Botswana is often described as the ultimate wildlife destination. What better way to view it’s true glory than by safari?
Botswana’s wildlife wilderness reserves are regarded as some of the best in the world. The Okavango Delta is one of the world’s largest inland deltas, described as “The river that never finds the sea” and as “the jewel” of the harsh Kalahari Desert, a peaceful and isolated oasis. It sustains at least 9000 species of flora and fauna, many of which are endemic or rare. The best way to experience the delta is by mekoro, a dugout canoe which is maneuvered through the Okavango by your own poler, a guide who truly knows and understands this unique ecosystem. As the waters ripple past you, and the honking hippo chomp through the undergrowth, you could feel as if you have been transported into a magical wonderland.
In contrast, Chobe National Park is one of Africa’s most sought after safari destinations and has the largest savanna elephant population in Africa. Explore the 11,700 km² of wildlife paradise with an extensive river front where herds of animals come to drink, crocodiles sun themselves on the riverbank whilst the plethora of birds flit amongst the water lilies and riverine vegetation.
Whether you choose to plan your Botswan safari as a group or if you’re travelling alone, tailor made safari holidays are the best way to ensure you experience close and safe encounters with wildlife, immerse yourself in the local culture and come home with glorious memories of your trip.
