TOURISM AFRICA SAFARIS: Your African safari travel guide: safari game lodges & luxury hotels, tailor-made safaris & Africa overland tours


Botswana is a land of dramatic contrasts - from the crystal-clear waters of the Okavango Delta to the large elephant herds in the Chobe National Park and the desert-like landscape of Savute. Blessed with some of Africa's most beautiful subtropical wilderness reserves and an array of African wildlife, Botswana is an unforgettable safari destination.

The Okavango Delta is a magical oasis - water in the desert is a truly spectacular sight. The wide, grassy floodplains are host to a magnificent array of wild animals, including the specially adapted sitatunga and lechwe antelopes. Chobe National Park is famed for having Africa's largest single concentration of elephant, while Moremi Game Reserve is renowned for its brilliant birdlife.

Nowhere else on the planet can you float through reeded islands in a dugout canoe while around you antelope splash through the crystal clear waters of the Okavango Delta. Yet Botswana also offers excellent landbased game viewing. The Chobe National Park is home to the world's largest herds of elephant and offers regular sightings of predators, and rare and endangered animals.

There is something for everyone in Botswana - photographers will seek out the glowing red dunes of the Kalahari Desert and birdwatchers will flock to the Moremi Game Reserve.
