BOTSWANA

Botswana is a country of diverse beauty and outstanding wildlife. From the channels of the Okavango Delta, the world’s only inland delta, to the banks of the Selinda Spillway teeming with elephants, to the vast salt pans of the Makgadikgadi, Botswana is filled with an array landscapes found nowhere else on earth and uniquely adapted flora and fauna. This varied landscape also lends itself to an array of ways to experience the country from wildlife drives, to bush walks to boating, all of which are available when staying with Great Plains Conservation.

Botswana is country for travellers who value remoteness and exclusivity, with vast tracts of pristine wilderness home to healthy wildlife populations and an often explosive mix of predator and prey. Great Plains Conservation’s camps in Botswana epitomise the wonder that the country has to offer. We have a number of camps and experiences spread across almost 400,000 acres of private, conserved land some of which is leased from communities and some of which was a former hunting concession converted and protected by Great Plains Conservation more than a decade ago.

Great Plains Conservation’s two private reserves – the Duba Plains Concession and the Selinda Reserve – offer guests the change to experience both the heart of the Okavango Delta as well as the unique Selinda region which links the Okavango and Linyanti river systems and forms part of an expansive migratory corridor that connects the Okavango Delta with the Chobe National Park. No Great Plains Conservation property in Botswana is larger than 6 rooms offering travellers unparalleled exclusive wildlife viewing access to these stunning and remote wilderness areas.
