Being nestled between Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa, the country is defined by two remarkable contrats. On the one hand there is the Okavango Delta with a sheer unimaginable variety of animal and plant life. But only a few kilometers outside of the wetlands the dry Kalahari Desert extends over the greatest part of Botswana. Here only the most specialized plants and animals have a chance of survival. The combination of these two very different habitats, the impressive wildlife and the astounding flora, the seemlingly endless plains and the untouched nature surely are Botswanas biggest treasure. Any trip to Botswana promisses to be both an adventure and full of variety.
- Chobe National Park: With 11.000 km² of bush, grassland and forest, Chobe National Park is home to Botswana's most varied wildlife. The Riverfront strip along the northern part of the park supports the greatest wildlife contrations, with large herds of Elephants, Lions, Buffalos, Hippopotamus, Zebras, Gnus and most of the African antelope species.
- Moremi Wildlife Reserve: The Moremi Wildlife Reserve is part of the Okavango Delta and is an officially designated area for wildlife protection. It comprises of two large islands which rise between the vast wetlands, which are home to some of the biggest concentrations of wildlife in the whole of Southern Africa.
- Makgadikgadi Pans: Botswana's great salt pans, Sua and Ntwetwe Pans, comprise the 80.000 km² Makgadikgadi Pans and are like no other landscape on earth. Especially during the sizzling heat of late winter days, the stark pans take on a disorienting and ethereal austerity. Heat images destroy all sense of space or direction, imaginary lakes shimmer and disappear, ostriches fly and stones turn to mountains and float in mid-air.
