Located in southern Africa, Botswana is a landlocked country. It is home to some of the most exciting and diverse wildlife in the world. Botswana is the location of the famous Chobe National Park, one of many such parks in the country. Chobe National Park is the most diverse of all Batswana game reserves. The park has mainly three parts. They are, Savuti Marsh, Linyanti Marsh and Serondela Area. Serondela is the most visited part of Chobe and is merely 30 minutes drive from Victoria Falls. Chobe is best known for being the area with highest concentration of elephants in Africa. According to estimates, nearly 50,000 pachyderms reside in Chobe, mostly in Linyanti Marsh area. Savuti area is known for being home to prides of lions, cheetas, hyenas and herds of zebras. Another amazing place that lies just 80 kilometers south of Savuti is Moremi Game Reserve. The area is lush green and very different from Chobe. The road access is not very comfortable and one must travel in a rugged off road vehicle to reach the area. Further down the road lies the amazing Okavango Delta contains 95 percent of all surface water in the country and is fed by Okavango River. The interesting thing about Okavango is that unlike other major rivers that disappear into sea, it does not reach coast and disappears in the sands of Botswana. The area hosts a very diverse fauna and rare species like lekhwe and sitatunga can also be seen in the area.
