A Wealth of Wildlife

The Big 5 arguably inspire the most awe amongst Africa's myriad wildlife, but there is much more to encounter. Meet thousands of Cape fur seals at Cape Cross, marvel at choruses of birds across the continent, spy the hippos and crocodiles of Africa's waterways, get up close with the formidable great white shark, walk side by side with the world's fastest land mammal, and wonder at this corner of the world that has been blessed in abundance.

Birding

Southern Africa is truly a birder's paradise. The Kruger National Park is home to around 500 bird species, including migrants and vagrants. South Africa totals more than 829 species - the most in Southern Africa - while Zambia comes in second at 770. Botswana, surprisingly, hosts the least, but its unique landscapes like the Makgadikgadi Pans and the Okavango Delta draw a magical proliferation of waterbirds in the wet season.

Water-based Game Viewing

Botswana is certainly most notable for its many opportunities for water-based game viewing In fact, select camps in the Okavango Delta offer water-based safaris exclusively in traditional mokoro canoes (or fiberglass replicas). Gliding quietly along the emerald waterways of the delta is simultaneously tranquil and thrilling. Motorized water-based game viewing is popular in the Okavango Delta and on the mighty Chobe River in Botswana's north.
