Botswana, the African Outback, is indeed a paradise for nature lovers. Its untouched wilderness stretches as far as the eye can see, making it a rare gem on our planet.
One of the country’s highlights is the unique Okavango Delta, where the Okavango River flows into the marshes within the Kalahari Desert. With an area ranging from 15,000 to 22,000 km2, the Okavango Delta is larger than Belgium and is the world’s largest inland delta. It is nestled in one of the largest continuous sand regions on Earth. Exploring the delta is best done by Mokoro, the traditional dugout canoe, gliding silently through this magnificent ecosystem. Experienced rangers will guide you through the habitats of leopards, hyenas, and lion prides. Whether you embark on a boat safari or a game drive, you are guaranteed unique wildlife encounters. Witness elephants bathing in the morning, observe hippos and crocodiles in their natural pools surrounded by reeds – the experiences are truly unforgettable.
Another must-visit destination is Chobe National Park in northern Botswana, which is home to the largest elephant population in Africa, as well as vast herds of buffalo and a fascinating array of bird species.
The Kalahari Desert, bordering South Africa and Namibia, is another treasure of Botswana, offering a unique desert experience. The stunning landscape of the Makgadikgadi Pans, one of the largest salt pans in the world, is equally awe-inspiring. The untouched wilderness, diverse wildlife, serene starry skies, and secluded expanses create moments that will stay with you forever.
In Botswana, the mantra is “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints” to protect its pristine nature. Enjoy your stay in exclusive tent camps and embark on breathtaking fly-in safaris, allowing you to experience wildlife from a different perspective.
