Botswana Travel Guide

Botswana is a land of wild beauty and spectacular game reserves -- from the subtropical wilderness of the world famous Okavango Delta to Chobe National Park with its vast herds of elephant and the haunting, eerie splendour of the Kalahari desert.

The magnificent Okavango region lures many travellers to view the best of Africa's wildlife in the seclusion of private concession areas. The numerous game lodges and camps in the Okavango Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve are small and individualistic and offer unsurpassed luxury and comfort for discerning travellers.

However, Botswana also has the arid thirstlands -- the haunting beauty of the Central Kalahari desert and shimmering vistas of the Makgadikgadi Pans beckon those travellers who are seeking unique destinations.

And then there is Mashatu Game Reserve, the Land of Giants -- home to great baobab trees and elephant herds.

It is said that Botswana is where the soul is quenched and the spirit ignited, where the earth pulses beneath a vast african sky, where the traveller's reward is solitude, nurture and abundant African wildlife.

Accommodation ranges from upmarket lodges to rustic self-catering, tented camps:
