Information on the Safari Regions of Botswana

A vast and sparsely populated country, bordered by South Africa, Zambia and Namibia, Botswana’s landscape is a study of contrasts - an expanse of savannahs, deserts, wetlands and salt pans stretching from the red desert dunes of the Kalahari, home of the Bushmen, to the lush green of the waterways of the Okavango Delta. The varied landscapes change with the seasons meaning that, in Botswana, every safari is unique. Botswana is home to a diverse wildlife population, including species such as elephant, various antelope, kudu, giraffe, cheetah, ostrich, leopard, wild dog, lion and more. Tourism was identified decades ago as the best way to create a sustainable industry that employs a large number of its people, while still preserving the environment. The country’s commitment to conservation has resulted in an excellent reputation for environmental tourism. The focus is on high-quality and authentic wildlife experiences.

Maun

Botswana’s tourism capital lies on the southern fringes of the Okavango Delta, and still, despite recent modern developments, the town carries the feeling of a dusty, frontier town. For many tourists, Maun is the point of entry into the Delta with direct air connections from Johannesburg, Windhoek and locally Kasane and Botswana Capital, Gaborone.
