Botswana is primarily a safari destination. Untamed and untameable, it is one of the last great refuges for Nature’s magnificent pageantry of life. The first – and most lasting impressions – will be of vast expanses of uninhabited wilderness stretching from horizon to horizon, the sensation of limitless space, astoundingly rich wildlife and bird viewing, night skies littered with brilliantly shining stars, and stunning sunsets of unearthly beauty.
Over 38 percent of Botswana’s total land area is devoted to national parks, game reserves and wildlife management areas. These areas are mostly unfenced, allowing animals to roam wild and free over vast tracts of African bush. Experience the stunning beauty of the world’s largest inland Delta – the Okavango, the other-worldliness of the remote and semi-arid Kalahari Desert and the astoundingly prolific wildlife of the Chobe National Park and Moremi Game Reserve. Botswana is the last stronghold for a number of endangered bird and mammal species, including Wild Dog, Cheetah, Brown Hyena, Cape Vulture, Wattled Crane, Kori Bustard, and Pel’s Fishing Owl, making for an even more memorable safari experience.
Botswana has several of the largest and most isolated game sanctuaries in Southern Africa and many areas are accessible only by light aircraft. The Botswana government has also pursued a low-impact tourism policy. This means that there is no mass tourism in Botswana and a Botswana safari is guaranteed to be exclusive and unique.

I have been involved in the hotel and tourism industry since 1993 and with Pembury since 2001. Since qualifying as a hotel manager, I have been fortunate enough to have worked in many of the best hotels and lodges in different areas of South Africa. This has given me a great local knowledge of my country. I have a lifelong dedication to travelling in Africa and, after having lived in game reserves for more than 4 years, they are still a passion for our family getaways.
As a natural progression, I joined Pembury Tours as a consultant, after settling in Port Elizabeth. My responsibilities include tailor-making itineraries to suit the client’s requirements. From making the reservation, compiling the travel documents, including maps and directions, to ensuring a smooth and enjoyable holiday, I know that the perfect holiday is made up of many facets and the effective combining of these services ensures the clients their “great African vacation”.
I am currently running our Botswana office and I specialise in holidays to this area.
