ABTA has released a list of ‘destinations to watch in 2015’ and Botswana is right up there at number two.
The popularity of the fly ‘n’ flop holiday is dwindling as we search for more excitement and unique travel experiences. Over a third of us (35%) will be travelling somewhere new in 2015 as we search for exclusivity and luxury boutique accommodation. Holidaymakers want to experience more and go home with more than just a tan and a buffet belly!
Botswana is a fantastic destination for 2015 as it offers everything we’re searching for in an exclusive and exciting holiday. Botswana is a leader in eco tourism and an incredible 38% of the land is protected for wildlife and nature conservation.
Botswana’s main draw is the chance to take a safari. The beautiful countryside, the wetlands and saltpans are home to an incredibly large and diverse amount of wildlife as well as some of Africa’s most endangered species.
The Okavango Delta is one of the best places in the world for year-round game viewing. This is Africa’s biggest oasis and creates a natural theatre to see lions, hippos, hyenas, cheetahs, white rhinoceros, black rhinoceros, African dogs and so much more. Central Kalahari and Nxai is an unforgettable place to be between November and May as you will see huge herds of migrating beasts such as buffalo, elephants and zebra. The Kalahari is also home to the magnificent black-maned lion. Moremi is one of the most beautiful reserves in all of Africa, and is particularly popular with bird watchers as there is an abundance of beautiful species filling the sky.
One of the best things about a holiday to Botswana is the lack of crowds. It’s a quiet and peaceful place to visit with small, intimate camps. Visitors are made to feel incredibly welcome and more like family members than tourists.
If you’re looking for an adventure in 2015, make sure Botswana is on your list. These are just a few of the many, many reasons to visit this beautiful country.
