In Botswana, you’ll find the largest inland delta in the world. The Okavango Delta attracts many different species, including these lechwe antelopes. They are reliant on water, which is why they flock to the Delta’s floodplains.
When you’re not exploring Botswana on water-based safaris, your classic game drives will be just as action-packed. The Okavango Delta is home to the Big 5, which includes the majestic lion, and seeing these big cats will undoubtedly be one of your most memorable sightings.
A mokoro is a traditional dugout canoe, best compared to Venice’s gondolas. However, the difference is that you won’t be staring at buildings!

In Chobe National Park, you’ll find herds of elephants as far as the eye can see! This pocket of Botswana is world famous for having the highest concentration of our beloved gentle giants in the world. And if you want to see them swim, you should visit the Chobe River!
