Botswana Safari OverviewWelcome to one of the few unspoiled wilderness areas in Africa, with vast game reserves where some of the largest herds in southern Africa roam free and wild, together with some of the most spectacular and varied bird life. In Botswana you experience a land of nature and endless horizons, little changed by man. The tropical climate greets you with blue skies, sunshine and cooling breezes. Exotic birds and flowers are all around you and herds of elephant, giraffe, buffalo, and antelope roam across the rolling countryside. As you travel through Botswana, you discover a land of contrasts. It is a land-locked country, about the size of France, in which you can encounter the desert sands of the Kalahari and the verdant Eden of the Okavango Delta, where water takes precedence over land. The Okavango Delta forms the nucleus and heartbeat of this treasure house of wildlife. Explore the waterways of the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world; the vast, white salt pans and the grasslands of the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans; the seemingly endless Kalahari Desert with its orange sand and scant vegetation, and the dense bush and broad floodplains of Chobe National Park, home to the largest concentration of elephants in Africa. All the large mammals can be found in Botswana; elephant, buffalo, red lechwe, lion and cheetah occur in good numbers and Botswana has the largest remaining population of the endangered African wild dog. Over 500 species of birds have been identified along with reptiles and smaller mammals. The people of Botswana will extend a warm welcome to you.
