Botswana’s vast wilderness areas and abundant wildlife have long kept the country high on the safari bucket list. In the northwest, the Okavango’s mosaic of islands and waterways is a magnet to huge seasonal herds of big game while, to the northeast, Chobe National Park hosts a similar spectacle along its waterfront. Wildlife movements between the two also take in the adjoining Kwando and Linyanti areas, where private concessions offer an exclusive safari experience. To the south, the thirst-lands and salt pans of the Kalahari draw seasonal grazers and protect unusual semi-desert fauna. Elsewhere, attractions include the rugged Tuli Block, in the southeast, and the sandy Kalagadi Transfrontier Park to the south. Safaris here don’t generally come cheap, but the rewards are spectacular.

Namibia’s natural beauty is absolutely astounding. Untamed landscapes – some shaped by the wind, others by geological forces – often seem to reach out into infinity, while others end abruptly at the feet of rugged mountains or the wild waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Sand, in all shades of rust, moves with the air and creates shifting dunes; rivers weave lush green ribbons through desolate gravel plains; and extensive tracts of open spaces allow you to truly disconnect from the outside world. From bucket-list encounters with vast herds of wildlife to that exhilaration of running down a sand dune – there really is something magical about this remarkable country.

Zimbabwe is, potentially, one of Africa’s top wildlife destinations. Blessed with large herds of elephant and other big game, plus specialities such as wild dogs and sable antelope, it also has some of Africa’s most impressive landscapes, from the thunderous majesty of Victoria Falls to the granite moonscape of Matabo Hills. The country’s relatively low safari profile reflects decades of political turmoil. Since the departure of former president Robert Mugabe in 2017, however, tourism has been reinvigorated. While some parks have undeniably suffered neglect, a clutch of new private operators and conservation initiatives suggest a promising future.
