Botswana Rated Africa’s Best Safari Destination of 2020

One of Africa’s top tour booking companies recently conducted an extensive survey based on the reviews of thousands of experts in the tourism industry to determine the best safari destination in Africa for 2020. The consistently top-rated destination, not surprisingly, is one that continues to provide some of the most amazing safari experiences on the planet – Botswana.

More than 4,000 reviews were analyzed in the comprehensive study conducted by ‘Safari Bookings’ and safari goers from all over the planet made valuable contributions. The analysis of reviews included reviews from many esteemed travel journalists, mainly guidebook writers who contribute regularly to Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Frommer’s, Bradt and Footprint.

Some of the comments received in the survey were accolades like “Botswana is the sort of place where even your average safari feels like stepping into a documentary by National Geographic, one where so many of the great dramas of the African wild are played out on a daily basis.” This according to Anthony Ham – Author for travel magazines and Lonely Planet guides.

Another from Emma Gregg, Author for Rough Guides, National Geographic Traveler and more, was “No other African country has such a rich mosaic of pristine habitats, from russet-colored dunes to glittering seasonal wetlands.”


So Why is Botswana Rated Africa’s Best Safari Country of 2020?

Firstly, it showcases many alternating landscapes. In the south you will find the Tuli Block and Mashatu Game Reserve, the Land of Giants, so named after the giant Baobab trees and elephants that call this vast adventure wilderness their home. Also experience the stark, arid beauty of the Kalahari Desert in the south, famed for its beautiful black-maned lions and other more elusive creatures. Travel north to the Chobe National Park renowned for the majestic Chobe River and its large herds of elephants as well as the Savuti Channel, renowned for its large populations of predators.

The Okavango Delta is world renowned for its wonderful winding waterways and its vast wilderness filled with some of Africa’s enigmatic wildlife and most elusive bird life. Adapted for a life in and out of water, the elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga antelope are found in this watery wilderness. Lion, cheetah, leopard and African wild dog share the floodplains with large herds of elephant and buffalo. Situated in the Eastern Delta, the Moremi Game Reserve is an excellent safari destination. The Reserve is one of the most spectacular wildlife conservancies in Botswana, where an abundance of wildlife moves around freely. The unique landscape features a unique mix of dry ecosystems as well as wetlands.

Travelling to Botswana for your safari will offer you the opportunity to experience unforgettable game-viewing from both land and water. This includes game drives in open 4×4 vehicles, bush walks, boat cruises and mokoro rides. Every destination will offer you a different kind of game-viewing experience and we recommend that you combine them for the most immersive Botswana safari experience.
