Wild at Heart: In Love With a Botswana Safari
Resting silently in the arid grassland are a pair of black-maned Kalahari lions. On a Botswana safari holiday, this is not unexpected. In the enormous Kalahari Transfrontier Park these lions have become desert-adapted, and live alongside many other species: springbok, hyena, the very sociable meerkat, to name but a few.
In contrast to this arid region, flying into the Okavango Delta on a small plane reveals an ever-changing floodplain filled with rivers, lagoons, swamps, islands, and channels. Moremi Game Reserve, in the eastern part of the Delta, is surrounded by various unfenced and privately managed wildlife concessions.
Super luxurious bush camps and lodges in the Delta are exclusive, with excellent guides—among the best in Africa. To make the most of your time in this magnificent wilderness, you need to carefully select the right accommodations. That’s no easy task. Unless you have the knowledge and experience of an Enchanting Travels destination expert, who can guide you with the right choices, based on the season and your personal wildlife-viewing interests. Walking safaris, game drives, and water safaris—we can plan them all, to give you a comprehensive experience of this fascinating ecosystem. Picture this: As your mokoro (canoe) gently glides through the water, you spot a pod of submerged hippos. Colorful birds flit by or forage on the banks, while an African Fish Eagle suddenly sweeps down to grab its prey from the water.
Dense with animals is Chobe National Park in the country’s north, most famous for its huge herds of elephants adding up to an incredible 100,000 animals. We’ll book you into the best lodges along the Chobe riverfront, to make sure that so long you are in the area, your animal encounters never stop.
