BOTSWANA

 

Botswana remains one of the greatest wilderness areas in Africa. With vast stretching wildlands and an abundance of wildlife roaming freely across its massive protected areas, Botswana offers one of the most unique safari experiences in Africa.

In central Botswana, the more barren region knows as the Kalahari creates a stark contrast to the Delta. It's dry shrublands dot the landscape as far as one can see, while in between the mighty creatures of Africa survive even the harshest of conditions. 

In the Okavango Delta, the seasonal drying out, and subsequent flooding of the region create ever-changing islands where life springs into motion. Here, massive groves, grasslands, floodplains, and canals hide all manner of Africa's favourite creatures. 

Following is a list of our favourite lodges in the Kalahari.

Dinaka

Surrounded by picturesque desert shrublands, Dinaka provides a unique wilderness experience of one of the lesser-known treasures of Southern Africa, the Kalahari Desert. Dinaka brilliantly blends into its environment through a classic wood and thatch design highlighted by luxury throughout. 

Small, intimate and secluded, Dinaka conjures a sense of true wilderness in a far off-world. While its exceptional hospitality, cuisine and comforts ensure that every need is met with joy and grace. Expert guides lead guests through a desert of incredible natural diversity easily missed by the untrained eye, and share their abundance of knowledge passionately. 

On-suite luxury tents for couples and families are available. Each suite is raised from the ground for a better view of the surrounding wilds and provide wonderful comfort. Additionally, the more adventurous travellers can delight in a night spent on the private sleepout deck for an even more immersive experience.
