Watch a family of elephants arrive at the watering hole in the early morning light as swift white birds dart through the air above. Nearby, a lioness begins her hunt, stalking her prey in the sun-kissed savannah. The roar of a great hippo is your alarm clock in Botswana, a natural paradise of wonders. Dine under the stars, spot sleek leopards loping through the tall grass, and delight in the sights and sounds of untouched Africa.
