Botswana - Wilderness and Wildlife at its Best

Botswana is the ideal destination for travelers looking for an extraordinary safari experience with diverse ecosystems, varied wildlife and remarkable landscapes. From the floodplains of the Okavango Delta to the deserts of the Kalahari and the woodlands and river of Chobe National Park, Botswana provides the perfect settings for incomparable safaris.

Botswana’s gem is the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta. Explore the waterways in a traditional mokoro (canoe) looking out for tiny frogs, blooming water lilies, hippos, crocodiles and a myriad of birds. Or venture into unspoiled wilderness on foot or by open safari vehicles going in search of plains game and predators.

North of the delta is Chobe National Park and the Chobe River, one of Africa’s most sought-after safari destinations, where the elephant population is amongst the highest density in Africa. Cruises on the Chobe River produce amazing photo opportunities of elephants playing and drinking at the water’s edge, crocodiles sunning themselves on the banks and hippo pods cooling in the water.

The Kalahari is a magnificent desert that encompasses 85 percent of the country. It springs to life in the rainy season bringing with it the zebra migration followed by predators in search of their next meal. The nutrient rich remnant of the lake can be seen in the Makgadikgadi Pans. Some of the last remaining Bushmen are to be found here too, and they will spend a day teaching you their traditional survival and hunting skills.

Other pristine wilderness areas of Linyanti and the Moremi Game reserves with their array of wildlife contribute to one of the most unspoiled safari areas on earth.
