Under An African Sky
There is nothing quite as majestic as an African Sky and no land so full of contrasts as that which sits below. Africa is mystical, it is wild, a photographers' dream, a dreamers' paradise
Botswana is a land of rugged, unspoilt wilderness and a plethora of ecosystems. A tour here will show you vastly different habitats, from hostile deserts to fertile floodplains. And within these numerous natural worlds live an abundance of thriving flora and fauna.
The highlight of any Botswana tour has to be the Okavango Delta, the largest such wetland of its kind. This unique feature made up of woodlands and grassland sustains a spectacular array of wildlife, which flourish further with seasonal floods. 38% of Botswana’s total land area is devoted to national parks, reserves and wildlife management areas, making this one of the finest locations in the world to enjoy Earth’s varied animal life at its best. You might spot any number of endangered species, including cheetahs, vultures and the brilliantly Pel’s fishing owl.
Everything from wild dogs to aquatic antelopes have made this country their safe haven. The vast Chobe National Park is a grassland reserve boasting the highest elephant population in the world – in fact, roughly a quarter of Africa's elephants can be found here. Travellers can also enjoy the vast Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the other-worldliness of the Makgadikgadi.
