Okavango Delta & Moremi Game Reserve

The Okavango Delta is a vast inland river delta in the north of Botswana and is known for its grasslands that are seasonally flooded thus providing a lush habitat for wildlife. The Moremi Game Reserve is the only designated national game reserve in the Okavango Delta and is widely regarded as the most beautiful, with the most diverse habitats and animal populations in Botswana. The reserve includes about a quarter of the Okavango Delta and covers several thousand square kilometres, creating a breathtaking landscape of forests, lagoons, floodplains and islands. Wildlife viewing is possible all year round with many resident species such as lion, cheetah, leopard, hippo, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, and many more.

Lerato Adventures – The meerkats of the Makgadikgadi pans

Makgadikgadi Pans and Nxai Pans National Park

The Makgadikgadi Pans National Park and the Nxai Pan National Park are situated on the western edge of the great Makgadikgadi salt pans and are among the largest salt pans in the world with a total area of 16'000 km². After good rains in the region, the Nxai Pan is covered with lush green grass. This attracts gigantic herds of plains zebra, blue wildebeest and springbok, while other grazing animals such as steenbok, eland and hartebeest come in large numbers. The name Makgadikgadi means «vast, lifeless land». For those who prefer solitude and silence, this is a paradise, because even in the high season there are hardly any people in this surreal landscape. Go on a sleepout in the Ntwetwe Pan, visit the local meerkat population and experience the most amazing sunsets and sunrises.

Savuti

The Savuti is a region within the heart of the Chobe National Park that is secretly located away from the peak season crowds at the Chobe riverfront. The area is renowned for its large population of bull elephants and its predators, especially the resident lion and spotted hyena populations. Savuti is famous for its mysterious and fascinating channel. It runs a distance of 100 km from the Chobe River, through a gap in the sand ridge, to the Mababe Depression. Falling only approximately 18 meters, this channel brings water from the Chobe to Mababe, creating a small marsh where it enters the Depression, although the Savuti Marsh has been dry for the past 18 years.

Central Kalahari Game REserve

Nothing can prepare visitors for the sheer size and immensity of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR), nor for its wild, mysterious beauty. The immediate image of infinite space gives the impression of having the entire reserve to oneself. The CKGR is the largest, most remote reserve in southern Africa and the second largest wildlife reserve in the world, covering an area of 52'800 km². During and shortly after good summer rains, the flat grasslands of the northern foothills of the reserve are teeming with game, which congregate around the best grazing grounds. These include large herds of springbok and gemsbok, as well as wildebeest, hartebeest, eland and giraffe.

Chobe National Park

Chobe National Park is a true wildlife paradise. One glance at the variety of wildlife and the lush vegetation is enough to enchant you forever. The park is very lush due to the many waterways, as the Chobe River flows through the park and attracts many animals and birds in the dry season. It is worth taking a boat trip on the Chobe and game drives along the river, as the photo opportunities and sightings are unique.
