Be Smart About South Africa

Camping Under the Botswana Sky

Botswana has plenty of national parks and safari camps for travelers, but the country’s primary draw is the lush Okavango Delta—a 49-million acre river delta in northern Botswana. The area is real-world eden, where cheetahs, zebras, buffalo, and rhinos roam freely. Visit during Africa’s winter, after the rains when the delta floods: The savanna’s grasses are low, while growth along the waterways attracts tons of wildlife. Adventures to try: Camping under the stars near boulder-covered Kubu Island; river boating through Chobe National Park; zooming across the Makgadikgadi salt pans on quad bikes—another spot on our 2020 travel list.
