Botswana – where to go…
Here at Botswana Specialists we may be a little biased, but we really do think that Botswana offers one of the best safari experiences, and they do things right – protecting the environment and travelling responsibly are at the forefront of Botswana Tourisms mandate.
One of the highlights has to be the Okavango Delta, UNESCO’s 1000th World Heritage Site. It’s a natural wonder made up of permanent water channels lined with swaying papyrus, seasonally flooded grass plains with palm tree islands, and higher ground where you’ll find forests and savannah grasslands.
But there is so much more to Botswana than the Delta, making it even more attractive to visitors. To the north you have Chobe and Savute along with Linyanti and Selinda regions. Chobe is renowned for huge populations of elephant year-round. In the dry season, the elephant and buffalo herds move into Linyanti and Selinda bringing with them predators renowned for hunting the big game, it’s wild dog country too. To the south you have the large salt pans of Makgadikgadi and Nxai and of course the Kalahari Desert with the stunning black-maned lions.
Each of these regions is different from the next, some dramatically so, making Botswana the place to have an amazingly diverse experience. These vast areas are home to prolific wildlife and stunning landscapes.
“Investment in travel is investment in yourself” Matthew Karsten
The wildlife is as diverse as the ecosystems; elephant, lion, lepard, cheetah, aardvark,pangolin, bat-eared foxes, jackals, hippos, wild dogs, a healthy variety of antelope, hundreds of different bird species and smaller creatures like the painted reed frog (there’s plenty more too, it’s just too much to list).
With all this to offer and more, Botswana is a wonderful holiday destination for any wildlife lover.
