Abundant wildlife congregate on the country’s vast salt pans of the Kalahari and rich floodplains of the Okavango Delta. This wetland within a desert, provides life-giving sustenance, generating an everlasting vision with large herds of elephants, zebras, wildebeest, and a host of other wildlife. The Okavango Delta is also home to some of the world’s most endangered species such as the cheetah, white rhinoceros, black rhinoceros, African wild dog and lion.
With a combination of natural riches, teeming wildlife, a low human population density and a forward thinking government, Botswana has become a premier destination for a most rewarding African safari and adventure tour.
Glide through the delta in a mokoro (traditional canoe) and take a guided bush walk on a nearby island. Stay in luxury lodges,
Herds of elephants coming to drink as the sun sets each with its unique micro environment, topography, vegetation and variation in nature.
If you have been to Africa once, you will understand...Africa gets in your blood. You long to go back. Images of the tawny landscape stretching deep into the hazy distance draw you in. You crave the anticipation of what gift from nature a new day will bring. Elephants wallowing in the mud around a reed-fringed waterhole as a warning cry echoes across the water. A herd of waterbuck crash through the shallows at the sight of a wandering lion. You have to go back...
One of Africa's success stories, Botswana is a stable country with a booming economy. After their independence in 1966, its visionary leaders secured Botswana's borders from poachers. The game concentrations multiplied and flourished. Since then the country abandoned mass tourism and focused on high quality / low volume as the best way to create a sustainable industry that would employ a large percentage of its people, while still preserving the environment.
