Botswana

  • We had an amazing time and really enjoyed it. Ten days was not long enough and we would love to be able to travel with Letaka Safaris again. Pat was excellent. It was good to have a local guide who knew all about the area and wildlife. His in-depth knowledge of the fauna and flora was amazing. Michelle at Safari Consultants was very efficient and always responded to our e-mails straightaway. She sent us a lot of useful information.

Regions

By way of introduction to the regions of Botswana, we first want to dwell on the Kalahari Basin, which contrary to being a specific area, is in fact the largest continuous stretch of sand in the world, from South Africa in the south to the Congo in the north. Thus it can be said that all the regions specified below fall within this greater ecosystem, and could all be called ‘the Kalahari’! However, the influence of various great waterways has allowed many of these regions to develop so that they no longer offer typical Kalahari conditions.
