Considered one of nature's masterpieces, the Okavango Delta in Botswana offers its visitors an insight into one of Africa's truly great wilderness areas. A World Heritage Site, this vast and virtually untouched freshwater wetland lies in the heart of Botswana’s arid Kalahari desert. Despite this, it supports an abundance of wildlife within a setting of dazzling, natural beauty and stretches over 15,000 square kilometres.
Protected by the Moremi Game Reserve and numerous private wildlife concessions, the Okavango Delta is home to a huge number of elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, countless species of bird as well as every kind of antelope you can think of.
Yet, despite its wild nature, the Okavango Delta is surprisingly accessible and you’ll certainly get to see it up close by going on guided game drives, bush walks, mokoro rides, boat safaris, fishing and bird watching.
A sister to the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park and located close by is the 2,578 square kilometres Nxai Pan National Park.
Here, and within the mopane woodland are lion, giraffe, kudu, impala, ostrich, fascinating birdlife, a large number of springbok and a good population of a jackal, bat-eared foxes and numerous of smaller creatures.
Apart from the rich wildlife, the south of the reserve's Baines Baobabs area overlooks the Kudiakam Pans with the impressive 1,000 year-old baobab trees.
Look forward to impressive natural scenery and fun activities, including the opportunity to spot lion, giraffe, springbok, jackal, impala, ostrich, bat-eared fox and the elusive nocturnal porcupine.
