Going to The Okavango Delta

There are numerous motives why a Botswana safari is my favourite type and it begins with the Okavango Delta becoming a single of the most remarkable landscapes to view wildlife.

If you are hoping to see meerkats in Botswana, be confident to venture elsewhere to the likes of the kalahari desert (I created that error years ago and have been itching to get back to Botswana ever given that!)
