For lovers of wild and authentic Africa, Botswana is the perfect choice. A huge country with vast expanses of pristine bush and astounding wildlife. The national parks and private reserves cover about 40% of the country’s land area and the movement of wildlife is unrestricted. It’s an unfenced wilderness where wildlife roams free. Unquestionably one of Africa’s supreme safari destinations.
Chobe National Park
Botswana’s signature park is 12,000 sq. km. (half the size of Belgium) and contains huge numbers of big game as well as more than 400 species of birds. The Chobe River frontage teems with wildlife, especially in the dry season, though it’s a busy park with several hotels, lodges and boats. The Zambezi Queen is a 5-star luxury floating boutique hotel with 14 suites that offers best exclusivity.
The Okavango Delta
The Okavango River rises in the highlands of Angola and flows into the Kalahari sands, spreading out into an amazing inland delta spanning more than 15,000 sq. km. of swamps and flood plains dotted with islands that offer a fascinating network of channels. It’s one of the planet’s finest and most exclusive wildlife areas and you may glide in a mokoro (a traditional dugout canoe) or go on a 4×4 safari. Exceptional small luxury camps.
Vast silvery-white salt pans that sometimes host fleeting herds of wildlife. A few small camps and a place for a real sense of wilderness and solitude. Not a Safari but a fascinating place to link with Chobe or Okavango wildlife experiences.
