Botswana

Overview

Delta and Desert

Botswana has lots to recommend it. The unique geological feature of the Okavango delta allows wildlife viewing like nowhere else- punting a makoro (dugout canoe) through the wildlife rich channels of the delta allows you to get close to the wildlife. Add to this the Kalahari Desert and the high elephant population of Chobe National Park on the Zambezi River and you end up with an amazing safari experience.

Botswana is landlocked and there isn't much in the way of mountains so you have to go elsewhere for some types of activity, but for more typical wildlife safaris it is excellent. The population is low and the country makes money from its diamond mines so there is less political and population pressure on the wildlife than in some countries- which also contributes to the high quality experience.

Victoria Falls In Zambia can be added to a Botswana trip quite easily.

The main point of entry is a light aircraft into the town of Maun if you are starting a safari in the Okavango delta or Kasane if you are starting a safari in Chobe National Park. You can start in one and finish in another and then connect with a flight to South Africa.
