Botswana is a country in southern Africa that is very unique. It is considered one of the least populated countries in the world. Only about 2 million people live in Botswana, so the animals literally outnumber the humans! The landscape is mostly desert, however there are a few areas that can sustain the beautiful animals that people usually go to Africa to see. One of these special places is the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve.
The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve borders the Chobe River, and is a vast area that has grasslands, woodlands, and even islands. A majority of people who visit the reserve are hoping to see some of the animals that occupy this diverse area. Some of the animals you might see are elephants, zebras, impalas, giraffes and antelopes. One particularly beautiful site is when thousands of zebras gather to head south for the summertime. It has to be seen to be believed. Daytime in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is full of activity, and so is the nighttime. Lions, cheetahs, wild dogs and leopards relax during the day, but are very active at night. Bird lovers will also have a great time in the reserve as there are hundreds of species of birds. Observing these animals in their natural habitats is something every world traveler must experience.
If you are searching for an all-natural adventure, you will definitely want to visit the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve. The plants, animals and landscapes of Botswana will come alive and leave you with some of the most exciting memories ever.
