Botswana is the epitome of wilderness in Southern Africa. Just over 2 million people live in an area of 580,000 square kilometres. In addition to the famous Chobe National Park with its high density of elephants, the Okavango Delta, a river delta without a sea connection, calls for a visit. This inland delta can only be reached by ship (a so-called Mokoro) or by plane and most of its space belongs to the wild animals, roaming freely around. The comfort for visitors is limited: a tent and a firepit, but rewarded with the wild romance of the delta. Besides these two famous places, the vast bushland and the Makgadikgadi salt pans should not be forgotten. Depending on the season, the pan is a desert-like landscape or an extensive, shallow lake offering many bird species a suitable habitat.
