The Okavango Delta is one of Botswana’s highlights and is home to large concentrations of big game. The best way to travel in this iconic wetland paradise is by traditional canoe - a mokoro - where a local poler will expertly steer you through the river channels, pointing out birds, elephants and hippos as you silently pass by. It is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Botswana.
This endless landscape of white in Makgadikgadi is mesmerising. Formed when ancient lakes dried, it is now part of the largest network of salt pans in the world. Surprisingly it supports a huge variety of wildlife - from friendly meerkats to vast zebra migrations pursued by lions.
If you love elephants, Botswana has the highest concentration of these great beasts in the world and the Linyanti Wetlands is one of the best places to spot them! You are pretty much guaranteed to see large herds wandering about nearly everywhere you go.
Chobe National park is one of Botswana’s best safari locations, packed with wildlife that roams its sweeping grasslands and stunning riverbanks. One of the best experiences here is to take a boat trip along the river, where you will see elephants frolicking in the water right in front of you!
