Botswana is renowned for its flatness with 70 percent of the lands surface covered by the Kalahari Desert making it an extremely arid environment.

This country holds the world’s largest inland delta, the Okavango Delta, which lies northwest. The Makgadikgadi Pan – a large salt pan – is also situated in the north along with the renowned Chobe National Park (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.

If you are considering this remarkable destination we would suggest travelling with us during the dry season, which is between May and October.
