The regions and places to go in Botswana.

Each region and place to go in Botswana is different and totally unique but all are beautiful. Here, we give you a flavour of each region so you can chose which region (or regions) you would like to go to on your holiday.

Central Kalahari Game Reserve

The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is not only one of Africa’s largest game reserves but one of the largest in the world.

Chobe and Savuti

Chobe National Park is one of Botswana’s largest reserves. It is strongly connected with elephants. There are literally thousands of them.

Khwai

The Khwai Community Concession, or simply ‘Khwai’ for short is an area of diverse beauty which borders the Moremi Game Reserve to the east.

Linyanti-Selinda-Kwando

The Linyanti is a beautiful pristine area in northern Botswana to the west of Chobe. It is much less visited than Chobe and the Delta.

Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans

There was once a vast lake in north-eastern Botswana. The salt pans are what’s left of it today. It’s flat and featureless for the most part, yet this doesn’t really sum it up at all.

Moremi Game Reserve

Covering about 20% of the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve is in the heart of this incredible ecosystem. It is an unfenced reserve bounded by river systems, with Chief’s Island in the middle.

Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta, and it is within the world’s largest area of continuous sand, the Kalahari Basin. This huge desert oasis is a vastly rich yet fragile ecosystem.

Okavango Panhandle & Tsodilo Hills

Seen from above, the Okavango Delta is shaped like a giant frying pan set in the Kalahari sands. The area known as the Panhandle is in the northwest, and it’s through that the waters pour into the delta.

Tuli Game Reserve

The Tuli Block is Botswana’s most easterly point. You could fly here from elsewhere in Botswana, but actually most people access Tuli by road from the Pont Drift border with South Africa.

Victoria Falls

You’re right, Victoria Falls is not in Botswana! It straddles Zambia and Zimbabwe. However, it is very easy to visit the Falls from Botswana so it is a lovely addition to a trip to Botswana.

Beyond Botswana

A Botswana safari is a stunning holiday in its own right, but of course you’ve probably come a long way for this trip, and it would be a shame to miss any nearby highlights you’re interested in.
