Botswana is well known for having some of the best wilderness and wildlife areas on the African continent. With a full 38 % of its total land area devoted to national parks, reserves and wildlife management areas, traveling through many parts of the country gives off the feeling of moving through an immense nature wonderland. For the most parts, the parks are unfenced, allowing animals to roam wild and free.
Experience the stunning beauty of the world’s largest intact inland Delta – the Okavango; the unimaginable vastness of the world’s second largest game reserve – the Central Kalahari Game Reserve; the isolation and other-worldliness of the Makgadikgadi – uninhabited pans the size of Portugal; and the astoundingly prolific wildlife of the Chobe National Park.
Botswana is the last stronghold for a number of endangered bird and mammal species, including Wild Dog, Cheetah, Brown Hyena, Cape Vulture, Wattled Crane, Kori Bustard, and Pel’s Fishing Owl.
This makes your safari experience even more memorable to be surrounded by a rich variety of wild animals.
The first – and most lasting impressions – will be of vast expanses of uninhabited wilderness stretching from horizon to horizon, the sensation of limitless space, astoundingly rich wildlife and bird viewing, night skies littered with stars and heavenly bodies of an unimaginable brilliance, and stunning sunsets of unearthly beauty.
As more and more cultural tourism options are offered, you will be charmed by the people of Botswana, visiting their villages and experiencing first-hand their rich cultural heritage. But perhaps most of all, Botswana’s greatest gift is its ability to put us in touch with our natural selves.
Central Kalahari Game Reserve – The largest, most remotely situated reserve in Southern Africa and the second largest wildlife reserve in the world, encompassing 52,800 sq. km. During and shortly after good summer rains, the flat grasslands of the reserve’s northern reaches teem with wildlife, which gathers at the best grazing areas. These include large herds of springbok and gemsbok and wildebeest, hartebeest, eland and giraffe. Activity highlights include game drives, wilderness drives, and nature walks with the Basarwa.
Makgadikgadi Pans Game Reserve – This reserve offers good wildlife viewing in the wet season, particularly when great herds of zebra and wildebeest begin their westward migration to the Boteti region. Other species include gemsbok, eland and red hartebeest, kudu, bushbuck, duiker, giraffe, springbok, steenbok, and even elephant, with predators often trailing behind, waiting for an opportunity to strike. Patient game viewers may even spot the rare brown hyena.
Nxai Pan National Park – Part of the great Makgadikgadi complex, the park comprises several larger pans – Nxai Pan, Kgama-Kgama Pan and Kudiakam Pan, which were once ancient salt lakes. These larger pans are now grassed and scattered with acacia trees. The smaller pans fill with water attracting rich wildlife. December to April is the best period to visit as masses of herbivores such as zebra, springbok, wildebeest, elephant and giraffe migrate to feed on the new grass.
Chobe National Park – The most frequently visited of Botswana’s big game country, it is most famous for large herds of elephants and Cape Buffalo that converge on the riverbank to drink during the dry winter months. You may see as many 15 species of animals on any one drive. These include waterbuck, lechwe, puku (endemic to this area), giraffe, kudu, roan and sable, impala, warthog, bushbuck, monkeys and baboons, along with the predators such as lions, leopards, and hyenas.
Northern Tuli Game Reserve – NTGR comprises 71,000 hectares of remarkably diverse habitat, straddling the Shashe, Motloutse and Limpopo Rivers. Large herds of eland – often not seen elsewhere in Botswana – are present, and these are indeed an incredible sight. Travellers keen for a more active safari experience will delight in all there is on offer. You can hike the reserve, bike the reserve, horse-ride the reserve, and even hot air balloon the reserve!
Okavango Delta – The largest intact inland delta in the world, it is situated deep within the Kalahari Basin. Fed by the Okavango River, originating in the Angolan Highlands and often referred to as the ‘jewel’ of the Kalahari. Major tourist attractions are game viewing, birdwatching and boating in the many waterways, often in the traditional mokoro dug-out canoe. The region records 122 species of mammals, 71 species of fish, 444 species of bird, and 64 species of reptiles.
