Low Season Travel: Botswana

We are continuing our podcast series on low season travel in the African continent. 

Most of us are not as well travelled in Africa as we are in other regions of the world.  And that includes me.  Yet, Africa offers some of the most incredible, awe-inspiring and breathtaking travel experiences available in our world.

As a continent, Africa experiences the tiniest fraction of incoming tourists as are seen in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australasia.  And yet, it is Africa which has some of the richest cultural heritage, wildlife, flora and fauna found anywhere on earth.

As our guest will mention. It’s only when you visit these incredible destinations for yourself, that you truly begin to understand.  Once you go, you know.

And so, as we seek experiences away from the crowds, join us as we embark on a journey to some of the least visited destinations in the world as we try to learn just why on earth Africa is so often overlooked when we consider our travel plans.

In this second episode, we’re joined by Warren Pearson who is a Specialist Naturalist Guide, an explorer, a Photographer, a fellow of the Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and he’s completed projects with Animal Planet and National Geographic among many others.

Warren has travelled extensively throughout the African Continent and appeared courtesy of Africa Roam as part of our Low Season Africa Mini Series of Facebook and YouTube Live events which are held every Monday at 14:00 UK time.

In this episode, we spoke to Warren about the low season experiences to be enjoyed in Botswana during the low season months. We hear how Botswana has the largest collection of wild elephants in the world and we learn some of the worrying challenges these herds are facing today. We also learn more about the huge diversity of landscapes, flora and fauna Botswana offers to low season travellers. Finally we also heard about one of the world’s lesser known, but hugely impressive, migrations which you can catch during the low season months in Botswana. So do join us as we head over to this amazing country…
