Your options are endless!

Beyond The Victoria Falls and the towns of Livingstone and Victoria Falls lies a vast wilderness of untamed beauty – Africa’s Eden. Africa’s Eden includes conservancies in the four countries, encompassing several National Parks, other protected areas and wildlife estates. This continuous landscape, unified under KAZA, covers a staggering 520,000 sq. km and is home to thousands of different plants, hundreds of species of animals, fish, and birds, and comprises numerous migration routes. These combined conservancies offer a wide variety of options for wilderness, safari, conservation and adventure activities for visitors to Africa’s Eden.
Central Kalahari Game Reserve
Covering 52800 sq. km (20400 sq. mi), the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is larger than the Netherlands and the second-largest game reserve in the world. The semi-arid shrub savanna is interspersed with huge grasslands that nourish large herds of herbivores, attracting many predators. The area is well known for black-maned lions and cheetah sightings. Due to its remote location and massive size, visitors are awed by the sense of pure wilderness. For this reason, too, there are only a few private lodges and campsites, so one is likely to encounter few people at all. Aside from game viewing, it is also possible to have an ethical, cultural experience with the region’s indigenous San people.
Chobe National Park
This utopia, located in northeastern Botswana, is focused around the Chobe River and its extensive floodplains, which draws abundant game and birdlife all year round and especially during the dry season. Chobe National Park contains some of the most significant concentrations of elephants on the African continent. Bordered to the north by the Chobe River, the park includes floodplains, swamps and woodlands.
Kasane Botswana is situated near the so-called ‘Four Corners’, where Botswana shares borders with Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Aside from serving as the Chobe District capital, it is also an important tourism hub, given its proximity to the border and numerous tourist attractions in the greater region, including Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls. For a small town, the accommodation offers everything from campsites to five-star lodgings. Kasane has grown to service the overland safari industry, with most necessities available. Kasane can be reached by air via Kasane International Airport, along with border control facilities for the above-mentioned countries.
Kwando, Selinda and Linyanti Concessions
Kwando, Selinda and Linyanti Concessions are areas in which private companies have been granted the right to conduct safari operations without some of the restrictions found in the national parks and game reserves. Vast and unspoilt, visits to these areas promise luxury accommodation at a premium rate in spectacular settings. All of the lodges offer game drives (including night drives), walking safaris, and boat-based activities. Each of the areas boast excellent wildlife, with the zebra migration, the large elephant populations and good predator sightings among the many attractions. Birdlife is prolific in each of Kwando, Selinda and Linyanti Concessions, with species diversity peaking from November to April as migrant species arrive from far afield.
Makgadikgadi Pans & Nxai Pan National Park
Visit Makgadikgadi Pans and Nxai Pans National Park, and check off a visit to the largest individual salt pan on Planet Earth. This National Park provides unique wilderness experiences. Vast horizons frame the stark landscape for most of the year providing opportunities for unparalleled stargazing. The famous inquisitive meerkats peek out from their colony holes or view the renowned flamingo migration during the short wet season when the pan fills.
Maun is a rural town on the Thamalakane River in northern Botswana where it is not unusual to see local tribesman walking their cattle, donkeys and goats through the town centre. It is Botswana's primary tourist hub as the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Maun has good accommodation options, and the ambience is usually fun as the town gets a good mix of bush pilots, tourists, campers, volunteers, and luxury-safari-enthusiasts. Most travellers spend their time in the camps and lodges within the Okavango Delta, only using Maun as a stopover for a day or two.
Moremi Game Reserve
Straddling the eastern and central portions of the Okavango region of Botswana, Moremi Game Reserve is the oldest protected area of the Okavango Delta. It includes the Moremi Tongue and Chief's Island areas, widely recognised as some of Africa's most spectacular and scenically beautiful wilderness areas. A visit to this portion of Africa's Eden will undoubtedly produce an unparalleled safari experience, memories of which are guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Okavango Delta
One of Africa's wildlife meccas, the Okavango Delta is a 15000 sq. km (5792 sq. mi) inland delta fed by seasonal floodwaters that inundate the area, peaking from June to August. The abundance of water and food attracts all manner of wildlife in a concentrated area – and in their wake, tourists lucky enough to witness this unspoilt wilderness. Due to its size and low-volume approach to tourism, the Okavango Delta never feels crowded and offers a taste of true nature. Tourists visiting this World Heritage Site have a large selection of accommodations and service providers, and the water-based safari activities are a standout attraction.
Tuli Area
Sometimes referred to as the Tuli Block, this region of eastern Botswana is wedged at the confluence of the borders of South Africa to the southeast and Zimbabwe to the northeast. Covering 720 sq. km (278 mi), Tuli is made up of private land jointly managed for both tourism and conservation – and forms part of the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area. Unlike most of Botswana’s wildlife areas which are generally flat, Tuli stands out for its hilly scenery, which hides some impressive archaeological remnants. The Tuli Area offers a good selection of lodges and wildlife-based activities. The area is renowned for its elephant population, towering baobab trees and excellent predator sightings.
