The Republic of Botswana is a landlocked country made up of a vast plateau that provides a natural habitat for a huge variety of African wildlife. Attracting thousands of tourists from around the world throughout the year, Botswana is an unspoiled land of timeless beauty – striking salt pans, diamond-rich deserts, fertile flood plains, vast grasslands, and flatlands punctuated with dramatic rocky outcrops. The country’s natural appeal lies in its stunning and seemingly endless wilderness, prolific wildlife, cultural diversity, and welcoming people. Botswana is truly one of Africa’s top safari destinations, teeming with game and bird-life, thanks in large part to a strong commitment to wildlife protection and management and environmental conservation. Home to the world-renowned Okavango Delta, Kalahari Desert, the Chobe National Park, and Moremi Game Reserve, where animals roam freely and offer visitors a superb safari experience.
Established in 1968, the park covers approximately 7,270 sq mi (11700 sq km), encompassing floodplains, swamps, and woodland. The Chobe River forms its northern boundary. The most accessible and frequently visited of Botswana’s big game country, the Chobe Riverfront is most famous for its large herds of elephants and Cape Buffalo, which during the dry winter months converge upon the river to drink.
One of the most sought-after wilderness destinations in the world, the Okavango Delta gives entrance to a spectacle of wild Africa – the heart-stopping excitement of big game viewing, the supreme tranquility and serenity of an untouched delta, and evocative scenes of extraordinary natural beauty.
