Botswana lends itself to a diverse landscape making it an extraordinary destination for wildlife safaris. It has one of the largest populations of African wild dog and the Chobe National Park, which can be found west of the Okavango Delta and is home to the largest population of elephants in the world. With seasonal rains providing ideal conditions for lush grasslands and wetlands, Botswana is a feast for grazing animals such as wildebeest, springbok, antelope and kudu. These animals also bring a host of Big Cat predators that are never too far from sight.
Located in Southern Africa, Botswana is bordered by South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia. It is renowned for its flatness with 70 percent of the lands surface covered by the Kalahari Desert, making it an extremely arid environment.
Botswana holds the world’s largest inland delta, the Okavango Delta, which lies northwest. The Makgadikgadi Pan, a large salt pan, is situated in the north. The Chobe River also lies to the north and provides a border between Botswana and Namibia’s Zambezi region.
Another highlight of this destination is the flamingos that can be viewed in their thousands within the salt pan, providing a colourful spectacular for photography enthusiasts.
