Botswana

Botswana

Botswana has a unique blend of magnificent wildlife regions, from the searing mirages of the Kalahari desert to the lush waterways of the Okavango Delta. This is a country with a proud history of wildlife management and conservation, making it one of Africa's premier safari destinations. Intriguing landscapes, abundant wildlife and a myriad of bird species await the traveler.

The Kalahari is the largest sand basin in the world, stretching 1,560 miles (2,500km) from the northern part of South Africa, through Namibia and Angola and ending in the DRC (Congo). It may have no permanent surface water, but unlike the image of most deserts, the Kalahari is well vegetated with a wide variety of habitats including acacia trees and areas of flat grasslands that seem to stretch forever.

The Chobe River has its origins in the highlands of Angola and once it enters Botswana, it goes through several name changes. It enters as the Kwando River and immediately becomes the Linyanti, then the Itenge and is finally called the Chobe River. Knowing this may avoid confusion when looking at maps or reading information.

Recognised as a prime game viewing area, the Savuti (also spelt Savute), covers almost 1,930 sq. miles (5,000 square km) in the south west of Chobe National Park.
