Iconic’s very own Lauren Fryer has many stories to tell about all the places she has travelled to and her favourite memory remains in Botswana – the most incredible wilderness sanctuaries with its diverse landscapes: from the Kalahari Desert through great stretches of Mopane woodland to the delta itself, with kilometres of channels, islands and lagoons. It has large herds of elephants, beautiful cats, and enough variety in its bird-life to turn even the most dedicated big-mammal follower into a twitcher!
This bush-mad team member has an endless list of reasons why Botswana should be on your current bucket list, but here are just 10 to persuade you:
Stand in front of the extraordinary ‘upside-down trees’. The baobab trees are a sight to behold with their strange and unique configurations.

A romantic sunset cruise on the Chobe River
Hot air balloon rides over the Okavango Delta
Sleep under the stars on a skybed and overlook endless plains with the perfect view of elephants gathering at the nearest waterhole.

We have left the best for last: the incredible luxury destinations such as Selinda Game Reserve, Chobe and the Okavango Delta.
If you’ve left the planning for last-minute but desperately want to visit Botswana, the Green Season is always less busy than peak season. Don’t leave bookings over peak season and holidays to the last minute as most lodges will be full.
