Wildlife Trips in Botswana

Botswana, unlike many other African countries, has a very small population, which has allowed much of the beautiful country to remain wild and unspoilt. This landlocked country is covered largely by the Kalahari Desert, but also features the world’s largest inland delta, the Okavango, which is an oasis of green all year round. 

Botswana is a treat for wildlife enthusiasts and is known for its excellent bird watching, with numerous national parks and game reserves spanning large unfenced areas. Bordered by Zambia, many visitors after experiencing the amazing wildlife of Botswana also choose to make a stop at the magnificent Victoria Falls.

Additional information

​Chobe National Park was the first to be created in Botswana, and has one of the largest concentrations of game on the continent. It’s probably best known for its astonishing elephant population. There are approximately 50,000 elephants residing in the park.

To the east of the Okavango Delta you’ll find Moremi Game Reserve, where you can see savannah game, plentiful birds on the lagoons, and leopards in the woods. There are over 500 different birds found in the reserve, as well as lions, cheetahs, impala and more. Work is being done here to protect the African wild dog, so it’s one of the best places to potentially see this rare species.

The Kalahari Desert is far from a lifeless expanse, and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve makes up an eleventh of Botswana’s total land area and is the second largest game reserve in the world. Here you’ll find giraffes, hyenas, warthogs, wildebeest, kudu, and big cats including lions and leopards.

Botswana is a remarkable wildlife destination that is growing in popularity and gaining a reputation for its excellent safari lodges and exceptional game viewing. With slightly higher prices than many other safari destinations, visitor numbers in Botswana are still relatively low: your wildlife experience here is likely to feel special and exclusive. This is certainly not a destination that wildlife lovers can afford to miss.
