Experience Botswana with Bigfoot Tours
Discover one of the most breathtaking contrasts on earth amidst this sprawling wilderness, where the arid desert of the Kalahari gives way to the miracle of the Okavango Delta. This is wild Africa, and your pioneering spirit will soar as you explore off the beaten track to experience the true African safari.
In the heart of Botswana, the floodwaters of the Okavango River spill out over the Kalahari desert sands, creating a 15 000 square km water wonderland – the largest inland river delta in the world. This fan-shaped jewel gives life to Botswana’s arid interior, with its mosaic of channels and islands forested with palms and its floodplains teeming with wildlife. Here, fish and birds, hippo and crocodiles, co-exist with herds of zebra and buffalo, elephant, lion and the wild dog. This biodiversity enables the Okavango Delta to offer remarkable land and water experiences. You can track game on safaris by open land rover, or on foot, or explore floodplains by mokoro (dugout canoe), in the company of licensed guides.
Motorised boats are used to explore the permanent river channels.Access to Botswana’s dazzling array of safari camps is easiest by light aircraft (either scheduled or private charter) and landing on remote bush strips is an integral part of the thrill.
For the adventurer, guided or self-drive safaris by four-wheel drive vehicle allow you to explore Botswana’s wildlife high-spots at leisure – from Chobe and Savute in the north, to Moremi in the Okavango Delta, the arid Makgadikgadi, Nxai Pan and Central Kalahari in the center, and finally, the Tuli Block in the south-east
