Botswana

In Southern Africa, where the Kalahari meets the savanna, lies one of the greatest safari destinations in the world. Botswana is a small country defined by its vast wilderness. National Parks and protected game reserves cover nearly a quarter of the land, providing safe haven to massive African elephants and lions, rhinos and leopards. The Big 5 are undoubtedly the highlight of any game drive, but Botswana is also home to lesser-known stars: giraffes, meerkats, jackals and, when the plains flood, a stunning variety of bird life.
