The country is about huge landscapes and deep cultural experiences.
Wild animals roam freely in their natural habitat. Be awed by the world’s largest intact delta, the Okavango, the wildlife-rich Chobe Game Reserve, the vast Central Kgalagadi Game Reserve, or experience the isolation and vastness of the Makgadikgadi Pan. Sunset and landscapes set romantic scenes that will inspire years of future exploration in this magical country .
The landscape of Botswana is over 70% desert and mostly flat. The sky is endless. Dusk and dawn will bring a sunrise or sunset creating amazing changes in hues that give every visitor a deep sense of freedom.
Game drives and bush walks are a must-do in Botswana. This is the chance to view wildlife from an open safari vehicle accompanied by an experienced safari guide. Game drives are best done during dusk and dawn, the crepuscular hours when animals are most active.
Bush walks offer insight to the smaller aspects of these wilderness areas where guests walk with traditional trackers who use generations of knowledge to interpret natural interactions between the fauna and flora.
There are great opportunities for birdwatching, especially in the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park. Botswana has over 650 bird species recorded, of which 75% can be found in one area.
The Delta is a place to relax and explore the clear shallow waterways in a locally made canoe called a Makoro. With the sound of birdsong and the serenity of the river, a mokoro trip has been described as a signature experience in Botswana.
