Enjoy fine dining and spot elephants on safari holidays in Botswana

People keen on spotting elephants while on a wildlife excursion in Africa may be interested in Botswana, according to one publication.

Brendan Powell, writing for the Globe and Mail, said those who imagine safari holidays to contain a fine dining experience as the beasts travel past camp might find the African country ideal.

He added: "One of the world's premier game-viewing destinations, Botswana is blessed with some of Africa's most beautiful subtropical wilderness reserves."

There are luxury camps around the nation and lodges which put many hotels to shame, Mr Powell continued, also pointing out that the region caters for the ultimate in remote comfort.

Another location in the continent that could be equally as good for a safari is Kenya, recommended by Sankha Guha, writing for the Independent, who stated that there is an array of creatures in the country, such as wildebeest, which he described as "comedy animals".
