Botswana Safaris

A landlocked country straddling the Tropic of Capricorn, Botswana offers one of the last unspoiled wildernesses in Africa. Most of the country is covered by the vast arid expanse of the Kalahari Desert, and in the north-western corner lies one of the great natural wonders of the world, the Okavango Delta. It’s the largest inland delta on Earth, and a haven for an overwhelming abundance of wildlife, including Elephant, Giraffe, Lion, African Wild Dog and many other charismatic species.

Remarkably for an African country, Botswana has a tiny population. Just over two million inhabitants occupy this nation that is the size of France and Germany together!

Nearly one fifth of its area is given over to its huge national parks and extensive game reserves.
