Highlights of Botswana
Kalahari DesertOver 70% of Botswana consists of the Kalahari desert, largely defining the wildlife and landscape of the country. The desert is semi-arid, covered with vast stretches of grasslands. Migratory birds of many species call these areas home for parts of the year, as do large animals such as elephants, giraffes, and predators such as lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas. The Kalahari is able to support such an array of wildlife thanks to the amount of rainfall it receives, which is higher than its dry, sandy neighbor, the Namib desert. Sleeping in the vast desert surrounded only by the sounds of wild animals is a magical experience.
Okavango DeltaThe Okavango Delta is one of the world's largest inland deltas and is situated in the middle of the largest stretch of continuous sand in the world - the Kalahari basin. This oasis in the middle of the desert is a rich yet fragile ecosystem, providing a life source for an incredible variety of wildlife. A wealth of species have adapted to the contrasting conditions created by living in the harsh Kalahari desert which is transformed annually with the arrival of the delta flood waters originating in Angola. The wetland encompasses Moremi Game Reserve and surrounding regions divided into areas known as "private concessions" which are carefully administrated to balance the growing community’s development and conservation, while empowering citizens through sustainable tourism.
Chobe National ParkChobe National Park is located in northern Botswana and is unique to other reserves in Africa because it has one of the highest concentrations of game of any park on the continent. It is also the third largest and most diverse park in the country. The park is renowned for its large elephant population, estimated at 50,000, which is thought to be the highest concentration of the animals in Africa. Chobe is also full of an exciting variety of other wildlife, as it acts as a haven during the dry season. At only 100 km from Victoria Falls, the park also acts as a perfect base from which to explore the astounding natural wonder.
- In the country's north west, on the border with Namibia in Chobe National Park, the largest population of elephants in the world live a protected and secure existence.
- Victoria Falls is one of the seven wonders of the world and is the largest sheet of falling water on earth - a spellbinding spectacle. The fall's thunderous roar and magnificent spray can be heard and seen for miles - hence the local name 'mosi oa tunya' meaning 'the smoke that thunders'.
- Nxai Pan National Park exists as a stark contrast to the lush Delta ecosystem of the North. The large herds of zebra, springbok, and wildebeest present at the park attract many predators – lion, cheetah, jackal are all present as well as the endangered wild dog and the secretive leopard.
- The Okavango Delta is one of the largest inland deltas in the world. This miraculously fertile flood plain with its crystal-clear lagoons and reed-fringed channels supports a rich and colorful wildlife.
- The economy of Botswana is stronger than many on the continent, based mostly on diamond mining and tourism.
- The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is often a highlight for travelers in Botswana and is the largest protected area in all of Africa. Game viewing opportunities include wildebeest, eland, red hartebeest, cheetah, leopard, lion, brown & spotted hyena & wild dog, as well as other big game.
