Transfrontier Park:

The area surrounding the Okavango-, Kwando- and Zambezi Rivers, has been described as the "Eden of Africa" as long ago as in the beginning of the previous century. Since then very little and very much has changed. Much has changed in this sense that the areas has been carved up into 5 different countries and has experienced the scourges of war. Little has changed in this sense that hardly any development has taken place and the border is often just a line drawn on a map - still peoples and wildlife co-exist in harmony and trek across borders at will.

This amazing area varies from the "Thirstland" of the Kalahari Desert, to the amazing Okavango Swamps and the tropical paradise around the world famous Victoria Falls. Large sections of this area has never been fully explored but more than 500 species of birds have been listed. The animal kingdom is truly remarkable with Sable antelope, Roan antelope, elephant, buffalo, hippopotamus and crocodile in abundance.

Okavango Delta is an extensive inland river delta, and is one of the most pleasurable sites on the continent for safari. Travel is typically by small boats or even dugout canoe, providing a level of tranquility that is difficult to attain in a landrover. Okavango is home to elephant, zebra, giraffe, and other large game species, but the park's true strength is in its abundance of birds, plant life, and sheer poetic beauty. Hippos and crocodiles are quite common in Okavango, as one might expect. The fishing is also excellent, particularly in the northwestern section.

Moremi Wildlife Reserve is located in the northeastern portion of the Okavango Delta, Moremi combines the attractions of the delta with more solid terrain. The result is an outstanding reserve that includes a wide variety of ecosystems and a commensurate diversity of wildlife.

Chobe National Park is Botswana's best big game park. Located conveniently to Victoria Falls, it covers an area of over 4000 sq. miles (10,000 sq. km) and is positively packed with creatures. Chobe is especially well-known for its immense elephant population (over 70,000), and it is not uncommon to encounter herds in excess of a hundred. The park's north and northwest border is marked by the Chobe River, and the river's popularity as a water source has made game viewing by boat a particular attraction.
