botswana - remote wilderness and safari destination

"Botswana - One of the Greatest Safari Destinations on Earth!"

Botswana is one of the oldest countries in southern Africa to have successfully moved into independence. Through this has come stability, solid financial growth, exceptionally high levels of respect for the environment and in line with government’s directive, placed great credence in limiting the human footprint in their pristine wildlife areas.

Botswana is widely regarded as having some of the best wilderness and wildlife areas on the African continent. With 38 percent of its total land area devoted to national parks, reserves and wildlife management areas – for the most part unfenced, allowing animals to roam wild and free – travel through many parts of the country has the feeling of moving through an immense nature wonderland. Botswana is a rarity in our overpopulated, over-developed world. It is one of the last great refuges for nature’s magnificent spectacle of life.

Botswana is home for a number of endangered bird and mammal species, including Wild Dog, Cheetah, Brown Hyena, Cape Vulture, Wattled crane, Kori Bustard and Pel’s Fishing Owl.

Experience here the magnificent beauty of the world’s largest intact inland Delta – the Okavango; the indescribable vastness of the world’s second largest game reserve – the Central Kalahari Game Reserve; the isolation and other-worldliness of the Makgadikgadi – uninhabited pans the size of Portugal; and the astoundingly prolific wildlife of the Chobe National Park.
