The climate in Botswana is very dry – though surprisingly enough one of the major attractions are the wetlands of the Okavango delta.

It has a population of only one and a half million people. Most people live in the south-east. Major cities are the capital Gaborone and Francistown. However, a Botswana safari offers great wildlife and nature. Most travelers come to this country for two reasons: the Kalahari Desert, which covers about 85% of the country and the Okavango delta, a huge wetland system of up to 15,000 square kilometers.

The Delta is one of the most prolific wildlife areas in Africa. Its diverse and pristine habitats, together with unmatched scenic beauty, make it one of Africa’s most important wilderness destinations. The Okavango Delta is on of the largest inland deltas in the world with a surface of over 16000 sq kilometers. The delta offers great scenic beauty and sustains phenomenal numbers of wildlife.

With forests of palms, grasslands, islands, flood plains and lagoons to be seen, tourists seeking the pleasure of adventure in Botswana are sure to have one of the best experiences of their life. The delta waters actually spill into the sands of the Kalahari Desert. The meeting of dry land and wet land gives that breath-taking contrast, popularly referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Kalahari’. A highlight of a visit to this area is the incredible profusion of birdlife – Pel’s Fishing Owl, Wattled Cranes, Slaty Egrets, Rufous-Bellied Heron, Swamp Boubous, and a host of eagles, vultures and other raptors will keep the bird lover in heaven.

The Savuti Channel area in the north is one of Africa’s most famous big game areas making a Botswana safari a unique experience. To the northwest of Savuti and off the main tourist track lies Botswana’s best kept secret: Linyanti and the western reaches of the Savuti Channel. The Linyanti and upper Savuti areas rank among the most beautiful in Botswana. Chobe National Park also has a wonderful concentration of animals.

South of Maun and the Okavango Delta, lies the huge open expanse of the Kalahari Desert. In March and April the Kalahari blossoms with life and huge open spaces of the Makgadikgadi pans fill with water, attracting huge migrating herds.
