Putting it bluntly, Botswana wildlife delivers.
Botswana is home to an array of wildlife in some extreme wildlife habitats, from the arid salt pans of the south to the wetland ‘swamps’ of the Okavango Delta and Moremi Reserve and the luscious flood plains of the Chobe River. These areas provide unique ecosystems in which some dramatic wildlife sightings can be experienced.
There may be the odd naysayer out there that complains about Botswana’s high safari prices, however, those prices pretty much guarantee exclusivity, which in turn ensures that the sheer quality of wildlife sightings you encounter is better than almost anywhere else on the African continent. Yes, it may not have the drama of the free-flowing migrating herds of East Africa, but the quality and quantity of what you can see in Botswana is second to none.
Exclusive concessions mean a limited number of people in the concessions to start with, fewer people in the concession mean fewer people on each wildlife sighting, fewer people on a wildlife sighting results in an all-round higher quality wildlife experience. At the end of the day, let’s face it, the quality of the wildlife viewing is exactly what we judge a safari experience on.
