Botswana provides some of the best safari experiences in Africa. Wildlife viewing is wonderful all year round, especially for large predators and herds of elephants. There are three main regions or ecosystems that can be visited; the Okavango Delta and Moremi areas being an amazing watery world attracting and sustaining a wealth of animal life.
The Linyanti and Chobe area in the northern part of the country is well known for elephant herds congregating along the rivers during the dry season. The Kalahari desert to the south of the Okavango is best visited between December and May when lush grasslands attract desert wildlife and predators such a cheetah and lion.
Accommodation in Botswana varies from 5 star luxury lodges to rustic camping safaris, and regardless to what type of safari appeals to you, Botswana has always maintained a quality over quantity policy with limits placed on numbers of people visiting each wilderness area.
