Botswana’s diverse habitats range from the Kalahari Desert, which covers 70% of the land, to the Okavango Delta, one of the world’s largest inland deltas, and the once-great Lake Makgadikgadi, which has left behind salt pans attracting numerous species of birds and wildlife during the rainy season.

Overview

This 8 day Tour will take through one of the best safari country in the World ,Botswana. The Chobe national park with an area of 11 700 sq km is home to huge herds of elephants and ape buffaloes alongside other grazers and browsers like kudus, giraffes, mountain zebras, impalas, bush pigs and many more. As usual; these also draw a lot of carnivores as well including lions, leopards, cheaters, and other cats. The food web would not leave out scavengers like vultures and hyenas. It’s the concentration of an animal kingdom, the most common ones found in Africa.&;

To drive to Kasane from Maun is incredible with ever changing landscape and vegetation. From the bushy savanna woodlands to the open dry Kalahari desert sands with patches of mopane and acacia woodlands. A stop at the elephant sands will take one’s breath away as you start to understand the behavior and culture of the biggest land mammal, the elephant.

As you delve into the Okavango Delta it’s a whole different scene of water and reeds everywhere. The Okavango Delta is 2, 023, 590 ha in size and the World’s biggest inland delta. Quite impressive campsites mushroom the Okavango delta offering game drives, mokoro/ wooden canoe trips and walking safaris where you get as close to wildlife like never before.
