For anyone looking for an exciting vacation, Botswana is an excellent choice in destination. Located in the southern part of Africa, Botswana offers a unique experience that will be sure to amaze you.
With all of the fascinating wildlife in Botswana, one of the most enjoyable and amazing things that you can do in the area is to take part in a safari. The country contains beautiful scenery, magnificent game and incredible national parks which makes this a perfect area for visitors to be enchanted by. Botswana is home to more elephants than anywhere else in the world and to see them together is such a privilege. You will also be able to view giraffes, zebras, rhinos, cheetahs, hippos, buffalo, antelopes and many more – this list is almost endless!
While on your safari you get to see, in their natural habitat, such a wide range of creatures. From the magnificent birds (such as flamingos, eagles, vultures and many more species) to reptiles, such as crocodiles, large pythons and cobras. Believe it or not these are common things to see while taking a safari.
One of the best things about a safari in Botswana is that they can be catered to meet your needs. If you want a luxury holiday, you can stay in lavish accommodation with every little detail taken care of; however, if you are on a budget there are plenty of options too, you can stay in a more inexpensive camp and still have a great experience.
You can enjoy spending time on the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, which has such a diverse plant and animal population. Here you can have the fun of travel in a Mokoro, which is an old canoe, but don’t let that put you off! The Reserve is a strikingly beautiful area of the country.
Another exciting thing to see in Botswana is of course the famous Okavango Delta, which is the largest inland delta in the world. There are lakes, channels and lagoons that comprise the delta and the waters are clear and the river is clean. If you are lucky on your timing you may get to witness a seasonal flood. While this sounds scary, it is actually incredibly interesting to see what happens once a dry area turns into life! The Okavango Delta also contains thousands of different species of mammals, birds, fish and insects. Once again the nature and natural beauty in Botswana is mind-blowing.
When on a Botswana Safari, the greatest piece of advice is ‘do not forget your camera’, as the country is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. You can see and record all of the natural beauty that the country has to offer, from breath-taking sunsets to incredible wildlife and then when home review it all again! Perhaps have that gorgeous sunset picture you took blown up and made into a canvass?
