Although up to seventy percent of Botswana is dominated by Kalahari Desert, spectacular river systems in the north of the country form a diverse mosaic of rich habitats that support the greatest concentration of wildlife on the African continent. Top attractions such as the Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta offer some of the best and most memorable safaris in Southern Africa.

The Chobe River forms part of the Botswana border with Namibia, and it is the life-blood of the Chobe National Park with many of the eco-sensitive safari lodges tucked discreetly along the river banks shaded by gracious hardwood trees. Game viewing activities include both open vehicle drives and river boat cruises. The sheer abundance of animal life means that there is plenty of opportunity to see elephant, hippo, lion, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, red lechwe and impala. There is also always a good chance at Chobe of seeing the less commonly sighted predators, leopard, cheetah and wild dog; as well as rarer antelope such as roan, sable and puku.
