About this book

A safari in northern Botswana takes the traveller to a wilderness populated almost exclusively by wildlife. Here are the predators and their prey; here, too, are the elephants, the hippos and the astonishing birdlife of the Okavango Delta. This third edition of Bradt's "Botswana Safari Guide: Okavango, Kalahari, Chobe Desert" provides unrivalled coverage of the region's wildlife, environment and history, as well as a thorough evaluation of when, where and how to go.

Accommodation options for all budgets – from lodges to camps and hotels – are fully revised and updated. Chris McIntyre is a director of a UK travel company specialising in southern Africa. He travels regularly throughout the region, including extended trips to Botswana.

- The only guide to focus on the most popular tourist areas of Botswana
- Detailed maps including a full-colour spread showing the whole of the Okavango Delta
- Improved coverage of the Panhandle, west of the Okavango Delta
- Concise section on Livingstone and the Victoria Falls, geared to those visiting as an add-on to a Botswana safari
