Highlights, suggested holiday ideas and recommended safaris.
A Botswana safari means a wilderness adventure to one of the most pristine wildlife destinations in Africa. The game viewing never fails to disappoint, the birdlife can be spectacular, and the irresistible combination of being on a 4x4 safari vehicle or exploring the many waterways on a boat safari is just unbeatable.
The majority of people want to visit the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland wetland area, comprising of nearly 16,000 square kilometres of lagoons, island and channels. This great quantity of water attracts a huge number of wildlife, including elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffes, hippos, kudus, predators such as lion, hyena and leopard, and endless birdlife.
But there is more to Botswana than just the Delta. The Chobe National Park is home to an estimated 100,000 elephants - which is believed to be the highest concentration of elephants found anywhere in the world. The Linyanti and Savuti regions have abundant wildlife including rarer antelope species such as sable and roan, and the birdlife is spectacular.
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans are an ideal addition for a couple of nights, giving you time to relax and enjoy the outstanding scenery with some gentle game viewing thrown in the mix for good measure.
With direct flights now from Cape Town in South Africa into Maun, the 'gateway' to the Delta, and also easily accessible from the mighty Victoria Falls, many people also combine their Botwana holiday with these two iconic African destinations.
