Discover Botswana’s natural splendour and abundant wildlife
Famous for its wildlife, Botswana offers a once-in-a-lifetime safari experience. For first-time travellers and return visitors, the Okavango Delta is the first port of call. An area of remarkable natural beauty, the Delta reaches into this part of the Kalahari Desert to infinitely enrich an environment that supports an incredible diversity of mammal, fish and bird life. Meander through the watercourses in a traditional mokoro or travel overland for game viewing in an open safari vehicle.
Botswana may be best known for its Delta, but the country is also home to two of Africa’s most beautiful game reserves: Moremi, renowned for its vast herds of buffalo, giraffe and antelope; and Chobe, further north, thought to have the highest concentration of elephants in the world. For a thrilling end to a memorable day, take a sunset cruise along the Chobe River, and watch hundreds of elephants quench their thirst at the river’s edge.
Botswana is famous for its wildlife. Watch in awe as thousands of elephants converge on the Chobe River in the Chobe National Park, see the wild dogs in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, view the abundance of lions in Savuti and enjoy the prolific bird life in the world-famous Okavango Delta.
Climate: Botswana’s climate is semi-arid and hot and dry for much of the year. Summer is the rainy season, with rainfall tending to be erratic, unpredictable and highly regional.
Map: Botswana is a landlocked country located in Southern Africa and bordering on Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
