The guest bedrooms with sliding windows opening onto the water and the 360 degree view deck offers idyllic viewing for African wildlife as well as brilliant sunrises and sunsets.
Or…on the back of an African Elephant…standing more than 4 meters tall, weighing nearly 4 tons in muscles and bones; according to certain it would be impossible to ride. In this part of the world, the bush wakes up very early in the morning. Along the snaking Okavango River, a special procession is making space for themselves amongst trees and tall grass. A row of elephants winds through the Okavango Bush with grace and peace.
Or…on board of your canoe, the safari takes on a new dimension with a different point of view on the bush and its wildlife. On the water, take the time to look, listen and smell… a few hours will be enough to be in harmony with the nature. And in the evening while everyone recalls the strongest moments of the day sipping on their drink around the fire, the local Chef prepares a sumptuous dinner.
It has a wide variety of landscapes – vast savannah plains, arid deserts and enormous glittering water deltas. The progressing seasons influence each of these diverse areas in different ways, so any time could be the ideal time for planning to visit this destination.
You can enjoy a marvelous trip here at any time of year; it’s a country with huge numbers and a particularly wide variety of animals – more elephant than any other, lots of cats and abundant birdlife. At times the landscape can change before your eyes, as the annual Okavango “flood” advances through May and June, or as a summer thundershower causes desert flowers to spring to life. December to March draws over a hundred migrant birds to the Okavango Delta, while the dry last six months of the year see plains game and elephants gathering in phenomenal numbers on the savannah plains of Savuti, Selinda and Linyanti.
Most of the country is uninhabited and given over to wildlife and the Government wisely pursues a policy of discouraging mass tourism. This protects the environment and means that you can enjoy a wonderfully private experience from remote luxurious camps. Because many are located on private reserves a wide variety of game viewing activities are possible, from open vehicles to horseback, boats, canoes, quad bikes and fascinating walking activities.
A quirk of geology causes the great Okavango River to run inland, finishing its course in the centre of the desert creating an enormous green fertile oasis called the Okavango Delta. Swaying palm trees, oceans of rich grassland and abundant pure water create a paradise for millions of animals. You can explore the Okavango Delta from your exclusive camp with expert guides by open vehicle and on short fascinating walks. On a Botswana safari you can glide silently along breathtakingly beautiful waterways in a mokoro canoe or take a lazy boat cruise as the sun sets and flocks of birds come home.
This Delta in Botswana, surrounded by the Kalahari desert is fed by the Okavango River which starts in the mountains of Angola. Instead of flowing to the Atlantic Coast it runs inland, before becoming trapped a complex network of geological fault lines. The Okavango Delta is a miraculous living thing, replenished spectacularly between April and June following rains in Angola. Then, you can see this “flood” of fresh waters spreading visibly at a mile a day through the narrow channels and lagoons, creeping into the edges of floodplains and islands. The water is so pure that you can safely drink it.
THE CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
The Chobe National Park is one of country’s best known wildlife conservations – one of the largest on the African continent. The park is best known for its huge concentrations of elephants – some 120,000 individuals.
The Chobe National Park offers extreme contrasts and a variety of wildlife experiences. It covers a variety of vegetation types that vary from tropical habitats like the Linyanti swamp to the extreme desert like landscape of the Savuti, and the sands of the Brachestegia woodlands to the lush grasslands of the Chobe floodplains.
The wildlife is also diverse and ranges from water animals like crocodiles, hippos and a variety of fish species to the forest and dry land species like buffalo, giraffe, eland, elephants and zebra. Predators are numerous, especially in the Savuti area, including cheetah, hyena, leopard and lion. There are also over 450 species of bird in the park.
Explore the Chobe River in the dry season with its huge herds of elephants and buffalo, or brave a rainy season safari where you will bear witness to thousand of migrating zebra being chased on all sides by ravenous predators. The park offers wonderful photographic opportunities.
