Botswana offers one of the best wilderness experience in Africa and is often recommended to first time safari-goers in Africa as it produces such exceptional game viewing. Botswana's tourism model is based on low impact camps and high value safaris. So you can expect to find yourself surrounded by thousands of square kilometres of wilderness. Game viewing of lions, leopards and wild dogs in the Okavango is exceptional and so is the birding with more than 600 species. Combine the stark Kalahari Desert with the Okavango Delta's watery wilderness and you can be assured of diverse wildlife and story book scenery. A safari in Botswana is one that will always make you long to return.
