Botswana National Parks
Chobe National Park
Lying in the north of the country, the Chobe river borders with Namibia. The
park has the most varied wildlife of all of Botswana's parks with one of the
highest populations of Elephant to be found here. The wide Chobe River is the
lifeblood of the area and feeds adjacent flood plains much.
Mokolodi Nature Reserve
For those who want to get close to African wildlife without going on safari,
this park is ideal. It's conveniently close to Gaborone but, once you enter
the park, you really are in the bush. Whether you stay for a day or a week,
Mokolodi offers a magical experience. Activities include rhino tracking (yes,
you can get really close on foot), giraffe tracking, walking with the elephants,
game drives, and horse trekking. For many visitors, though, the highlight is
the cheetah experience. Once you've been licked by a cheetah the memory will
stay with you for ever.
Moremi Game Reserve
Eastern corner of the Okavango Delta in the north west of Botswana. Described
as one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Africa. It combines mopane
woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. It is the great diversity
of plant and animal life that makes Moremi so well known. It is one of the few
places where you may be lucky to see a Red Lechwe antelope, but there are also
many other animals such as elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, lions, leopards,
cheetahs, wild dogs, hyenas and rhinos. The Moremi Game Reserve is also renowned
for its birdlife - click to view recommended Tours and Safaris.
Okavango Delta & Moremi Game Reserve

seen from safari vans and boats. The delta waters meet the sands of the Kalahari
desert making the whole area very beautiful and scenic which is why it is referred
to as the 'Jewel of the Kalahari'.
Central Kalahari Game Reserve

and springbok and also has a number of wildebeest, giraffe, lion, cheetah, leopard,
