Botswana is a place where you will find more animals than the vehicles and hence it is the best place for the travelers seeking for the tranquility. The moment you will touch down the majestic land of Makgadikgadi, you will realize that you are on a different planet where animals dominate humanity. On your way to the hotel, you will come across the widespread salt pan that covers an area bigger than some European countries. Check into your hotel for a relaxing overnight before the adventurous morning.
Biking, in all forms, is adventurous. Ride a bike over the hills and you will feel incredibly adventure. Ride a bike in the forests, and you will feel incredibly delightful. But do you know how it feels when you ride a bike over the high dunes of salt pans? Well, for this, you will need to spend an entire day in the salt pans of Makgadikgadi. Kick-start your second day in Botswana safari with an adventurous quad biking over the salt pans of Makgadikgadi. The best time of the day for quad biking is in the early evening. It is the time when the sun starts falling and its rays make the salt pans look burning red and soothing oranges - the perfect backdrop for your Botswana Safari. So, do not miss to capture them all in your Botswana Safari pictures. The salt pans beg to be photographed.
Wake up in the morning and admire the salt pans. Even after two days, they look awe-inspiring yelling loudly to be explored everytime you gaze at them. Think about the local people who live there. The harsh environmental conditions do not stop them from living leisurely at this place. So, dedicate this day to the bushman. Explore the untamed areas with a local bushman guide. Follow his tracks to explore this place. Visit their semi-nomadic houses to know how they survive in such a harsh environment. This would be a lifetime opportunity to spend a day with a small tribe who are culturally different from you. So, do not miss it.
No African safari is complete without spotting the wilds in the wilderness and the fourth day of your Botswana Safari will take you close to the wilds. Today, you will visit the Central Kalahari to spot the wildlife of Botswana. You may opt for a private vehicle to delve deeper into the forests or choose a walk in safari to encounter the wilds of the Kalahari. Hire a local bushman guide and you will explore some really interesting things about Kalahari which solo travelers never unleash. From the distance, Kalahari appears to be a dusty and rugged landscape but as you approach closer, you will find something trembling in the horizon. And there you are. You have spotted the small herd of elephants. After this, you will find a series of animals there which includes the king Lion itself.
Talking about the wilds of Kalahari, big cats, are the main attraction of course but there is much more to discover on these evocative plains. Large ostrich flocks, wildebeest, and colobus monkeys are some of the highlights that will give you moments of your life. So, do not restrict yourself to the big cats only. There’s much more to discover in Kalahari. Make sure, you explore the African wild to the fullest.
The 4-day long Botswana Safari finally comes to an end. This morning, you will return to your civilization leaving behind the wilds and their wilderness in Botswana itself. With lots of unique memories in your eyes, pack your baggage and escort for the Maun International Airport. Leave Botswana with a lifetime of memories.
