The Okavango Delta
Before we narrate our Botswanan experience, please keep in mind that it is always feasible, especially for travel-loving Brits, to find direct cheap flights from London to Freetown! Let's begin there! The Okavango Delta flows from the Angolan highlands all the way down to Botswana's flat plains. This one-of-a-kind wetland covers 15,000 square kilometres and is home to a plethora of endangered animals, including white and black rhinoceros.
The flood season, when the delta's colourful eco-system comes alive and draws the largest densities of species in Africa, is what makes this location one of Africa's Seven Natural Wonders.
