Botswana is sought after by tourists from across the globe. Lonely Planet describes Botswana as “Blessed with some of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth, Botswana is one of the great safari destinations in Africa”. It is also a country growing in stature with a secure economy and political stability.

Here’s a guide on where to honour Botswana’s heritage.
1. Visit Botswana’s first national park
Kasane’s oldest tourism offering, Chobe Safari Lodge is a landmark establishment on the border of Botswana’s first and oldest national park. Following the successful and prosperous tourism appeal of the Kruger National Park, the vast lands of the Chobe district were officially declared as a non-hunting zone in 1932 by the resident commissioner, Charles Rey, in then-Bechuanaland. However, the area was proclaimed a national park just one year after independence in 1967.
Chobe Safari Lodge has helped travellers explore Chobe National Park for 60 years. Set up to overlook the charming Chobe riverfront, this lodge is the only one in town sharing a border with Chobe National Park.

2. Explore Botswana’s blessed UNESCO World Heritage
The Okavango Delta is one of the best places in the world to go on safari and was declared the Earth’s 1000th UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014.
Each of our Okavango Delta camps is situated in a private concession, offering an exclusive safari experience with a light-on-the-earth footprint.
Meander by Mokoro at Moremi Crossing
Eco-friendly Moremi Crossing rests below tall palm trees in the Okavango Delta. It’s islanded for most of the year when water, flowing south from the highlands of Angola, fills the swampy floodplains. This incredible annual descent of water makes Moremi Crossing an ideal destination for boating and walking safaris.

Celebrate in Style at Mma Dinare
An intimate, relaxed camp, Mma Dinare comprises just eight tents that all share a jaw-dropping communal deck, outdoor firepit and dining area with views that make the most of the abundant Gomoti River that flows right past. Parades of elephant are regular visitors to these scenic floodplains, as are Red Lechwe and, of course, enormous buffalo herds.
Bordering the open plains of the Moremi Game Reserve, guests can expect plenty of wonderful wildlife sightings. Predators, such as jackal, leopard and prides of lion are regularly spotted and the Dinare concession is a known hotspot for seeing African Wild Dogs.

3. Make for Makgadkigkadi, the motherland
A recent study of mitochondrial DNA states that the mother of all modern humans originated in northern Botswana 200,000 years ago. The Makgadkikgadi might very well be our motherland!
Located within this unique environment, Nata Lodge provides a shady refuge while still blending naturally into its surroundings. Luxury chalets and camping tents balance out the preferences of different types of travellers. The main areas, such as the swimming pool and bar, are spaces to relax and reflect on the day out on the pan or meet others.
