Why Visit Botswana?

Okavango Delta 

This vast, lush wetland, through its annual flood, gives the flora and fauna their very own yearly rhythm as the waters ebb and flow, and is a habitat for some of Africa’s most endangered species. It is a wilderness of epic beauty, with a maze of waterways and islands, draining into the Kalahari. See game from a “mekoro” (dugout canoe), on foot or on horseback.

Kalahari Desert 

A starkly beautiful stretch of dunes, deep canyons, otherworldly rock formations and the world’s largest continuous stretch of sand, the desert covers much of Botswana. Here, you’ll find a unique biodiversity and concentrations of wildlife not found elsewhere, including black-maned lions.

Chobe River 

A large tributary of the Zambezi, this river supports a wonderful diversity of wildlife. Hippo and crocodiles jostle for space on the mud; elephants come to drink, and the banks teem with birdlife. There’s no better way of watching it all than from a private house boat.




The country’s conservation efforts have created a safe habitat for these mighty creatures. As a result there are more elephants in Botswana than in any other country. The best place to see them is in the Linyanti Wetlands.


Zebra migration

Each November, around 25,000 zebras trek through the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pan National Parks in search of water and fresh grazing. With the monochrome stripes against the desert background, this is one zebra crossing you’ll want to see.
