern Africa sharing common borders with South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia. Its wildlife is of the very best in Africa and found in significant numbers in the Okavango Delta where large herds of buffalo and elephant as well as hippo, big cats, antelope, hyenas, hunting dogs and other game can be seen in abundance. It is also a paradise for ornithologists.

These safaris and the falls are rewarding experiences throughout the year. The dry season, between May and October, is the preferred time for safaris when animals are drawn to the permanent water and especially to the Chobe River. January to May offer the best flow of water through the falls (although some photographers prefer a later date with less spray!) and a green season when many animals have their young and the lush landscape is beautifully decorated with wild flowers.

The rhino that have been reintroduced into the Greater Okavango region move freely and sometimes follow the Gomoti river system, where the Dinare concession is located.
