Mention Botswana and two things readily spring to mind: outstanding safari and ultimate luxury. These are both delivered with resounding success, but also seemingly with ease, making it the perfect destination for a totally carefree safari. The majority of accommodation on offer in Botswana is tent-based due to strict eco-friendly regulations: if the camps are ever required to move then they leave nothing behind. When we say tents though, we mean rather more of a canvas castle – nothing quite prepares you for stepping into your first safari tent.

A Botswanan safari is diverse in so many ways. The arid, dusty Kalahari plains cover vast swathes of the country, giving way to savannah grasslands, lush green forests and streams in the north while the wending sapphire waters of the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta, are home to a wide array of animals that have all adapted to live in this remarkable landscape. The stark, lunar landscape of the Makgadikgadi Pans is one of the most unique safari experiences on the continent;walk with San bushmen, quad bike over the eerie salt pan, frolic with semi-habituated meerkat, or search for the elusive brown hyena. The Moremi Game Reserve is considered to be one of the best game reserves in the whole of Africa, and once you witness the sheer numbers of wildlife (particularly big cats) here we think you will whole-heartedly agree. Cap this off with a simply spectacular sunset boat cruise on the Chobe River, cruising alongside elephants and hippos and you will leave (if you can) with an overwhelming array of surreal memories.

Botswana with A&K

Now this is an emergency. An A&K emergency. As our guests watched a family of bathing elephants in Botswana’s tannin-hued Okavango Delta they noticed the calm confident guide making a slightly agitated,surreptitious radio call. Were they in danger?

‘No,’ the guide assured them. ‘Everything’s under control.’ He wasn’t bluffing. A few minutes later, a motor launch rounded the river bend and sped towards them, before its driver, with James Bond panache, lobbed a couple of limes to the guide. Crisis averted. Sunset G&T could now be served with ice and a slice.

  • Day2 - 3
    Welcome to wild and wonderful Botswana. After a short flight from Johannesburg to Kasane and on to the sophisti-cated Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero lodge, you'll be deep in this sensational safari destination. Chobe National Park is one of the country's finest, bursting with wildlife, much of which is drawn to the life-giving river. The lodge – which has a split-level pool, gourmet food and a modern spa – is perfectly placed, overlooking the hippo-filled waterway, the teeming flood plains and the endless wilderness beyond. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero
  • Day3 - 4
    Explore Chobe in all its moods. Head out early in an open-sided vehicle to seen the rising sun set the park aglow and catch the animals at their most active. Chobe is famous for its large concentrations of elephant – around 50,000 roam here – as well as herds of buffalo and plenty more besides. In the late afternoon hop aboard a double-decker boat to float amid crocodiles, hippos and a startling range of birds, and sip a sundowner or two. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero
  • Day4 - 5
    Fly to the heart of the Okavango: Moremi Game Reserve – known as the 'predator capital of Africa' – protects a lush jumble of lagoons, flooded pans and sweeping grasslands in this unparalleled wildlife haven. And perhaps the finest game-viewing spot of all is Chief's Island – seasonally surrounded by either glittering waters or grassy plains. Here, the exclusive Sanctuary Chief's Camp –a cluster of 12 luxurious, private bush pavilions – will be your home for three nights. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Sanctuary Chief's Camp
  • Day5 - 7
    Raised above the surrounding wilderness, Sanctuary Chief's Camp is the ideal HQ for forays in the Moremi. Animals are abundant, including rarer species such as cheetah, leopard and even wild dogs. Morning and evening game drives and – if the water's high – trips by traditional mokoro canoe, will reveal Botswana at its best. Sanctuary Chief's Camp I Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Sanctuary Chief's Camp
  • Day7 - 8
    The Okavango Delta is vast, and different areas have different characters. A short air transfer lands you in a particularly beautiful sweep of it, between Moremi and the delta's permanent waters; being outside the national parks means walking safaris are permitted, enabling the closest encounters with the bush. Choose to stay at waterhole-side Sanctuary Baines' Camp, which has just five rooms, or Sanctuary Stanley's Camp, an eight-tent lodge at the heart of a private concession – both deliver full immersion in this matchless wilderness. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Sanctuary Baines' Camp or Sanctuary Stanley's Camp
  • Day8 - 9
    From the balcony of your private tent – or even the comfort of your four-poster, which can be rolled onto the deck for a night under the stars – listen to the Delta begin to wake. Then plunge into the action: game drives, mokoro trips and walking safaris are frequently full of buffalo, elephant, giraffe and lion. For something special, head out on foot with a herd of semi-habituated elephants, gaining unprecedented insight into the lives of these African giants. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Sanctuary Baines' Camp or Sanctuary Stanley's Camp
  • Day9
    Gaze down on the drama of the Delta one last time on the short flight to Maun. Here, a flight to Johannesburg will connect with your overnight flight back to the UK.
