Get down to Botswana and growl at a lion, rumble at an elephant and tweet at some of the pretty birds (or maybe just quietly watch so you don’t scare them away).
Botswana is pretty cool, for one, there are more elephants than humans*. There’s also heaps of desert (70% of the country is desert). But it’s not just a country filled with deserts and elephants, there’s other rad stuff too.
With Geckos, you’ll go for a jaunt in dugout canoes around the Okavango Delta. You’ll see plenty of the good animal folk having a drink and hang you’ll get to hang with wallowing hippos. You’ll also camp in the wilderness and fall asleep to lion roars (which obviously makes for the best brag story ever). It doesn’t get much more Africa than Botswana.
*Probably not actually more elephants than humans, but Botswana DOES have the highest elephant population in the world, so probably pretty close.

Journey through Botswana, October 2017
Great trip the leaders were very friendly and knowledgeable and the places we visited were amazing. Overall would recommend this trip to anyone was a once in a lifetime experience! Especially having a black rhino come into our camp and eat our apples!! Only downfall a lot of time is spent driving but otherwise everything else was great.

Journey through Botswana, September 2017
Wow- an amazing trip- we saw so much in such a short space of time. This is a great introduction to Southern Africa-covering many highlights of the region! Make sure you bring your best camera and plenty to read or do, as the journey distances are very long-worth it though!
