Ever since Laurens van der Post captivated readers with his tales of the Lost World of the Kalahari, Botswana has loomed large in the imagination of the would-be explorer. And you can still live out those fantasies today.
A land of fewer than 2.5 million souls in an area of 600,000 square kilometres, this is one of the remotest parts of Africa. As well as the Kalahari desert, a magnet for antelope and, thus, the big predators, the Chobe National Park in the north of the country is not to be missed. Here, you’ll also find the Okavango: an inland river delta that seasonally floods the plains. And of course, where there is water, there are animals. Here, you can get some spectacular sightings of buffalo, giraffe, elephant, hippopotamus and many other species, all drawn by the water and the lush pasture. In this terrain, a canoe safari can give you a different outlook; elsewhere, tours can happen on four wheels or on foot, with expert guides, for maximum exposure.
