Diamonds have placed Botswana on the map, but mineral wealth is secondary to its countless attractions. Unspoiled wilderness, waterways and sand dunes in an ambience of peace and tranquility makes this beautiful country the ‘Last Eden’ in Africa.
On any safari trips to Botswana, one will surely have to travel to the largest inland delta of Okavango, formed by rivers that never made it to the sea. UNESCO places Okavango Delta as a natural world heritage site in 2014 and it is not at all difficult to wonder why. Botswana is blessed with many beautiful reserves and an array of exceptional wildlife. In the middle of the delta, the Moremi Game Reserve stands and remains to be the most pristine wildlife sanctuary in Botswana. Game drives, going on a dug out mokoro ride along the placid waterways, taking to the air on a scenic helicopter ride over the delta are some of the activities one can expect on any luxury safari to Botswana.
Down at Linyati, explore the least disturbed wilderness where migrating elephants dominate the wildlife. Head to the Kalahari Desert, where desert adapted animals dominates the landscape and how about timing your trip to catch the zebra migration between Okavango Delta and Makgadikgadi Pans in search of fresh grazing?
The Okavango Delta is best during June to October when the delta is flooded while the Kalahari Desert is best during the wet months from November to March.
