Botswana extends from Namibia in the west through the Kalahari Desert to the Makgadikgadi Pans, the wetlands of the Okavango Delta, Linyanti / Savuti and Chobe, in the northeast.
Botswana is host to one of the few remaining animal migrations on earth and features the Okavango Delta at the southern end of the Great Rift Valley. The Delta is unique and is created by the Okavango River as it flows into the arid region of the Kalahari Desert. It forms an alluvial shaped oasis over an area of 450 000 hectares of desert terrain. The habitat is of its own making forged through the millennia, shifting and changing, and drawing to it birds and wildlife in abundance.
