You want to see elephants - big herds, mothers and babies and big lone bulls
Botswana has more elephants than any other safari country – no-one knows exactly how many but there are over 100,000. The best time and place to see them in huge herds is in the far northern savannah plains of Savuti, Linyanti and Chobe. If you prefer your elephants without loads of people too, we’ll fly you into immense private reserves such as Lebala and Selinda where just a handful of guests share hundreds of square kilometres of pure Africa.
The latter part of the dry season from July to November is best when water supplies are scarce and of course you see all kinds of plains game and big cats too. We’ll suggest that you combine it with a few days in the idyllic watery Okavango Delta. At Baines Camp in the Okavango you can spend half a day closeup with three wonderful orphan elephants.
