Our previous halts in Johannesburg, Victoria Falls, and Botswana’s Chobe National Park were delightful. The stops rejuvenated us to no end. It left us with pleasant memories that remain etched in our minds.
We enjoyed a once in a lifetime opportunity on our Botswana Okavango delta safari. We got to explore Africa’s largest elephant concentration and its thriving wildlife. Chobe National Park contains endangered and endemic animal species and beautiful, colorful birds. We also got an up close and personal view of its unique ecosystem. There were panoramic stretches of its floodplains, wetlands, grasslands and savannas.
We completed a marvelous 2-night stay at the verdant park. The next memorable stopover of our Botswana Okavango Delta safari was a small, private camp. It is called Sanctuary Baines’ Camp. It’s set against the picturesque backdrop of the stunning Okavango Delta.
The Southern African country of Botswana is one of the least populated nations in the world. However, its gifts lie in many other aspects. It enjoys the distinction of being one of the fastest growing economies in the world. It’s also one of Africa’s most stable countries.
Although Botswana is a landlocked country, it’s also gifted with raw nature all around it. It’s home to sprawling and isolated landscapes. These vistas never fail to astonish travelers with their uncanny aura of otherworldliness.
Botswana has a diverse and prolific wildlife habitat. That’s what makes it one of the most amazing safari destinations in Botswana and in the whole of Africa. The flat topography is dominated by the arid Kalahari Desert. There’s an added presence of deltas, rivers and river basins. They help make postcard-pretty Botswana a delight for wildlife enthusiasts and avid birders.
There are spectacular game reserves and national parks, along with top-class camping options. Remote safari camps and camping grounds give adventure-seekers an experience of a lifetime.
Exhilarating leisure activities include road and boat safaris, river cruises and quad biking. You can also take part in Mokoro excursions (a type of canoe), elephant riding, bird watching or fishing. Tourists come from faraway places to enjoy a Botswana Okavango delta safari in this breathtaking destination in Africa.
