Botswana Safari Holidays

With almost 40% of the land use given over to national parks and game reserves, much of Botswana is an unspoiled wildlife haven and one of Africa’s premier safari destinations. Its seemingly endless savannas, huge clear blue skies, dramatic salt pans, diamond-rich deserts and fertile flood plains are spectacularly beautiful even by Africa’s exceptional standards. Unrestricted by fences, Botswana’s wildlife can move freely in large herds across the iconic Okavango Delta, Chobe River ecosystem and the salt pans of the Kalahari Desert. The pristine channels, lagoons and islands of the Okavango Delta create a unique wetland where game viewing by land and water is unparalleled.
 
Botswana Safari Holidays offers sustainable tourism at its very best, as Botswana has always followed a ‘high income – low impact’ approach. This huge but sparsely populated country is about the size of France, with much of its land devoted entirely to wildlife conservation, from the vast Chobe Game Reserve in the north, which supports the highest concentration of elephants in all of Africa, to the lush Moremi Game Reserve and Okavango Delta. The salt pans of Makgadikgadi and the arid Central Kalahari offer completely different landscapes.
 
Alexander McCall Smith introduced many of us to Botswana with his charming ‘No.1 Ladies Detective Agency’ novels. With its stable government and diamonds, it is today a very prosperous country and one of the safest in Africa. Many of the camps and lodges on Botswana safari holidays are remote and reached by light aircraft. It is a world-class safari destination that offers visitors a true wilderness experience and the prices in high season will reflect this.

The waters of the Okavango River flow south from Angola but they never reach the sea as they are absorbed into the parched desert sands of the Kalahari, creating a vast, pristine inland delta with seasonal floodplains. This beautiful and unique region attracts great flocks of birds and herd upon herd of plains game and the predators that stalk them.
 
Lion, leopard, cheetah and elephant can be seen on the delta islands, as can many species of antelope and buffalo, while pods of hippo make their home in the deeper, permanent water channels. Recorded bird species number almost 600 and include the much sought-after Pel’s fishing owl. Exploring the tranquil waters of the Okavango Delta by traditional mokoro canoe is the ideal way to get up close to the wildlife. Neighbouring Moremi Game Reserve is a good base for land-based game viewing on Botswana safari holidays.
 
Located in the centre of the country, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the second largest game reserve in the world. The Bushmen are hunter-gatherers and are the survivors of the indigenous San people of Southern Africa, although very few still live entirely by traditional skills. San guides at the camps in the Kalahari offer guests the unique and fascinating opportunity to learn the survival techniques that enable man to live in this harsh semi-desert environment.
 
The Kalahari Desert is one of the largest unbroken stretches of sand in the world and its arid scrubland, salt pans and seasonal rainfall support a surprising amount of wildlife. The rains come between November and March, transforming the parched landscapes. The sweet grasses grow and the salt pans fill with water, triggering an extensive migration to the region of thirsty wildebeest, zebra and antelope.
 
To the northeast the stark and fragile pans of the Makgadikgadi and Nxai National Parks provide breeding grounds for huge flocks of flamingo and pelican. In contrast to the lush and verdant Okavango Delta, the flat moon-like vistas here stretch for miles and you feel you can almost see the curvature of the earth. In the early months of each year, after the rains have transformed the salt pans into a series of streams and pools, Africa’s second largest migration occurs – with thousands and thousands of zebra and wildebeest moving over 150 miles from the Okavango Delta to Makgadikgadi. This is truly a spectacular sight on a Botswana safari holidays.
 
In the far north of Botswana, Chobe is famous for its huge river-based migrating herds and the largest concentration of elephants in all of Africa. Chobe National Park is uniquely situated at the confluence of the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers where four African countries meet – Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia. This is Botswana’s premier wildlife reserve and also one of the most accessible – surrounded by vast endless landscapes, open plains, baobab trees and abundant river-based wildlife. Together with the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area, this has created an extensive region rich in wildlife, especially in the dry season. Land-based game viewing is in open-top safari vehicles and river-based viewing is by shallow draft boat.
 
The permanent Chobe River forms the northern boundary of the park. Here you can overnight on a houseboat, which is especially popular for tiger fishing. The river eventually flows into the great Zambezi and it is here that one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders is found, the Victoria Falls. A short 2-hour transfer from Kasane takes you over the border to either the Zambian or Zimbabwean side of the falls and this is truly one of those lifetime experiences that travellers should not miss.
 
Further south within Chobe National Park, the Savuti Plains are another prime safari destination and have been the location for many wildlife documentaries. The seasonal Savuti channel flows intermittently from the Linyanti River into the Chobe River, turning the Savuti into a marsh. When dry, the expansive grasslands are rich with nutrients and many herds of plains game pass through on their annual migrations. Lion, hyena and elephant can be seen regularly here as well as the elusive leopard, on Botswana safari holidays.
 
To the northwest of Chobe, the Linyanti River marks the border of Botswana with Namibia’s Caprivi, and here river valleys and more open grassy plains are typical of the terrain. Lion, leopard and cheetah as well as many plains game and buffalo make their home here. This is one of the best places to see the endangered African wild dog and you may catch sight of an exciting hunt as a pack tries to chase down its dinner!
