Places to go in Botswana
Explore the many game reserves and national parks, including Chobe National Park, famed for its growing herds of elephants. Take a safari along the Chobe River, a wide eco-system filled with hippos, crocodiles and birds. Further inland is the huge Central Kalahari Game Reserve, a desert spanning over 20,000 square miles where you can enjoy a jeep safari in search of the giraffes, hyenas and the king of the Kalahari, the Lion.
Discover the Okavango Delta in the comfort of a traditional canoe guided by local bushman. Glide quietly through the reeds to explore an untouched landscape filled with birds, hippos and elephants.
Hike the Tsodilo Hills to witness the vast rock formations split across three hills. Believed by the local San people to be the resting places of their ancestors, the rocks also feature ancient paintings of local tribes from thousands of years ago.
Another breathtaking landscape is the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans; once a huge lake it now remains a salt pan situated amid a dry savanna. Tour the rural scenery, home to many wild animals including a large population of lions. Need some help deciding where to go? Call us now on: 01483 319 333
