Botswana casts a subtle spell with its alluring contrasts of desert and delta. In the northwest, the Okavango River pours onto the desert sands of the Kalahari, creating the largest inland river delta in the world. These two fragile environments occupy much of the country – the Kalahari Desert, with its great salt flats and the Okavango Delta, a maze of islands, lagoons and waterways. Chobe River, Linyanti Wetlands and Savuti Channel ecosystem lure brilliant birds and large numbers of antelope such as the desert-adapted Oryx and wetlands-loving lechwe. Botswana may be the last outpost for some of the largest wildlife herds left in Africa, including zebra, gemsbok, wildebeest, springbok and, particularly, elephants. Chobe National Park shelters what is likely the largest surviving continuous elephant population in the world. The very remoteness that once deterred travelers is now a large part of the attraction of Botswana travel. Here, where wildlife still outnumbers people, where sand meets water, where traditional lifestyles are still practiced – it is still possible to experience authentic Africa in the luxury Botswana safari of a lifetime.
