For those with even the slightest active inclination, walking safaris are one of the best ways to see the great wildlife of Botswana.

Botswana has a truly diverse terrain, making walking through it even more exciting and varied. Whether in the grasslands of the Kalahari, the lunar-like expanse of the Makgadikgadi Pans or the floodplains of the Okavango Delta, walking safaris provide ample opportunities to catch site of the wild and wonderful species of Botswana.
They can be done in various ways, the most popular being walking between permanent camps or joining a mobile safari, where your tents will be packed up and driven to the next camp each day by your team of staff while you walk. The latter is generally slightly longer, lasting between a week and ten days, and departures dates are set with group sizes limited to a maximum of eight people. Whichever option you choose, you'll always be greeted with a refreshing drink and a delicious meal on arrival at the camp.
