With vast open savannas teeming with wildlife, Botswana is one of the world’s last unspoilt wilderness areas. A vast country with huge populations of game, Botswana is a prime safari destination and home to the largest inland delta in the world – the Okavango Delta, the shimmering white salt pans at the Makgadikgadi Pans, and one of the largest elephant populations at Chobe.
Because the Okavango Delta and the Chobe River provide a year-round water supply, nearly all southern African mammal species are present in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve and Chobe National Park. In the Makgadikgadi & Nxai Pans National Park herds of wildebeest, zebra and other mammals migrate annually in search of permanent water and stable food supplies.
Across in Botswana’s eastern corner lies the Tuli enclave, a diverse wilderness of savannah, riverine forests, marshland, open plains and sandstone outcrops. Here, you can experience game on foot, horseback or on a cycling tour.
