I WANT TO EXPERIENCE MAXIMUM WILDLIFE IN SOUTHERN AFRICA, WHAT'S THE BEST COUNTRY?
???according to Jenny Gray, Peregrine Adventures' regional product manager for Africa and the Middle East.
Botswana. For the abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities and because Botswana truly values conservation through tourism. The Okavango Delta, which recently became the 1000th site to be added to the UNESCO World Heritage list, has long been known as "Africa's last Eden". Chobe National Park has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa, particularly elephants. Botswana is also a twitcher's paradise, with as many 580 bird species. You can choose from 4x4 game drives, walking safaris with expert local guides, sleeping on a houseboat, a glide up the delta in a traditional mokoro dugout canoe, a sunset boat safari with a g&t in hand or a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta. There's so much to see, but overall it's the sense of wilderness you get when you're among these pristine, functioning ecosystems that has the most impact on travellers.
