Opulent Africa Ltd are a UK based Luxury Safari Operator.

A Safari in Botswana conjures up images of secluded pristine wilderness with abundant and varied habitats just waiting to be explored. This exploration can take place in a game vehicle, on foot,, by boat along the winding waterways or by Mekoro (a traditional style canoe). The avid horserider can set out across the plains or you can even explore whilst sat astride the shoulders of a majestic elephant. Botswana safaris are rich in diversity both in the game that you are likely to see and also the safari activities in which you can partake.

Selecting the best place in Botswana for your safari, the right location and camp in which to centre your stay very much depends on season and budget and in order to get the most from your stay it is important to discuss this with your safari tour operator. Once this aspect has been established for your safari in Botswana, your itinerary will provide you with a superb combination of scenery, game and a true sense of privacy and an exclusive yet traditional experience under canvas.

Memories made on a Botswana Safari are likely to consist of hippo bobbing up and down and grunting in the Okavango Delta waterways, and the elephant bathing, drinking and playing in the Chobe river and the open flat flood plains at Duba plains which support a wonderfully varied assortment of game. Land locked Botswana is a treasure chest of gems just waiting to be opened, the twinkling reed lined Okavango Delta channels merge together to form an intricate web of waterways to be ventured through.

The dense populations of elephant, zebra, magnificent looking sable and roan antelopes in the Linyanti region. The infamous Chobe National Park which enjoys some enviable game concentrations in Africa, primarily the huge herds of Kalahari elephants, which are thought to be the planets largest elephant population at approximately 120 000 in number. The contrasting Makgadikgadi pans which form a panorama of shimmering white sand and salt. During the rainy season the pans support one of Africa's prime populations of zebra and countless springbok and wildebeest which are always trailed closely by the big cats which makes the Makgadikgadi Pans tremendous for game viewing. The pans of course attract numerous birdlife and the great numbers of breeding colonies of flamingos seen here as a pink mist on the horizon.

A safari in Botswana is usually optimal during the months from April to October this is true with regards to both climate and game viewing. During this time the animals crowd around the natural waterholes and the borehole fed dams. Although these months in Botswana maybe thought of as perhaps the best Botswana is reliably an all year round destination for a luxury with the wet and shoulder seasons still hosting excellent game opportunities and value for money.

Botswana has stunning varied topography, wide ranging safari activities and some of the best safari camps providing comfort under canvas, all of this together makes a Botswana safari a very sought after holiday. Add together the fact that Botswana's camps have a small number of tents in order to preserve privacy and it quickly becomes clear why it is necessary to book well in advance, especially for the high season.

Botswana offers both, traditional safari camps or exclusive camps with a more luxury atmopshere. All of the camps that we suggest at Opulent Africa are in fabulous game viewing regions, providing you with a truly unforgettable safari experience. Relax in Botswana with knowledgeable guides, relaxed friendly hosting, large four poster beds, en-suite bathrooms, plunge pools and private terraces for the perfect private game viewing in the early mornings and evenings.
