Best of Botswana
An unspoilt Eden, beautiful Botswana has the most concentrated wildlife population in Africa. A journey here offers a truly immersive safari experience. Explore the game-dense Chobe National Park and the vast floodplains, river channels and swamps of the Okavango Delta in magnificent Moremi National Park. Experience this wilderness by boat or mokoro on river cruises and by 4x4 game-viewing vehicles that traverse the hidden byways to put you right in the centre of the wildlife action. A helicopter flight over the Okavango Delta provides you with a breathtaking perspective of the world’s largest inland delta and its papyrus-fringed channels and islands. The lush terrain supports an astonishing array of iconic animals – from massive herds of elephants and buffalos to lions, leopards, cheetahs, spotted and brown hyenas, and African wild dogs to wildebeest, giraffes, hippos, Nile crocodiles, greater kudus, sable antelope, plains zebra, warthogs and chacma baboons. Unusual sightings include lechwe and the shy sitatunga. Birdlife is prolific, with more than 400 recorded species. Then it‘s time to take in the timeless magic of the shimmering Makgadikgadi Pans. These surreal salt pans are the largest in the world and are all that remains of an ancient superlake that evaporated over two millennia ago. The pans are interspersed with sand dunes, islands of rock, grassy plains and patches of Kalahari desert. At the driest time of year, when space seems truly endless and the terrain lunarlike, it is hard to believe that this is where you’ll find one of Africa’s largest populations of zebra. The rains fill the seasonal pans with shallow water, attracting migratory zebras in their thousands, as well as wildebeest and springbok. Inevitably, big cats follow closely. The rain-filled pans form the world’s biggest breeding site of greater flamingos and also host other waterbirds, such as pelicans, spoonbills, waders and storks.
