Botswana is a landlocked country located in Southern Africa. The country is predominantly flat, tending toward gently rolling tableland. Botswana is dominated by the Kalahari Desert, which covers up to 70% of its land surface. The Okavango Delta, one of the world's largest inland deltas, is in the northwest. The Makgadikgadi Pan, a large salt pan, lies in the north. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast.
The Okavango Delta provides any visitor a complete, unique safari experience. The activities start from a light aircraft flight to your lodge which provides spectacular views of this amazing eco system. The traditional Mokoro excursion (local version of a canoe) is a highlight to visitors providing a unique perspective of these wildlife-rich waterways. The main safari focus is on game drives and walking safaris.
