Botswana is a huge, sparsely populated country; a wildlife paradise. The country’s most famous feature is the Okavango Delta. The Okavango River flows out from Angola and Namibia into northern Botswana, where it fans out into a 5800 square mile inland delta. The water never reaches the sea, but it feeds swampy grasslands that support an entire food chain of wild animals. One sixth of the world’s elephants live in Botswana, and most of those in the Okavango Delta and the neighbouring Chobe National Park. It is also one of the last places you can see white rhino and the critically endangered black rhino – if you’re very lucky. You can also see lions, hippo, giraffes, Cape buffalo, zebra, antelope, and thousands of African wetland birds.
One of the most popular ways to see Botswana is on a guided overland safari, or you may prefer to rent a 4WD in the capital Gabarone and navigate your own way. You can also fly directly to regional air strips on small passenger planes for safari tours in any of Botswana’s national parks.
