Eco tourism destination in Africa: Botswana


The different species of plants and animals found in Botswana is a perfect reason to come to this place for a nature tour. The interesting natural beauty of this country is worth taking a look. The reason as to why you should come to this country for an eco tour is mentioned below.


Botswana is bordered by Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe on all sides. The Kalahari Desert occupies almost 84% of this landlocked country. However, Botswana has been blessed by the beautiful oasis of the Okavango Delta in the north. Botswana’s lifeline, also known as ‘the jewel of the Kalahari’ stretches across 16.000 square kilometers. The Okavango Delta is known to contain 1,300 different species of plants, and about 734 different species of aquatic and land animals. Fishing in the splendid water of the Okavango is a treat you should not miss.


You may travel through the delta on foot or in a dugout canoe known as ‘mokoro’ and experience the untouched wilderness of Botswana. Fly in to any of the private luxury camps here for a range of safaris on horseback on elephants in the famous Camp Abu. The savannas of the Moremi Reserve, the dense riverine woodlands and mopane forests of Chobe and the Linyanti game reserves are well known eco tourism destinations in Botswana.

All this and more makes Eco tourism in Botswana both interesting and exciting.
