BOTSWANA is all about the
wildlife. Huge herds of game wander the plains, The Chobe National
Park particularly remarkable for its 60,000 plus elephants, not to
mention its predatory lions, leopards and cheetahs. Yet for a
safari experience with a difference come to the Okavango Delta.
This wetland paradise in the Kalahari Desert features swamps,
islands, flood plains and reed beds; the most memorable way of
viewing its incredible wildlife is by mokoro, a shallow dug-out
canoe which glides around the waterways in total silence.
When to visit:
Visit during the dry winter months between April and
August - the Okavango Delta usually floods between May and October
and most camps offer mokoros as an activity.
