However, it’s not too bad if you have a decent 4Wheel Drive vehicle. Why not check out some of South Africa 4×4’s

Botswana undoubtedly has some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa. The variety of habitats results in anextraordinaryvariation in wildlife – both fauna and flora. All in all, it’s a great place to take a 4×4 to. Below we list some of the top destinations you can visit while roughing in in Botswana.
The Chobe National Park
Chobe is famous for its elephants – and herds of 200 are common, especially in the dry season. There are three main areas of the park – Savuti is famous for its predators, Linyanti is picturesque and tranquil, and the riverfront boasts an incredible variety of game, birdlife and aquatic life.
The Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is certainly one of the most famous destinations in Botswana. This is a natural wonder, spreading water and marshlands thousands of square kilometers into the desert. Moremi Game Reserve to the eastern side of the delta is one of Southern Africa’s most inviting wildlife areas.
The Central Kalahari
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the world’s second largest. The north of the reserve features fossil river valleys, with large populations of desert species such as springbok and gemsbok. Prepare yourself for some of the most amazing night skies the world has to offer.
Makgadikgadi includes a massive expanse of salt flats, covering thousands of square kilometers. North of this is Nxai Pan National Park – a grassy pan that attractshuge herds of animals in the wet season. Plan on staying for a while – these national parks have much to see and you will want to see it all.
