Desert and Delta
One of Africa's greatest safari countries, Botswana's appeals are those
of old Africa: free-ranging animals that still follow their natural patterns;
people who make peace with nature rather than try to conquer it; and settings
unlike anything else in the world. The remoteness that once deterred travelers
from exploring Botswana is now a large part of its allure, in addition
to the country's excellent accommodations, tourist facilities and services.
Botswana is an African success story. A long-neglected British protectorate,
Botswana achieved its independence in 1966 and immediately thereafter,
in a mad stroke of luck, discovered three of the world's richest diamond
mines. Today the country enjoys a relatively enlightened government, and
its health, educational and economic standards are rivalled on the African
continent only by South Africa's.
the narrow eastern corridor where the majority of population is concentrated,
Botswana is a largely roadless wilderness of savannas, deserts, wetlands
and salt pans. To ensure the country's natural assets are preserved, Botswana's
government has embraced a policy of courting primarily high-cost, low-impact
tourism, although recent years have seen options for independent, budget-minded
travellers grow. Skinflints and softies beware: This remains a destination
for the intrepid, well-heeled traveller.
Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve is a succession of islands and
lagoons, open grasslands and flooded plains in a mosaic of land and water.
Palms and towering trees abound, throwing their shade over crystal pools,
forest glades and grassy knolls. Here is a part of Africa relatively un
spoilt by modern man, worthy of being a World Heritage Site".
is well known for its lush forests and huge herds of elephants. Guests
can enjoy sunset cruises along the Chobe river - a unique way to relax
and enjoy game viewing.
Savuti lies within Chobe National Park and is famous for its lions, hyena
and large herds of game
great plains of Makgadikgadi Pans are scenically stunning. At certain
times of the year, enormous flocks of flamingos, pelicans and innumerable
ducks congregate in a myriad of colors on the lakes.
flights over the 13 000km2 region is an awesome sight. For some, the experience
of gliding through the swamps in a mokoro (a special dug out canoe) provides
the thrill of a lifetime. The most mystical call of Africa is the cry
of the fish eagle, a call that will haunt your soul, and bring you back
to Africa …….
Falls info :
some month such as October / Nov , the Zambezi River is very low and as
the channel on the Zimbabwean side is deeper than that on the Zambian
side, the falls may actually not have any water flowing over them at all
from the Zambian side while the falls from the Zimbabwean side always
have water! Once again this is very limited to very short periods of times
, depending on weather and other factors which no one can control. Of
course one can stay on the Zambian side as the program states and do a
day trip across to Zimbabwe, this will require a dual entry visa for Zambia
and single entry visa for Zimbabwe.
Fever Vaccination - Zambia :
Yellow Fever Vaccinations are required for entry into Zambia and re-entry
in South Africa.
