Overview

Botswana is a land-locked country dominated in geographical terms by the Kalahari Desert - a sand-filled basin averaging 1,100 metres above sea level Botswana is bordered by Zambia and Zimbabwe to the northeast, Namibia to the north and west, and South Africa to the south and southeast. The more popular destinations in Botswana includes Chobe National Park, Okavango Delta as well as the Kalahari desert and the Makgadikgadi  Pans. The Okavango is the largest inland delta system in the world a bit smaller than Isreal or half of Switzerland. The northeastern region of the Kalahari Basin contains the Makgadikgadi Pans - an extensive network of salt pans and ephemeral lakes. When planning your holiday to Botswana, we would always recommend spending time in at least two of the main destinations within Botswana.
