Botswana weaves a subtle spell with its alluring contrasts of desert and delta, where wildlife still outnumbers people; where sand meets water, where traditional lifestyles are still practiced.
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 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, especially, elephants. Chobe National Park shelters what is likely the largest surviving continuous elephant population in the world. The Limpopo River Basin, the major landform of all of Southern Africa, lies partly in Botswana. The brooding quietness of the waterways, the graceful red dunes, the plaintiff cry of an African fish eagle and the Okavango’s glorious sunsets will linger long after the trip home. The very remoteness that once deterred travelers is now a large part of Botswana’s attraction.
Here, it is still possible to experience authentic Africa on the safari of a lifetime.
