Botswana offers some of the best wilderness and wildlife on the African continent. With 38 percent of its total land area devoted to national parks, reserves and wildlife management areas – for the most part unfenced – it gives one the feeling of moving through an immense Nature wonderland.
Experience here the stunning beauty of the world’s largest intact inland Delta – the Okavango; the unimaginable vastness of the world’s second largest game reserve – the Central Kalahari Game Reserve; and the astoundingly prolific wildlife of the Chobe National Park.
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. This makes your safari experience even more memorable, and at times you will feel simply surrounded by wild animals.
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 stars and heavenly bodies of an unimaginable brilliance, and stunning sunsets of unearthly beauty.
As well, with more and more cultural tourism options on offer, you will be charmed by the people of Botswana, visiting their villages and experiencing first-hand their rich cultural heritage.
The Okovango Delta offers game drives, bush walks and water safaris! This area with its perennial water activities and a trip on a Mokoro (dug out canoe) through spectacular landscapes abundant with big game, is a must!
Chobe National Park is best known for its mammoth herds of elephant and the vast array of wildlife that can be viewed by land or water.
Linyanti and Savuti are remote areas in the Chobe National Park which are fairly quiet and offer immense game viewing and a wonderful wilderness experience.
