Botswana

Chobe - Safari Country
On the extreme Northeast corner of Botswana lies the Chobe Reserve teaming with some of the densest concentrations of elephant, lion and zebra of anywhere in Africa. Vegetation varies from the tropical Linyanti to the severe desert landscape of the Savuti. Huge herds of Elephants, migrating Buffalo, zebra and wildebeest abound, along with the ever present predators.

Kalahari – Untamed Africa
This vast semi desert covers much of the land area of Botswana and is an intrepid wilderness isolated and raw. Dazzling white saltpans under baobab trees stretches of savannah where game is plentiful and the indelible imprint of the original San inhabitants, some of whom still live in the desert today.

Linyanti/Savuti
Savuti and Linyanti are part of the Chobe National Park. During the dry season, from May to the beginning of November, Savuti and Linyanti are amongst the best wilderness areas in Africa. North-east of the Delta is the private Linyanti Concession, which is 125 thousand hectares of land bursting with wildlife. The main attractions of the Linyanti are the Linyanti River, the woodlands of the interior, and of course, the famous Savuti Channel. The Channel?s claim to fame is its unexplained dry periods over the past century. Savuti is considered one of the best for viewing wildlife since most of the major species of Africa can be seen throughout the year. Also, the landscape has a wide range – from a scorching desert-like area to lush, green grasslands. The Savuti is a genuinely unique area.

Makgadikgadi Pans
The northeastern region of the Kalahari Basin contains the Makgadikgadi Pans - an extensive network of salt pans and ephemeral lakes, which was once an enormous lake of nearly 100 feet in depth and 30,888 sq. miles. It became a flatland after the climate changed several millennia ago. The area of Makgadikgadi is also very diverse-looking, from salt pans to grasslands, and woodlands to scrublands. Quite a bit of the Pans is lush grasslands that attracted great amounts of wildlife, even though it does not have very much rainfall.

Nxai Pans
Nxai Pan National Park calls the old Pandamatenga Trail (a trail once used for cattle drives) home. During the rainy season, staggering amounts of wildlife come to the area and they are accompanied by the predators who hunt them. The area is quite bumpy and requires a four-wheel drive vehicle to travel, but it is beautifully sprinkled with different kinds of plantlife and may closely resemble the Tanzanian Serengeti, minus the hustle and bustle.

Okavango Delta & the Moremi Game Reserve
A great floodplain fed by the Okavanga River rising in the Angolan Highlands and emptying into the vast delta of Botswana forming shallow reed beds, lily ponds and papyrus swamps. Glide thru these crystalline waters in mokoro canoes and see the profusions of bird, fish and game. Land and Water Activities available.

Selinda Spillway
An ephemeral waterway flowing Southwest, towards the Okavango Delta. The lagoon is home to a large population of hippo, which is a favorite of the region's lion. This may be the only place in the world where lion hunt hippo. Also, the game viewing is excellent and it includes cheetah, leopard, elephant, giraffe, kudu, impala, sable, wild dog, hyena and lechwe.

Tuli Block - Land of the Giants
This area forms a long, thin fringe of land demarcating Botswanas southeastern border and is readily accessible by road or air. This fascinating frontier will arouse the explorer in you with curious geographical features, Solomons Wall and the Tswapong and Lepokole hills where the ancestors of the San people left traces of their Rock paintings. Private game reserves dot the landscape where game is abundant.
