What You Can Expect From A Safari In Botswana

Picture yourself with your camera in hand gazing at the beautiful wildlife and breathtaking sites as you carefully listen to the intriguing sounds of Africa’s wilds. As you look around you – you can’t quite believe you are here.

Safaris in Botswana are incredibly popular because it is one of the top African safari destinations. With an amazing array of safaris to choose from, you can look forward to enjoying the best Africa has to offer.

Botswana is located in Southern Africa and the economy is dominated by mining (diamonds), cattle and tourism. A relatively flat country, the Kalahari Desert (which covers almost _ of the country) is located in the southwest of the country with the Limpopo River Basin being the major landform for all of southern Africa, including Botswana.

If you book safaris in Botswana, you will likely visit one or more of these areas:

Okavango Delta – This delta is a unique wildlife area that is home to a number of different species. Located within the Delta are two large National Parks – the Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park. Chobe National Park is actually one of the largest game areas in the entire African continent and remains one of the world’s last sizeable wilderness areas. The country’s first national park, it boasts spectacular and diverse wildlife.

Savuti Marsh – Located in Chobe National Park, the Savuti Marsh was created because of a large inland lake whose water supply was cutoff a long time ago. Today, during dry season, safari treks give visitors an amazing view of the animals that inhabit this unique ecosystem.

Makgadikgadi National Park - This 4500 square mile park is directly south of Chobe National Park. It offers endless vistas of rolling golden grasslands and its huge saltpans with desert palms lining the horizon, consists mainly of fossil pans and the famous Baines baobabs. The Makgadikgadi remains a spectacle to visitors both when dry and wet. For a truly unique safari adventure during the dry season, (four-wheel drive) quad bikes are used to venture far into the middle of the Pans to explore remote archaeological sites.
