Botswana – A Jewel


Botswana, one of the top destinations for true safari travellers to Africa, is a landlocked country, bordered by South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The capital is Gaborone. Peaceful and prosperous, with a vast proportion of the country set aside as protected conservation areas, it is primarily flat and dominated by the sands of the Kalahari Desert. Home to one of the world’s largest inland deltas – the world famous Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and natural Wonder of the World, Botswana teems with wildlife offering both unique water and land-based game viewing activities to the visitor. The tented camps and lodges tend to be small and intimate offering a remoteness and privacy away from any crowds. With diverse areas of wildlife habitats – delta, desert grasslands and savanna, you will discover plains game and a wide array of mammals and beautiful birds. You will also have the opportunity to search for one of the few remaining larger populations of the endangered African wild dog, while in Chobe National Park and along the Chobe River, you’ll be entertained by elephants galore, in the home of the world’s largest concentration of African elephants.
