Botswana is often referred to as one of the wildest regions in Africa, because it offers such diverse safari options in pristine environments. It is a place of endless horizons, with an abundance of wildlife, unspoilt wilderness, splendid waterways, and desert landscapes.
It’s not only the magnificent Okavango Delta and its diversity of habitats, but the opportunity to gaze at it from different angles – by air, water and land.
The legendary inland waterway, the Okavango Delta, slices sinuously through a large part of Botswana, creating an area of unimaginable natural splendour. To fly over the Delta in a light aircraft is scenically arresting and awe-inspiring. It is also, in certain cases, the only way to reach the more remote camps! Some camps are water based, others offer both wet and dry game viewing. Meander slowly through the water courses in a traditional canoe or mokoro, or travel over land in an open safari vehicle
Botswana may be best known for its Delta, but the country also boasts two of Africa’s finest game reserves: Moremi, renowned for its huge herds of elephant, buffalo, giraffe and antelope; Chobe, further north, thought to have the highest concentration of elephants in the world. For a thrilling end to a memorable day, take a sunset cruise at Chobe, and watch hundreds of dusty elephants ponderously cavorting with each other at the river’s edge.
The Linyanti Region lies within Chobe and here, in the dry season, the concentration of game is such that the visitor will see buffalo by the thousand, followed by sizeable prides of lion.
Moremi Game Reserve is a National Park in Botswana and is located on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta. The Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and combines permanent water with drier areas, which create some startling and unexpected contrasts. Some prominent features of the Reserve are Chiefs Island and the Moremi Tongue.
