Botswana is the Jewel of Africa for unspoilt wilderness experiences. This country is situated in the Southern African region and the Northern two thirds lie within the Tropics. It borders South Africa in the south, Namibia in the West, Angola and Zambia in the north and Zimbabwe in the east.
Botswana is unique in that it is one of the few African countries with a multi party democracy.
The political and economical stability of Botswana makes it one of the safest and most attractive tourist destinations in Africa.

Okavango Delta Chobe National Park
OKOVANGO DELTA – A Prime Safari Destination
  The Okavango Delta, which incorporates the Moremi Game Reserve, is a unique ecosystem in that it is situated in the middle of the largest stretch of continuous sand in the world – the Kalahari Basin. This wetland lies like an oasis in an otherwise inhospitable landscape. The vegetation is lush, but very fragile and the wildlife is of the very best to be seen in Africa.

The Okavango Delta is situated in northern Botswana, has no natural outlet to the sea and is a vast and unique eco-system covering 15000 sq. km of African wilderness. Numerous well-equipped safari camps within the swamps serve the visitor, providing for every need, making the region one of the prime safari destinations in Africa.

No visit to Botswana can be considered complete without time spent in the pristine environment of the Okavango marshlands. An experience of a lifetime!

CHOBE NATIONAL PARK - Magical Wildlife
  This National Park located in the northern region of Botswana, is an outstanding wildlife wilderness area. The Chobe is watered principally by the Chobe and Savuti rivers, attracting huge concentrations of game, particularly elephant and lion in some of the highest densities in Africa.

The Chobe is made up of four distinct regions:

Savute is located 180 km north of Maun in the Western section of Chobe. This region is Africa's most densely populated predator area and also hosts the greatest concentration of plains antelope, zebra and wildebeest, in Southern Africa.
Nowhere else will the visitors find such a wealth of wildlife.

The vast Kalahari, situated across the western reaches of Botswana, is one of the greatest ecological treasures and wilderness areas of the world.
Protected by its sheer size and the scarcity of surface water the Kalahari has remained unspoilt by the encroaching pressures of civilisation.
The thrill of the Kalahari lies in its remoteness, the wildlife, the harsh, but beautiful landscape, the great sky and the silence of this pristine African eco-system.

The Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pan National Parks, the famous salt pans of north central Botswana, are the largest in the world.
The area is remote, even by Botswana standards and herein lies the attraction. The pans become the feeding and breeding grounds for huge flocks of greater flamingos, pelicans and other water bird species. On the perimeter of the pans live a wide variety of the plains game and predators.
