Botswana is one of our two preferred safari destinations. This is due to Botswana recently banning trophy hunting. Many of Botswana’s private concessions have seen an explosion of wildlife in the absence of hunting. The conservation model in Botswana is working and other countries should follow Botswana’s path. First Light Safaris is delighted to be working with our Botswana partners in providing world class safari experiences.
Considered one of the top safari destinations in Africa with incredible diversity of both wildlife and landscapes. Approximately 1/3 of all elephants that remain in Africa can be found in Botswana. African wild dog are frequently seen. Additionally, large prides of lions and healthy leopard and cheetah populations await the safari traveler. The unique and wildlife rich areas include the Okavango Delta, Linyanti/Selinda/Kwando region, Moremi Game Reserve, Chobe National Park, and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (famous for black-maned lions). With over a third of the country set aside for wildlife, Botswana is trophy free and should be at the top of your safari bucket list.
