Botswana

Botswana is most famous for the glittering jewel of all wilderness areas - the Okavango Delta. The Delta is 15,000 square kilometers of water channels, lagoons and islands. The flood waters from the Central African Highlands over 1,000km away flow into the Delta to create this wonderous wetland within a desert. The Okavango Delta is home to a large number of wildlife from common mammals and birdlife, to those that are not often seen elsewhere, such as Sitatunga, Wild Dog and Wattled Crane.

Other areas of great interest are the Makgadikgadi Pans (a relic of what was once one of the biggest inland lakes in Africa), the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (nothing prepares you for the immensity of this reserve, nor its wild, mysterious beauty), the Linyanti with its floodplains, grasslands, exotic palm islands and scrub vegetation and the Chobe National Park (has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa).
