Here at Revere Travel we rate Botswana as one of Africa’s top safari destinations. Although 40% of the country’s land area has been given over to national parks and private game reserves, they remain totally unfenced. This means that the wildlife is allowed to roam freely through the natural habitats, meaning spectacular game viewing is available in all of the parks.
Botswana is blessed with some of Africa’s most beautiful wilderness areas. The Okavango Delta supports some of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa and is one of the continent’s ultimate safari destinations. Each year, Botswana is transformed into a flourishing ecological paradise, courtesy of tectonic plate shifts that swell the Kwando River and flood the plains. The water turns the dry earth into a land of plenty, which in turn draws the wildlife to drink and graze in almost incomprehensible numbers.
To the northeast of the Delta is Chobe National Park. The major feature of the park is its elephant population, which migrates seasonally and congregates in vast numbers along its two rivers during the dry season, which is traditional game-viewing time, but the wet season - November to April - brings the added dimension of lush vegetation and dramatic skyscapes, perfect for bird-watchers and photographers.
We at Revere Travel recommend you spend at least some of this dream holiday in at least one of the luxurious safari camps, which offer a civilised way to enjoy Botswana and are the perfect 'back to nature' experience.
