National parks in Botswana are among Africa’s wildest parks with limited amenities, poor roads little more than tracks in places and huge open spaces where nature reigns supreme. Whilst not actually a national park or reserve, Botswana is renown worldwide for the Okavango Delta region in the north of the country, providing water and supporting an incredible array of African wildlife. All national parks in Botswana are run by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP), based in Gaborone, who enforce a strict no driving after dark rule in the parks.
Self-drive safaris are a big thing in Botswana, and are popular with overland tours and independent travellers alike. You’ll need a rugged 4WD to access all areas, and be confident that you’re totally self-sufficient if camping on your own in the bush.
