Botswana Mobile Safari & Photo Tour

Botswana is a land locked country, surrounded by higher altitudes and home to the Okavango, the largest river delta on earth. The delta is formed by the seasonal flooding of the Okavango River, which flows from the Angolian highlands and drains itself into the vast Kalahari Desert, creating a rich tapestry of lagoons, lakes and channels which attract some of the world’s highest concentration of wildlife, including some of the most enigmatic mammals of Africa and hundreds of bird species in one of the most dramatic landscapes in the continent.

Our Botswana wildlife safaris starts at Maun in the southern part of the country and takes us through prime wildlife areas in Moremi Game Reserve, Khwai Concession Area in the Okavango delta & Savuti in eastern Chobe National Park as we travel through some of the most pristine habitats in Africa.

The delta fringes and flood plains attract huge numbers of grazers, which in turn attracts large numbers of predators. It’s not uncommon to encounter Lions, Hyenas, Leopards and Wild Dog on a daily basis. Other large mammals include Elephant, Cape buffalo, Southern Giraffe, Hippopotamus, Zebra, Kudu, Waterbuck, Impala, the indigenous Red Lechwe, Tsessebe and Blue Wildebeest, besides primates like the Baboon and Vervet Monkey. Other predators include Cheetah, Spotted Hyena, Black-backed Jackal and African Wild Cat. Nocturnal species such as Porcupine, Civet, Genet, Honey badger and Bat Eared Fox are some of the species that maybe seen on night drives where permitted.
