Wildlife by Destination
Situated in the centre of southern Africa and more than 600 kilometres (373 miles) from the nearest ocean, Botswana is surrounded by Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe as its immediate neighbours. With the exception of the eastern part of the country, where the great majority of the Batswana people live and where the summer rainfall is slightly higher, the majority of Botswana is desert.
In so many ways the iconic African country, rich in lore and legend, Kenya sits literally astride the equator and its vibrant array of cultures and ethnicities is echoed in a wide diversity of natural habitats and the different species they support.View Wildlife →
Namibia is a country of astonishing contrasts, home to the oldest desert on the planet, the white saltpans of Etosha National Park, the uninhabited beaches of the Skeleton Coast and the vast wilderness of Kaokoveld. These unique landscapes are not only home to an astonishing diversity of wildlife, but also to endemic and special wildlife that are found nowhere else on Earth. There are approximately 4 000 species of plants, over 650 bird species and 80 large mammal species.View Wildlife →
Situated at the southern edge of the African continent, South Africa is bounded by oceans on three sides, with an interior that has a wonderful assortment of habitats, from lush tropical forests to arid deserts, from mountains to the open savannah of the bushveld.View Wildlife →
Zambia is named after the mighty Zambezi River, which rises in the country’s north-west corner, flows into Angola before re-entering Zambia at the Cholwezi Rapids, and thereafter forms the southern border of the country with neighbouring Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. The Zambezi and its valleys are one defining aspect of this country; another is the southern end of the great African Rift system that cuts through the eastern and southern parts via several deep rifts along the course of the Luangwa River.View Wildlife →
Zimbabwe lies between the great Zambezi River, its northern frontier, and the languid Limpopo River in the south. In between, the country has a variety of habitats, and consequently wildlife in diversity and numbers. The mighty Zambezi hosts the iconic Victoria Falls along its course as well as the remote Mana Pools National Park downriver. In Hwange National Park, the easternmost tongues of the Kalahari mix with teak forests, so that desert-adapted animals share the same habitat with woodland species. Zimbabwe is blessed with rich diversity: the country supports 672 bird, 196 mammal, 156 reptile and 72 amphibian species.View Wildlife →
