The Jewel of Africa, home to the Iconic Okavango Delta and all that it has to offer including boating, mokoro safaris, walking safaris and lodges on private islands surrounded by the waterways of this vast wilderness. But Botswana has so much more to offer, the semi desert of the Central Kalahari, the Salt pans of the Makgadikgadi, the best water based game viewing in Africa on the Chobe River and hundreds of thousands of square kilometers of private concession and untouched wilderness. It is probably the most diverse country in Africa due to the close proximity of the Okavango Delta to the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.
