Botswana

Botswana

Botswana is a true wilderness, where twenty percent of the country is a protected national park.

Often thought to be Africa’s best-kept secret, it houses amazing areas like the Okavango Delta, the Chobe National Park and the Moremi Game Reserve – all with a multitude of game. In addition to being a place of forests, deserts, great plains and wetlands it is also home to Africa’s third largest river, the Okavango, which creates the Okavango Delta, a warren of lagoons, streams, channels and islands which provide one of the finest game-viewing regions in the world, and also one of the best for birdlife.

Botswana Tours

The finest way to explore the Delta is by mokoro, a type of dug-out canoe, which is both a magical and near mystical journey, especially at sunrise or sunset. The world’s largest inland delta, one of its more astonishing elements is that it eventually disappears into the vast dry lands of the Kalahari Desert, where the original Bushmen still live.

Botswana has purposely aimed for and achieved a policy of high-income, low-volume tourism, and as a result, it is now home to some of the world’s finest safari camps and lodges.
