The country checks all the boxes but also offers many unanticipated pleasures of its own
In four trips with Global Basecamps, Myra Silverstein found the authenticity she seeks in travel
Travel is back!
The pandemic is over. The pandemic is not over. You're likely to see both these contradictory statements in the news on any given day. But whether it is or it isn’t over, one thing is certain: people are traveling again.
A huge component of the Global Basecamp experience is the incredible guides and partners we work with. We’ll be highlighting some of these extraordinary guides and giving a our community a glimpse into everything from their favorite memory on the job to why they first wanted to become a guide. We hope these spotlight interviews will help give insight into their contribution to the GB experience as well emphasize how travel can be used as a vehicle for cross-cultural connection and learning.
Come visit Botswana with us, where a high-end safari is synonymous with luxury…and luxury is not just about the décor in your room or the facilities in camp, but also about staying in incomparable locations in the best game viewing areas in the country. It is about immersion in remoteness, intoxicating sunsets, endless horizons, mokoro trips along narrow, reed-lined channels, herds of elephants, packs of wild dogs, and lions stalking their prey. It is about near exclusivity with rarely another visitor in sight when staying in private reserves and concessions. Upscale safari camps subtly blend elegance with adventure, huge herds of game roam freely between the plains of the Kalahari and the waterways of the Okavango, and vast expanses of pristine wilderness are protected by some of the strictest conservation policies in the world.
