Botswana Explorer 2022 - 7 Days

Botswana is a country of abundant nature and wildlife in the world. Botswana Explorer 2022 gives you a preview of life in a semi-desert, where humans and nature harmoniously live. The Khoisan and the Tswana people have rich traditions that has been kept sacred to their land. In a vast country of close to 600 000 sq km, only 2.5 million people live here making it one of the most sparsely populated in the world.

But there is much more to Botswana Explorer 2022 and safari that makes it stand-out. Its size is relatively the same as that of France or Madagascar. The Kalahari desert takes 70% of the land. The Okavango Delta, one of the biggest inland deltas in the world lies in the northern part with a buffer zone of 22 000 sq km. It gives a semi-forest wetlands in what could have been just a desert. In the north-east is the once very big lake Makgadikgadi. It has since dried up and left salt pans, which suppress growth of vegetation. Yet during the rain season the salt pans attract many species of birds and wildlife.

Clearly wildlife habitat is diverse in Botswana. From the delta to the Kalahari desert, the grasslands and savannas where grazers are mostly found. The Chobe National Park lies close to the confluence of the Chobe river and the Zambezi River, the fourth biggest in Africa. The park is 11 000 sq km and has the largest concentration of the African elephant, close to 205 000.

Chobe National park and Moremi Game Reserve are mostly visited tourist destinations in Botswana. Makgadikgadi Pans and Central Kalahari Game reserves are other interesting destinations for wild safari. Best Botswana Safari Tour gives you all these destinations in 10 days. Experience fun in the wild in Africa’s best country for safari. In the remote jungle where 4×4 vehicles and mokoro traditional wooden boats can explore.
