"Take a overnight safari on the..." Botswana Favorite Tip by KiwiDi

Botswana General: 56 reviews and 68 photos


Favorite thing: Take a overnight safari on the Okavango Delta. You are taken out in these shallow 'canoes' by friendly guides, passing groaning hippos, sleep in tents on an island (with elephant dung around you to remind you they are near!), and go on a game walk. We went swimming in the Delta - watch out for the leeches though!

Fondest memory: The game walk in the Delta. We went in a line, with a guide with a gun at the front and rear... to keep us safe from anything which might creep up on us! The guides found a wild bee nest, broke it open and we slurped up the honey from it... even though we only saw various antelope and warthogs on the walk, I wouldnt have missed this experience!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
