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.
