The Evaneos team has prepared a practical guide specifically designed to help you organise your adventure. You’ll learn that it's very easy, to visit the spectacular Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe at the beginning or end of your trip, thanks to its border location. Expect to be amazed by Botswana, whether you're exploring the delta on foot or by canoe, spotting wildlife straight out of your school books (giraffes, elephants, zebras, lions, etc) or marvelling at the extensive dunes in the Kalahari or the salt beds of Makgadikgadi.Continue reading
Other than the Okavango Delta, the country's most popular destination, Botswana has a host of other natural resources waiting to be explored. You mustn’t miss the Central Kalahari Wildlife Reserve, the world's largest nature reserve, which occupies 10% of Botswana's surface. The variety of its landscapes - sand dunes to the north, central savannah, forests in the south - and its vastness will leave you speechless. Remember to stock up on water, food and fuel before penetrating this huge wilderness where San tribes, commonly called Bushmen roam the plains. Another natural wonder exists to the east, near the border with Zimbabwe: the Makgadikgadi Pans, which are vast salt plains that form one of the largest salt deserts of the world. This is all that remains of a huge lake (the size of Switzerland!) that dried up thousands of years ago. Situated in the heart of the Kalahari, it's waterlogged during the rainy season and becomes a magnet for wildlife. Imagine grasslands and savannah as far as the eye can see, dotted with giant baobab trees and hordes of grazing wildebeest and antelope; what better way to make the African dream in your childhood books become a reality?
