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, January 2018
There was a lot of opportunities during the trip to get money out and buy lunch. This trip provides good opportunities to see a lot of animals in their natural habitat. This trip helps support the protecting of land for animals to live. We saw 4 animals out of big 5. Chobe and karma rhino sanctuary are the best spots to see wildlife. The delta is beautiful. Camping isn't too bad, the toilet facilities were quiet good.

Journey through Botswana, August 2017
This trip was amazing. My husband and I had a wonderful experience. As long as you have the right expectations for the trip, you will have an excellent time. You will spend a lot of time on the "elephant" (the huge bus) so be prepared. I made sure to have a good pillow, my Kindle/book, and I also took motion sickness pills each day just in case. You will also have to assist with meal prepping, cooking and cleaning up. Our guides did most of the actual cooking, but we broke up into teams and took turns cleaning dishes after every meal. You are also responsible with the set up and break down of your tent each day. These things are all worth it for how much you get to see and experience.
