Nine Great Botswana Experiences

Nine Great Botswana Experiences

1. DESERT ISLAND

Botswana is home to geological oddities, including an outcrop of boulders and baobabs in a sea of sand. Known as Lekhubu, or Kubu Island, it once sat in a vast lake that covered much of the Makgadkgadi salt pans. Locals watch ever the site, where they also run a campground for travelers.

2. WOVEN WARES

Traditional Botswana baskets are renowned for their tight weaving and patterns; a single basket can take weeks to complete. Some of the best, fashioned with young fronds of the mokolwane palm, can be found in the craft shops of Maun, a safari hub.

3. GONE FISHING

When the waters of the Okavango Delta recede in September, fly fishermen rejoice. Giant catfish gather in papyrus reeds, slapping the water with their tails to stun baitfish – an action that attracts feisty tiger fish that in turn offer anglers an exciting catch-and-release experience.
