In this article read about 6 BEST THINGS TO DO IN BOTSWANA. Botswana is without a doubt one of the most spectacular wilderness areas on the planet. The Kalahari Desert and lunar-like pans at Nxai and Makgadikgadi can be found in the south and east. The dazzling water worlds of the Okavango Delta and Chobe River ecosystem, on the other hand, can be found in the north and west.

This variety of terrain lends itself to a wide range of activities suitable for almost anyone with an interest in the outdoors. Whether it’s your first or tenth visit to Botswana, there’s always something new to discover in one of Africa’s friendliest countries.

Choosing what to see and do in Botswana is difficult because safari is almost everywhere you look in this country! But, since 1998, we’ve been travelling the length and breadth of Africa, customising Botswana safaris for thousands of visitors.

To help you decide, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite 6 BEST THINGS TO DO IN BOTSWANA

1. Horseback Game Viewing

Horseback riding safaris are among the most exclusive Botswana activities and are only recommended for experienced riders. Your horse will have become accustomed to game, and you will be able to enjoy cantering through pristine floodplains in search of sitatunga, lechwe, and the horse’s equine cousin, zebra. Many lodges offer gentle outrides for less experienced riders, so don’t be discouraged.

Ideally suited for…

  • Riders of all skill levels
  • Travelers who are active and daring

2.Delta Hot-Air Balloon Safari

The beauty of ballooning is that you get a true sense of the Okavango Delta’s size. It’s one thing to fly over it in a small plane; it’s quite another to float peacefully above its ox-bow lakes, counting the hippos, elephants, and buffaloes below. It’s a magical experience and one of the best things to do on your honeymoon in Botswana.

If you want to go somewhere right now, remember that the world is changing . So travel the world, book a Botswana trip or to any other country like  South Africa  . Live your best life today.

3. ATV Rides on Pans

ATVs are known as quad bikes in Africa, and the Nxai Pan and Makgadikgadi Pans National Parks are ideal for them: flat, smooth areas where you can cover long distances at high speeds to get to places of interest. Wrap up against the sun, start your engine, and explore Botswana’s never-ending salt flats.

Ideally suited for…

  • Travelers who are daring
  • Families

4. Sleeping Under the Stars

Botswana’s night sky has its own show: a dizzying array of stars. Because there is no light or air pollution, the magnificent Milky Way shines brightly here. To be honest, anywhere outside of towns like Maun and Kasane should provide excellent stargazing opportunities. But consider the Kalahari for one very good reason: the skies will almost certainly be cloudless!

Spending the night in one of Botswana’s incredible star-beds is one of our favourite things to do. Drift off to the sounds of chortling hippos, giggling hyenas, and distant lion calls, with only a mosquito net between you and an infinite blanket of stars. A’star-bed’ is exactly what the name implies: a comfortable, open-air bed in the middle of nowhere. Some are simply built in candlelit riverbeds, while others are cradled in rustic ‘bird’s nest’ style platforms above the treeline. Some are even featured in lavish tree houses with en suite bathrooms and running water. For an unforgettable night in the wild, visit Botswana’s private reserves, or the Makgadikgadi Pans for out-of-this-world stargazing. If you’re planning a honeymoon safari in Botswana, this should be on your list of things to do.

5. Chobe River Sunset Cruises

The Chobe River, located in Chobe National Park to the north, is frequently where safaris to Botswana end. And what a grand finale! A sunset cruise is a traditional way to end the day, as you can see fish eagles, crocs, hippos, a plethora of birds, and even water monitors from the boat. The unique angles for wildlife photography that boat-based game viewing provides is an added benefit. The crossing of elephant families from one bank to another, however, is always a show stopper.

The leader crosses patiently, feeling for submerged rocks and logs, testing the depth of the water, and essentially choosing the safest route. The babies, as usual, are in the centre of the group, paddling furiously with their tiny legs when the water becomes too deep. It’s a moving experience and one of the best things to do in Botswana.

  • First-time safari visitors

6. Compare Yourself to a Baobab

The baobab is known as “the tree God made in anger” in Tswana folklore. He apparently became frustrated with the baobab and tossed it out of heaven, where it fell to Earth, landing clumsily with its “roots” in the air, earning it the nickname “the upside-down tree.” The massive trunks of baobabs hold a lot of moisture, and elephants regularly mangle the bark with their tusks to get to it. Despite this, the baobabs survive the pachyderms’ thirst.

There are many spectacular baobabs in the Makgadikgadi area, but the ones worth seeing the most are Baines’ Baobabs in Nxai Pan National Park. The paintings of Thomas Baines, a British landscape artist commissioned by the Royal Geographic Society in 1862, immortalised this stunted cluster of seven baobabs, also known as the Sleeping Sisters.
