You can see all of these, and many more, magnificent animals in Botswana, still living in their natural habitats. It is possible to see some or almost all of them in one day. Botswana is one of the few places on earth where you can still experience the extraordinary beauty and variety of creation.
It is a wild place of wild beats, a remnant of paradise where one can pray the whole day just by looking around and enjoying the privilege to see wonders and hear silence telling you the story of who you are, where you go and how, and experience the almost tangible spiritual reality, the reality of the Creator.
