With the hectic and pressure filled life in of today, many of us don’t find even a minute to relax.

The country of Botswana is largely a vast and nearly level sand-filled basin, with the Kalahari, a semi-arid expanse of sandy valleys, covering nearly 85% of the country. The seemingly never-ending open expanses of the savannas are brimming with wildlife, with the Okavango Delta and the Chobe River making up a year-round water supply. Almost all southern African animal and bird species are present in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve and Chobe National Park. Here you will see up close, huge numbers of elephants, antelopes, hippos, lions, crocodiles, wild dog packs and many more species you have only seen on television. The large pieces of woodland and ravines here are just teeming with wildlife.
Or you can visit the untouched plains of Makgadikgadi with the vast remains of the enormous Lake Makgadikgadi, where herds of wildebeest, zebra and other mammals migrate annually in search of permanent water and stable food supplies. You will watch in awe as vultures glide above the 2 million year-old desert land. This same arid region gets completely transformed in the rainy seasons on December with lush grasslands and overflowing streams that attract herds of migratory animals and birds. Come to Botswana and enjoy a safari in Botswana to bring out your adventurous side and find that connection with the wild!
