Botswana is one of the greatest African countries to go on safari. Blessed with incredible wildlife viewing, you’ll be in awe each day. If you’ve come here to see the ‘Big 5’, you’re in luck – the chances of seeing all of them are very high. Don’t miss the Okavango Delta, an inland flood plain of islands, palm trees, wildlife, and waterways. This is where dugout canoes are used to navigate past elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on dry land for views of epic wildlife including lions, rhinos and giraffes. Travel to Botswana generally includes a visit to Chobe National Park or the Kalahari Desert, or both.
More than a third of this landlocked, African nation borders with South Africa, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Botswana is a popular country for travellers on overland expeditions on the continent. The colours, the wildlife, the epic panoramas and the smiling locals is what most people remember from their time spent in Botswana. This is a fantastic country for beginner travellers visiting Africa for the first time. If you’re heading to Africa – this country has to go on your bucket list.
