Botswana is a land of dramatic contrasts - from the crystal-clear waters of the Okavango Delta and its fringe areas to the large elephant herds in the Chobe National Park and the unpredictable Savute Channel, which runs dry and floods seemingly at random. Blessed with some of Africa's most beautiful subtropical wilderness reserves and an array of exceptional 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 range 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. Despite it's arid nature, Savuti's waterholes are a magnet for wildlife, the less-heralded but prolific Khwai is one of our favourite spots, the landscapes of Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans are unique, and the Central Kalahari has a wonderful sense of isolation and is splendid for discovering the lifestyle of the oldest tribal group on the plant, the San.
