Ian_708_03_Baby_Elephant,_Chobe_River,_BotswanaBotswana is home to more elephants than any other country. This is the kingdom where all animals roam free and the site of two iconic African landscapes, the Okavango Delta and Kalahari Desert. Put all of these factors in an equation and it is impossible not to come to the conclusion that it equals the best destination in wild Africa.

Botswana hosts two of Africa’s largest animal migrations namely the zebra and antelope migration across Makgadikgadi and Savute every summer. This is a truly extraordinary site and but one reason why you should fall in love with Botswana. If you are not already convinced, here follows more reasons.

Stunning Accommodation

You can choose to stay in a luxury lodge with a spa and works or rough it at one of the self-service camp sites. Botswana offers accommodation to fit every budget. No matter where you choose to stay, you will be close enough to the magnificent wildlife to have your breath knocked out of you.

Explore the ancient San rock paintings

 

The Kalahari desert is the colossal home to the San people who are famous for their rock art. In Tsodilo Hills, there are over 3 000 ancient San rock paintings for you to explore. Some of the art dates back as much as 20 000 years back. This site is most likely the highest point in Botswana and has been proclaimed a World Heritage site.

 

Speaking of the Kalahari Desert…

The Central Kalahari Game Reserve stretches 54 600 square km and is the largest reserve in Botswana. Just imagine the huge variety of animals you will get to see, you won’t have enough space on your camera for all of the pictures.

Yellow HornbillElephants are probably the most majestic of the Big Five and the Chobe National Park is home to the largest elephant population in Africa. Just one experience up close and personal with one of these creatures… words can’t describe.
