African nature untouched and protected. Botswana is a paradise on earth with untouched nature as far as the eye reaches. One of the highlights is the Okavango-Delta, where the river Okavango reaches it’s final destination inland, and with 18,000m2 it’s the largest inland delta on earth surrounded by dry land. Ideal way to discover the delta is via taking the Mokoro, the local dugout canoe on a river safari and observe the animals, such as hippos in natural pools surrounded by reed.
Another hightlight is Chobe National Part, which boasts the largest elephant population in Africa, large buffalo herds and rich bird life. Further highlights are the Kalahari desert at the border to South Africa and Namibia, as well as the largest salt pan on earth, the Makgakikgadi Pan. For the protection of Botswana’s unspoiled nature, the theme when visiting is „Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.“
