BOTSWANA: WHERE PEOPLE ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN – AND ANIMALS ROAM WILD AND FREE
With an undersized human population and more than 40% of the country dedicated to nature and wildlife conservation, you could travel Botswana for miles without seeing another person. What you will see instead, is an abundance of wild animals. This country is considered to be one of the world’s last true wilderness areas and Africa Revealed has access to camps in all the right locations.
Africa’s Elephant Sanctuary
Sanctuary to the largest elephant population on the African continent, it is in Botswana that you will understand the words of Bill Murray: ‘They say an elephant never forgets. What they don’t tell you; is that you never forget an elephant.’ You have not lived until you’ve had a close encounter with these majestic creatures. With Botswana’s elephant population of around 140 000 you are sure to have many magical moments with these gentle giants.
Witness one of Africa’s last remaining naturally intact and unique habitats
A renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site, the great Okavango Delta is not only the largest inland delta, but it is also an unparalleled wilderness sanctuary. These are the top reasons why:
- A unique natural phenomenon as the major Okavango river does not flow into a sea or ocean but rather fans out and floods the desert.
- Animals come from far and wide to make the most of the bounty that comes with the seasonal flooding.
- Crystal clear waters, palm trees and a large concentration of wildlife makes the Okavango a truly unique and spectacular safari destination.
