Botswana has a good wildlife population and you can expect to see most of the big animals on a safari here. Sightings of lions are frequent; in particular an encounter with the black-maned lions of the Kalahari is unforgettable. Elephants, hippo, buffalo, zebra and giraffe are all abundant.
Botswana is home to a plethora 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.
