A landlocked country teeming with game and birdlife, with contrasting landscapes and quality tented camps and lodges. A kaleidoscope of images will return home with you: that malachite kingfisher perfectly mirrored in the still waters of the Okavango Delta; lion cubs cavorting on the plains at Savuti; the sun kissing the spiral curves of a kudu bull's horns as he gazes in the dawn light at Linyanti; the vast breeding herds of elephant that you encountered having a mud bath on the banks of the Chobe River at dusk; and a meercat sentry standing tall on a tree stump in the Kalahari Desert.
The Okavango Delta in Northern Botswana, a vast area of crystal clear water which is home to an amazing variety of birdlife and wildlife. Fed by floodwater from the Angolan highlands in June, it fans out into a shifting web of palm fringed channels, lagoons and islands and gently soaks away into the Kalahari desert to the south.
