Horse safari in Botswana. A unique ecosystem in the world, the second largest internal delta on our planet, after that of Niger. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, every year it pours 11 cubic kilometers of water into the Kalahari, creating an alluvial plain full of islands, lagoons and canals. Thus was born life in the desert, a breathtaking spectacle, an ever-changing landscape that changes with the seasons. Riding in the marshes or floating on a small mokoro you will experience emotions that will leave behind, after your return, that nostalgic train called Mal d’Afrique.
