Botswana's Unspoiled Treasures

by Sara Smith I am a Traveller

 Africa still remains a mystery for those who are yet apprehensive about it’s worthiness to stand at par with other trending holiday destinations. There is much that lies unexplored and much that is beautiful but not famous. Before you plan your vacation to any other country flooded with tourists round the year, wouldn't it be a judicious decision to fly from London to Africa and search for some unspoiled treasures of nature. One such paradise of nature from African continent is Botswana. People come here for peace and solitude, to spend some quality time with family and loved ones amid savage nature and wildlife. Botswana is also favourite destination for honeymoon that gives you an experience worth remembering the whole life.

The size of Botswana is though as big as countries like Thailand, Spain and France but is less populated with approximately 2,000,000 people living there. Major part of the country, around 70% is covered by the Kalahari Desert. Situated in South Africa it remains snuggled between Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Slowly and steadily it is being noticed by the western world and all credit goes to it's scenic natural beauty and cultural grandeur.

One of the major highlights of Botswana is the unique Okavango-Delta, where the Okavango River flows into a drench that is within the Kalahari desert. With a huge area of 15,000 – 22,000 km2, this delta is bigger than the world's biggest inland delta. The best way to experience Botswana is by a Mokoro, which is a local dugout canoe that moves smoothly amid the beautiful surroundings. The rangers over there will show you the exact environment of hyenas, lions and leopards. Join a river safari to get close to animals like elephants bathing in the water or leopards, hyenas and lions resting or playing in the ponds. A visit to the Chobe National Park is a must when in Botswana, it being the abode to Africa's largest elephant population, a huge buffalo group and a variety of colourful birds. Another attraction of the place is Makgadikgadi Pan, which is one of the largest salt pans in the world. The untouched savageness of the captivating diversity and the endless tranquillity of starry sky and land expansions, contribute in creating unforgettable moments.

The untamed and unspoiled nature of Botswana, with a motive to be preserved and protected comes with a theme of “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints”.  Enjoy staying in special tent camps and bask upon an awesome safari to experience wildlife from all perspectives. The best time to visit Botswana is From May to September, which is called the dry season and also during the green season from December to April. Okavango is inundated with tourists from June till October and wildlife viewing is available round the year, so without any further delay, plan your trip soon to this wonderland. Get your tickets booked with good flight travel agents and fly Africa as someone has rightly said that the real essence of life is adventure so keep going.
