Travel to the “Greenest” Destination in Africa: Botswana

Botswana Article PhotoBotswana has been long known in safari-going circles as one of the “greenest” destinations in Africa. On a continent too often in the headlines for what is not going well, Botswana’s safari industry stands out as a beacon of stability and responsible stewardship. With national parks, game reserves, and private wilderness concessions, there are opportunities for every budget.

Choosing the right safari operator allows you to travel conscientiously as well. Wilderness Safaris (local partner to U.S. based tour operator Boundless Journeys) is consistently on editors’ lists of the most responsible operators in the region, with programs to protect wildlife (Wilderness Safaris Wildlife Trust), to give local kids exposure to wild areas (Children in the Wilderness), and projects ranging from anti-poaching to rural community support.

Exclusive, low-impact, and epic all describe Boundless Journeys’ custom safaris in Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, and throughout Southern Africa in partnership with Wilderness Safaris.
