A landlocked country of wildlife-filled wetlands and desert sands, diamond mines and red bush tea, Botswana is one of Africa’s most stable nations. Enter Chobe National Park to safari past prides of lion, then cruise down the Chobe River to see wading elephants and pink-eared hippos. Travel south to the Okavango Delta – home to everything from big cats to buffaloes. Glide through the reed beds in a traditional mokoro and listen for frogs, kingfishers and bee-eaters. Journey south to the dry riverbeds of the Kalahari Desert, where you can follow rhino on foot, meet San Bushmen and discover ancient rock art.
