The best places to visit in Botswana

The diverse wetlands of Botswana offer a completely different style of safari. The country’s stand-out safari destination is Chobe National Park, famous for its vast herds of elephants; spot them splashing by the riverbanks on a relaxing boat cruise. Alternatively, navigate the beautiful, reed-lined waterways of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro (dugout canoe) and look out for hippos, lions and rhinos, as well as numerous bird species.

Chobe boat safari

Elephants, elephants, elephants

The size of a small country, Chobe National Park is known for its picturesque rivers and wide floodplains that draw crocodiles, antelopes and hippos, among others. But most of all, Chobe is known for its vast herds of elephants. Strap yourself in for a 4X4 adventure safari or cruise the Chobe River for a different perspective – see the animals as they drink and socialise on the banks or, if you’re lucky, spot elephants crossing the water using their trunks as snorkels. This area is also exceptionally good for bird safaris, with over 460 species recorded in the park.

Guided mokoro safaris

The crystal clear waterways and rich wildlife of the Okavango Delta are one of Africa’s top sights. Set off into the Moremi Game Reserve or cruise the Okavango River in a mokoro (dugout canoe) to spot elephants, crocodiles, buffalo, lion, cheetah, leopard, rhino and more, or soar high above the vast expanse of the Okavango Delta in a light aircraft and keep your eyes peeled for herds of elephants marching across the plains below.

Vast salt pans

Accounting for over 6,000 square miles of the Kalahari Basin, the incredible Makgadikgadi salt pans are an almost inhabitable wilderness filled with unforgettable other-worldly landscapes. Come in the dry for endless sweeps of bright white emptiness, or come the rains, when the scenery is transformed to lush greens and the wildlife, including huge flocks of flamingos, returns. Look out for cheetah, wildebeest, zebra and lions among the baobab trees.
