Dominated by the Kalahari Desert, Botswana is home to some of the most beautiful African safari destinations in the world. With destinations such as Chobe National Park, the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve and the great Kalahari Desert, travelers are in for great memories and stunning encounters when they visit Botswana.
Chobe National Park
Located in the far north, Chobe National Park is the most biologically diverse of the three largest game parks in Botswana. The diverse landscapes of savannah, floodplains and woodland provide a rich array of wildlife, including the largest concentration of elephants in Africa. There are many ways to experience Chobe National Park. For a true wilderness adventure, it doesn’t get much better than camping safaris or exploring the Chobe River while staying on a houseboat or taking a boat trip.
Botswana’s diverse wildlife owes its existence to one of the greatest natural wonders in Africa – the Okavango Delta. Flowing from the Angolan Highlands, the Okavango River provides water for the formation of the Okavango Delta. The myriad of waterways are an oasis in this harsh environment and provide travelers with some of the greatest wildlife spectacles in Africa. Game viewing is at its best from July to October when the dry season forces wildlife to the permanent water sites of the Okavango.
Moremi Game Reserve
During seasonal floods of the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve offers amazing wildlife encounters. With only 30% of the game reserve being mainland and the majority within the Okavango Delta, the wildlife is plentiful and diverse. Explore Moremi in a 4×4 or take a more unconventional trip in a mokoro (dug out canoe) piloted by your own personal guide.
Stretching 900,000 square kilometers the Kalahari Desert covers most of Botswana and although it is labelled as a desert, the Kalahari is home to unforgettable landscapes (such as the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan) and amazing wildlife for the spirited traveler. Travelers will be astounded at the diversity and abundance of plants and wildlife that thrives in the Kalahari Desert.
Elephants, lions, cheetahs and many other animals abound in Botswana’s beautiful, but harsh landscapes. Travelers are in for a true African safari experience when they visit and some of the best game viewing southern Africa, if not Africa, has to offer.
