Safari Packages That Include The Okavango Delta, Moremi, Chobe And Central Kalahari In Botswana
Botswana is where you find some of the last remote wilderness destinations left in Africa: the Chobe National Park, the Okavango Delta, Kalahari Desert Game Reserve, and the salt pans of the Makgadikgadi National Park.
The country remains primarily untouched and unspoiled and the place to find Africa's most diversified wildlife amongst the spectacular vistas. You can explore one of nature's great contrasts where the Kalahari Desert encounters the natural wonder of the Okavango.
A landlocked country in Southern Africa that has a rich wildlife heritage. The country is often referred to as the "Land of Giants" because of its ancient baobab trees and free-roaming elephant herds. Home to the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland deltas, which provides a habitat for a wide variety of mammals.
An excellent destination for those who want to experience the beauty of Africa's landscapes and wildlife. National Parks that must be visited include; the Chobe National Park (and Chobe River), Moremi Game Reserve, Makgadikgadi Pans and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The four national parks and games reserves combined with the Okavango Delta would rival any safari destination in Africa and Southern Africa for both birdlife and wildlife viewing.
Without question, one of Africa's top destinations and a must for anyone interested in photographic safaris.

When is the best time to safari Botswana?
The best time to visit Botswana safari is between May and October (peak season), with cooler daily temperatures and the Okavango in flood.
NOTE: game viewing when on safari is also widely regarded as the best during the winter months (the dry season).
Over the past few years, the summer months, known as the "green season" or "rainy season" (November to April), have become hugely popular for those seeking an escape from the Northern hemisphere's cold. Yes, the days are hot, but the birdlife is exceptional, as is the zebra migration across the Kalahari Desert.
The best time to visit Botswana or anywhere in Africa is when you have the time available. So no matter the time of year, you will see, photograph and experience the very best in wildlife.
