Botswana plays host to some of the finest private reserves in Africa. Famous for the sheer beauty of the Okavango Delta and unparalleled levels of exclusivity, its diversity of desert, forest and delta landscapes mean a magical safari experience in one of Africa’s purest safari destinations.
Chobe National Park, is one of Botswana’s busier parks but a must-see wildlife destination that includes the Savute Channel and natural beauty of the Linyanti River. Covering almost 11 000 km², it was the country’s first national park and boasts the biggest concentration of wildlife in Africa, especially its large concentration of elephant and buffalo, which congregate along the Chobe River.
The vast Makgadikgadi Pans span 16 000 km² and are the largest salt pans in the world. Remnants of an ancient lake, interspersed with sandy desert and dotted vegetation, they are home one of Africa’s biggest zebra populations who make this vista of white sand and salt their home. When rains fall the pans fill with water and attract large flocks of flamingos, as well as big herds of zebra, springbok and wildebeest, followed closely by predators – making for fantastic game viewing. Game drives here feature wild open plains that are stark and hypnotic, where you encounter specially adapted wildlife as they expertly navigate through the arid desert in search of food and water. Pass herds of springbok, gemsbok, and red hartebeest, while night-drives brush by packs of the edgy brown hyena, bat eared foxes and the elusive black-maned Kalahari lion. Simply mesmerising.
Then there is the iconic Okavango Delta - a UNESCO World Heritage site. A maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown islands teeming with wildlife, with some of the most exclusive safaris available, Botswana’s iconic Okavango Delta lies as a sparkling jewel at the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Known as “the river that never finds the sea”, crystal clear channels spread over the thirstlands of the Kalahari with their papyrus-fringed banks and fertile floating islands. Explore the Okavango Delta by mokoro or motorised boat cruises, on foot or on game drives, seeking out the elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga as well as lion, cheetah, leopard and African wild dog.
