Okavango Delta Botswana

Formerly the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, Botswana adopted its new name upon independence in 1966. Four decades of uninterrupted civilian leadership, progressive social policies, and significant capital investment have created a dynamic economy in Africa. Mineral extraction, principally diamond mining, dominates economic activity. Though tourism is a growing sector due to the country’s conservation practices and extensive nature preserves. Today, Botswana is one of Africa’s most progressive and comprehensive programs for dealing with the disease. Popular safari destinations are Chobe and Okavango Delta in Botswana.

The meandering Okavango Delta

Botswana is one of the finest tourist destinations on the African continent. The Okavango, which originates in the uplands of Angola to the north-west, flows into and then spreads over the sandy spaces of the Kalahari to form an immense and wondrous inland delta of lagoon and labyrinthine channel, palm-fringed island and fertile floodplain. A number of safari lodges and camps have been established in and around this watery wilderness. This wilderness and the nearby game-rich Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park
reserves, offer the visitors the best of several worlds, appealing variously to the game-viewer and bird-watcher, the hunter and the sporting fisherman, the explorer of hidden places and the lover of Africa in its loveliest and least spoilt state.

From the calcrete floors and ancient baobabs of the Makgadikgadi Pans to the savannah grasslands of Chobe National Park and the mophane woodland of the Tuli Block, there is a wide variety of wildlife in Botswana.
However, it is in the Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve that visitors will find unforgettable beauty. In the lush indigenous forests of the delta and its islands, and along the floodplains spawned by this great marriage of water and sand, more than 400 species of birds flourish.

WILDLIFE

On the mainland and among the islands in the delta, lions, elephants, hyenas, wild dog, buffalo, hippo and crocodiles congregate with a teeming variety of antelope and other smaller animals – warthog, the mongoose, spotted genets, monkeys, bushbabies and tree squirrels.
Interspersed throughout Botswana are rich collections of historical and cultural heritage. Unique San rock art, geological wonders, and traditional art are additional attractions located in various parts of the country.
The experience of a tourist is further enhanced by the friendly, hospitable and warm-hearted people of Botswana. Botswana offers a truly unique African experience untouched by the more destructive pressures of encroaching civilisation. It presents a wonderful wilderness for all who seek to reach just that little bit further for a holiday of a lifetime.
