See Chobe and Much More with A Botswana Safari
Around the same size as France and with the world’s largest inland delta – the Okavango – there is plenty to see and do in Botswana. Famed for its diamond mines and its relative high standard of living, Botswana rewards the adventurous traveller with its wealth of wildlife and culture.
The Okavango Delta in north-western Botswana is the largest of its kind and an important source of life to the country. Its water ways spread out like fingers to the dry areas of the Kalahari desert in the south. It is a unique ecosystem which has been recognized by UNESCO as a natural World Heritage site.
Chobe National Park: This is the other jewel in Botswana’s crown. Lying near the Okavango Delta the Park is best known for its concentrations of elephant – some 120 000 of them, along with good numbers of buffalo, antelope and various predators. Birding is also excellent, with many migrants visiting from November to March.
Moremi Game Reserve: On the eastern side of the Okavanga Delta, Moremi has contrasting scenery of thickly wooded forests, lagoons and dry arid areas. The wildlife here is profuse, with an astonishing array of birdlife, as well as a population of leopards and lions can be observed.
The Kalahari Desert with its huge golden sand dunes, acacia trees and open plains of grass, is the home of the indigenous San people, also known as Bushmen, who have lived in the area for 30.000 years and are skilled hunters.
Caprivi Strip: A spit of land jutting out from Namibia, the Caprivi Strip might not technically belong to Botswana but a visit to it is included on most itineraries. It’s an area rich in wildlife and there’s access to the Zambesi River from here, on which you can take a cruise in a paddle steamer.
