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.

Media reviews

'There can be few people better qualified to write a travel guide on Botswana than Chris McIntyre...Like all good guide books, this is packed with all kinds of practical and wide-ranging advice - from driving near elephants to maps with GPS references and how to shake hands Botswana style...What's more, even the nuts-and-bolts sections are well-written and make enjoyable reading. In particular, the region-by-region chapters on the country's reserves, camps and lodges had me longing to jump on the first plane to Maun. Each area is painstakingly described - clearly the result of meticulous first-hand research...If you can take only one book to Botswana, make sure it's this one.'
- BBC Wildlife

'Gives a complete coverage of this unique ecosystem and its bird and plant life.'
- NHBS (Natural History Book Services)

'The definitive guide for wildlife enthusiasts.' Wanderlust '...excellent companion for your Okavango trip.'
