Easily accessible from Cape Town, Johannesburg, Windhoek and Victoria Falls; Botswana is a magnificent country with many wonderful highlights.   The country is ideally located in the heart of Southern Africa and is bordered in the north and west by Namibia, in the east by Zimbabwe and in the south by South Africa.  Although dominated by the dry Kalahari Desert ‘thirst land’, Botswana’s beauty lies in its wilderness, wildlife and cultural diversity.

From the waters of the Okavango Delta with its variety of wildlife and aquatic birds, to the large herds of elephant and buffalo in the Chobe National Park, to the dry savannah of the Savuti Channel with its predators and migrating zebra!

Much of Botswana is remote and remains accessible to only a small number of visitors, thus making the country an ideal wilderness experience.

BOTSWANA HIGHLIGHTS :

  • Okavango Delta where wildlife and birds can be viewed from close quarters in a mokoro (dug out canoe), vehicle or on foot.
  • The Linyanti and Savuti areas which feature an annual summer migration of zebra and other grazing antelope.
  • Chobe National Park – A superb wildlife reserve which has the largest elephant and buffalo populations in Africa.
  • Chobe River – offering exciting angling (Tiger Fish), birding, sun set cruises & house boat cruises.
  • Central Kalahari Game Reserve which is the largest reserve in Botswana. The northern ‘Deception Valley’ being the favourite destination.
  • Makgadikgadi Pans – the last remnants of a lake, which was once the largest in Africa.  These Salt Pans are dotted with one-time islands and ancient Baobab trees.
  • Tuli Block – A fascinating study of ancient archaeological sites, geology, ecology and history coupled with exceptional game viewing.
  • Birding – In addition to a large number of migratory and resident species, Botswana has a large number of raptors and aquatic dwellers.
  • Cultural History – The San People (Bushmen) still live their way of life in various parts of this country and their ancient rock art is widespread.  These rock paintings can be seen in certain areas, including Tsodilo Hills which has been proclaimed a World Heritage Site, featuring 3 500 paintings.
