Botswana Safaris show a land of dramatic contrasts. From the crystal waters of the Okavango Delta to the large elephant herds in Chobe National Park, the proliferation of wildlife is amazing. Botswana has hot, wet summers from October to April. Winters, from May to September, are dry and cool and nights can be chilly. Maun is the point of entry into the Okavango Delta, and often into Botswana, with direct flights from both Johannesburg and Gaborone.
Blessed with some of Africa’s most beautiful subtropical wilderness reserves and an array of exceptional wildlife, Botswana is an unforgettable safari destination.
The Okavango Delta
The Okavango River drains inland from Angola to form the Okavango Delta, one of the largest inland deltas in the world. Certainly, it is a magical oasis with wide, grassy floodplains. Consequently, the delta hosts a magnificent range of wild animals, including the specially adapted sitatunga and lechwe antelopes.
Chobe National Park
Chobe National Park is famed for its spectacular elephant population. Reputedly, 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.
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.
