From the crystal waters of the Okavango Delta to the large elephant herds in Chobe National Park, Botswana is a land of dramatic contrasts.
The Okavango River drains inland from Angola to form the Okavango Delta, one of the largest inland deltas in the world. It is a magical oasis with wide, grassy floodplains hosting a magnificent range of wild animals, including the specially adapted sitatunga and lechwe antelopes.
Botswana is dominated by the Kalahari Desert, which covers up to 70% of its land surface. The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the largest, most remotely situated reserve in Southern Africa, and the second largest wildlife reserve in the world, encompassing 52,800 sq kms.
Chobe National Park is famed for its spectacular elephant population; it contains an estimated 50,000 elephants, one of the highest elephant concentrations in Africa. The Chobe River supports a diversity and concentration of wildlife unparalleled anywhere else in the country.
Blessed with some of Africa’s most beautiful subtropical wilderness reserves and an array of exceptional wildlife, Botswana is an unforgettable safari destination.
