There are 22 types of antelope in Botswana, each slightly different in some way. In Botswana, the red lechwe is synonymous with the Okavango Delta, and if you visit the areas, you’ll see plenty of them grazing on the seasonal floodplains as they enjoy the short grass.
They say there’s strength in numbers, which is perhaps why they tend to congregate in their hundreds. Lions, wild dogs and hyenas are a major threat – they love to pounce on them and make them their prey.
So many birds, so little time – they deserve an article of their very own. One of the most spectacular kinds found in Botswana is the African fish eagle, known for their distinctive cry and the way they just swoop in on fish swimming in the water with their outstretched talons.
Perhaps the most unforgettable birds are the lilac breasted rollers. Their gorgeous rainbow colours will be committed to memory forever, and the photographs will be truly stunning set to a classic Botswana backdrop.
