If you’ve never considered a wildlife safari in Botswana, these photographs are sure to convince you! Botswana’s vast wilderness is home to a mosaic of healthy ecosystems that have sustained healthy wildlife populations since explorers first visited the African bush decades ago.
Botswana is truly Africa as it used to be, boasting an extraordinary amount and diversity of wildlife. Herds of wild elephants roam the plains while antelope, giraffe and buffalo gather at watering holes. While lions mosey in the shade beneath mopane trees, leopards dangle from the large branches above. Nearby, spotted hyenas and packs of wild dogs scurry through the wetlands of the Okavango Delta in search of prey. The variety of rare wildlife species in Botswana will amaze even the most experienced safari-goers!
