NATURE RESERVE IN OKAVANGO DELTA
Moremi Game Reserve
The largest island in the Okavango Delta, Chief’s Island (70km long and 15km wide) is so named because it was once the sole hunting preserve of the local chief.
ISLAND IN MOREMI GAME RESERVE
The grassy savannah of this 100-sq-km island, a long extension of the Moremi Tongue, contrasts sharply with the surrounding landscapes and provides some excellent dry-season wildlife watching – cheetah, lion and buffaloes
LAKE IN MOREMI GAME RESERVE
With one of Africa’s largest heronries, Xakanaxa Lediba (Xakanaxa Lagoon) is renowned as a birdwatchers’ paradise. In addition to herons, potential sightings here include storks, egrets and ibises.
One of the prettiest corners of Moremi, the area known as Paradise Pools is as lovely as the name suggests.
Dombo Hippo Pools
The drive between North Gate (including Khwai) and Xakanaxa Lediba follows one of Botswana’s more scenic tracks, the route changes with the years, depending on flood levels.
MUSEUM IN MAUN
This neglected museum is in a historic building built by the British military in 1939 and used during WWII as a surveillance post keeping tabs on German Namibia.
Kasane lies in a riverine woodland at the meeting point of four countries – Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe – and the confluence of two major rivers, the Chobe and the Zambezi. It’s also the northern gateway to Chobe National Park, and the jumping-off point for excursions to Victoria Falls.
Savuti’s flat, wildlife-packed expanses and rocky outcrops, awash with distinctly African colours and vistas, make it one of the most rewarding safari destinations on the continent.
The Nogatsaa-Tchinga area supports herds of buffaloes and elephants as well as reedbucks, gemsboks, roans and the rare oribi antelope. Located east of Linyanti and south of Chobe Riverfront, it sees far fewer tourists than the latter (and Savuti), but it also lacks the overwhelming numbers of animals found in those safari hot spots.
Hard up against the border with Namibia, the Linyanti River spreads into a 900-sq-km flooded plain that attracts stunning concentrations of wildlife during the dry season.
one of the top destinations to visit in the world
