Is one of the world’s last natural and non-encroached wilderness areas in Africa, It’s A country with natural parks and vast private game reserves of fenceless territory that allows huge herds of game to roam freely. The breath-taking dramatic landscapes from the Kalahari's desert , the wet sanctuary of the Okavango Delta's lush waterways, the shimmering white salt pans at the Makgadikgadi Pans and the largest Elephants herds at Chobe national park make Botswana a must visit destination. Visitors can enjoy and gain access to remote and unspoiled wilderness.
Botswana’s biggest attraction is undoubtedly the wetland sanctuary of the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world. Here you’re assured of excellent game viewing all year round. The Moremi Wildlife Reserve on the eastern fringe of the Delta is a patch straight out of heaven with lily-covered wetlands, grass plains and lush forests, where an incredible variety of animals and birds make their home. The Savute area covers almost 5 000 square kilometers in the south west of the Chobe National Park and is considered one of the best wildlife viewing areas in Africa, with particular reference to its fantastic predator populations. Animals are present during all seasons and, at certain times of the year, their numbers can be staggering.
Another noted area in the far southern corner of the Chobe National Park, the Linyanti ‘paradise’. Covering an area of almost 900 square km, with a short strip of swampy river frontage, the area is reminiscent of the Delta’s waterways. Wildlife is plentiful, especially in the dry winter months when great concentrations of elephant, buffalo and zebra congregate along the river.
Botswana is a southern African landlocked nation, surrounded by Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa and Namibia it is one of Africa’s most popular inland tourist destinations. Despite being quite a large country, Botswana remains to be one of the world’s smallest communities with just over two million people calling themselves citizens. Most of the locals can be found working in the nation’s capital city, Gaborone, however many others work on game reserves and with the country’s tourism industry.
Over seventy percent of Botswana is covered by the Kalahari Desert; the largest desert in southern Africa and one of Botswana’s largest claims to fame. Botswana’s Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta and is alive with vibrant bird species and wildlife. In comparison to the vast Kalahari Dessert, the delta is lush and green; a true magical world where life is simple and relaxation is unavoidable.
Botswana is truly a unique country with a landscape and beauty unlike any other; from deserts to delta, bushveld to grasslands, savannas to salt pans, Botswana is a true joy to explore and offers a world of adventure to all tourists.
