About Botswana Safari
A Botswana safari is one of Africa’s top experiences for visitors, with first class game encounters in a wildlife oasis. Vast tracts of wilderness in pristine condition are home to huge herds of game, roaming unrestricted between the Kalahari’s plains and the waterways of the Okavango. The Okavango Delta and the Chobe River provide a year-round water supply, and is a haven for African Wildlife, offering one of a kind game experiences. The vast majority of southern African mammal species and plains game are present in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve and Chobe National Park. The Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans National Park provides a refuge for herds of wildebeest, zebra and other mammals, who migrate annually in search of permanent water and stable food supplies. With a network of pristine reserves and private concessions dotting the landscape, Botswana safari offers an exclusive and intimate African experience. A big 5 haven, the rich wildlife reserves are known for diverse game encounters and unforgettable experiences.
Botswana Safari offers a picture perfect encounter with the unspoiled natural beauty of this spectacular terrain, and the animal and bird life it is home to. A favourite excursion amongst travellers to the Okavango are the traditional Makoro canoes, winding through the reed lined channels of the delta. A birders paradise, this region is home to a wonderfully diverse animal kingdom. The Kalahari Desert, a semi-arid expanse of sandy valleys and bushy shrubs, covers nearly 85% of Botswana, excluding the delta regions. Botswana is old Africa, and while it is thriving and stable as an economy, it offers minimal western infrastructure. This relaxed country is a real African experience, and self-drive is not for the faint hearted. Greatest Africa are Southern Africa travel specialists, based in Cape Town, South Africa.
