Safari destinations in Botswana
The Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is one of the most inspiring and captivating wilderness locations in Africa if not the entire planet. The Delta is a truly unspoiled wilderness with terrain ranging from dry grasslands to swamps. Safaris and game watching are the most popular activities in this gorgeous place and possible animals to be sighted include cheetahs, lion prides, leopards on the prowl, zebra, giraffes, elephants, crocodiles and a huge variety of plains game to name only a few.
Savuti / Linyanti
Savuti and Linyanti are vast areas of pristine wilderness located in the north of Botswana, situated between the Okavango Delta, the Chobe National Park and Namibia’s Caprivi Strip. The entire area is superb for elephants but they are possibly at their most spectacular along the rivers. There are a few rival prides of lion and this is also an excellent area for spotting the elusive leopard and rare wild dog.
The Central Kalahari
Wild, mysterious and just unthinkably vast, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is a true wilderness that will give you the impression that you are exploring Africa on your own. Rich grasslands surround you by day whilst the skies at night are as clear as you could ever imagine. The rain in summer brings about countless animals of all shapes and sizes including massive herds of animals like wildebeest, zebra and springbok.
