Botswana

There are only a few places in the world, which are truly untouched and Botswana definitely ranks high among them. Animals roam freely and there are no fences, the landscape changes from saltpan deserts to a lush, flooded wildlife utopia within mere kilometres.
OVERVIEW

Botswana is a large country in size, but has only a population of just over 2 million people. In these sparsely populated lands, nature reigns supreme.

Expect elephants crossing the road or lions roaring passed your tent at night. The two dominating landscapes are the Kalahari Desert in the central and southern part and the Okavango Delta in the north. The latter is flooded each year by mountain rains rushing in from Angola and is exploding with an unmatched plethora of wildlife, the ultimate hotspot for an African safari.

In the northeast, the largest elephant and buffalo herds in Africa roam Chobe National Park, while active meerkats are the main attraction in the endless nothingness of the Magkadagkadi Pans. Travel to Botswana with AMADI and include it in your very own Africa tour, combining it with neighbouring South Africa.
