Even though Botswana offers superlative game viewing ...
Botswana is a land of staggering beauty with a small population; it is located in the heart of Southern Africa.
Botswana remains largely untouristed even though it boasts world-class game viewing opportunities. The Okavango Delta is known as the ‘jewel of the Kalahari’ and is teeming with both permanent and migratory aquatic birds and wildlife, attracted by the 800 mile wide seasonal flooding. The unique transport here is mokoro (dugout canoe), which allows visitors to glide seamlessly through the eco-system, getting right up close to all the action. Expert guides also track animals by open vehicle and riverboat so you can enjoy the wildlife from every angle.
Magnificent herds of elephant and buffalo inhabit the Chobe National Park while migratory animals and ever present predators flock to the Savuti Channel. Bird watchers will scarcely have time to put down their binoculars in this richly represented area.
Experience the stunning beauty, the unimaginable vastness and the prolific wildlife of this fabulous safari destination – you are guaranteed a wonderfully unique Botswana safari adventure.
