Botswana is very developed in terms of facilities and wildlife viewing. They are very ecologically conservationists and have taken great care of their parks.

In my oppinion Botswana offers some of the best wildlife viewing and birdwatching in Africa, combined with friendly people, knowledgable guides and comfortable accommodation in various price classes.

Although we found Botswana beautiful, it did not have the typical majestic beauty many people assume is present throught Africa. There were no giant mountains or lakes, just simple unadulterated lovely wilderness.

Botswana has some very beautiful areas, such as Makgadikgadi, Chobe, Moremi and Okavango Delta, with loads of wildlife. However, it's close proximity to South Africa makes it a busy place. Many campsites in National Parks need to be booked more than a year in advance. This pre-arrangement doesn't give the country a real 'bush-vibe', although some gems, such as Makgadikgadi still feel very much like the real deal.

If you like safaris, Botswana is the place for you. Kilometers and kilometers of untouched land, where the big animals roam free. Moreover, Botswana has a good economical and political status, so it is a very safe destination for your safari.

The highlight for wildlife in southern Africa
Overall rating

Botswana has an amazing amount of wildlife. From the Okovango Delta to the Chobe River, and the savannahs in between, I have never been so astounded! There were so many amazing experiences on the trip - from being charged by an elephant to seeing lions on my birthday, it really was a trip of a lifetime, we even had a juvenile leopard come into our camp one night! The country is safe, the people are friendly, and the weather was perfect - cool nights and warm days. Bring your camera because you can't take a bad photo there! I loved the trip and can't wait to get back over!
