Elephant takes a cool dip in the river

From delta to salt pans: In close contact with the majestic wildlife

The boundless beauty of the country attracts all those who want to experience the wilderness in its purest form: Botswana turns out to be a true natural paradise for wild animals and lush plant worlds!

Experience a journey through breathtaking natural beauty in the heart of southern Africa: From a spectacularly beautiful river delta, across vast salt plains to fossilized river beds that lead you to an impressive and diverse wildlife. The Okavango Delta reveals itself as a true natural wonder that can be admired in its full splendor, especially from the air in a hot air balloon or small plane. On the ground, the journey in a traditional dugout canoe gliding through dense, seasonally flooded greenery is an unforgettable experience. Anyone who thinks that after this experience there is no more captivating landscape to expect in Botswana is mistaken: the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park beckons with several thousand square kilometers of salty land. Only grass savannahs and a few trees adorn the impressive salt pans.

After this lonely area, you can look forward to great game viewing in the Moremi Game Reserve. In addition to lions, zebras and elephants, many other animal inhabitants await you here. There is also a good chance of seeing the coveted Big Five in Botswana, which are made up of elephants, rhinos, buffalos, lions and leopards. In the Nxai Pan National Park, an elephant can walk right in front of your feet. But the safari offers more than just encounters with large, wild animals; near the salt pans of Ntwetwe Pan, charming meerkat colonies provide a delightful end to your adventure.

Have you been bitten by the adventure bug? Then set off into the big wide world of Botswana!

In Botswana, under the starry sky, I experienced the magic of the wilderness up close. Every encounter, whether with a leopard or the gentle giants of the Okavango Delta, is unique and deeply moving. Botswana is more than a destination; it is an adventure waiting to be discovered.

Worth knowing about Botswana

Best time to visit Botswana: when the wilderness comes to life

The perfect time to travel to Botswana is from May to October, during the dry season, when the weather is mild and the scenery is breathtaking. This time is magical; the waters of the delta attract animals in droves and the dry vegetation makes Africa's majestic inhabitants, such as elephants, lions and rare wild dogs, easily visible. The days are pleasantly warm while the nights can be cool, which not only makes the experience more comfortable but also encourages animal activity. The dry season also offers a unique opportunity to experience the Okavango Delta in all its glory, when floodwaters arrive from the Angolan highlands and make unique boat safaris possible. These months combine perfect weather, excellent game viewing and the chance to enjoy Botswana's natural wonders to the full.

Botswana's safari paradise: Okavango, Chobe and Kalahari

Botswana, a jewel in the heart of Africa, is blessed with some of the most spectacular safari regions in the world. The Okavango Delta, a marvel of nature, is transformed annually into a lush wildlife paradise when the waters arrive from the Angolan Highlands. Here, elephants cruise through waterways while colorful bird species grace the skies. Chobe National Park, known for having the largest elephant population in Africa, offers unparalleled viewing opportunities of these majestic animals, especially along the Chobe River. In addition to elephants, the park is home to lions, leopards and a variety of antelope species. The Kalahari Desert reveals another side of Botswana - a vast, open land, home to the San Bushmen, with unique wildlife such as the rare meerkat, the striped wildebeest and the impressive black-maned Kalahari lion. Each of these regions offers unique experiences and insights into the incredible diversity and beauty of the African wilderness.
