The Botswana Rivers
add to the natural beauty of Botswana, Africa. Some of the famous Botswana Rivers
include the Thamalakane River, Limpopo River, Molopo River, Okavango River and Chobe River.
Most of the Botswana Rivers do not originate in Botswana itself. Most of the Botswana Rivers originate either in South Africa or in Angola. Few Botswana Rivers terminate in the Atlantic Ocean, while some drain into the Indian Ocean. Because of the earth movements along the course line of these rivers, some of the Botswana Rivers have given rise to the formation of hidden lagoons. Large varieties of flora can be found in and around the Botswana Rivers. Various types of water lilies are found in abundance in the lagoons.
The banks of Botswana Rivers are mostly covered with thick woods. Along a few banks, villages or cities lives have set up. Some of the Botswana Rivers provide major transportation facilities for the villagers. Boat riding facilities are also available for the tourists in a few Botswana Rivers.
Most of the Botswana Rivers dry up in the summer season. But in the monsoon season, these rivers often flood their banks. The tourists prefer to visit the Botswana Rivers during the monsoon. Varieties of wild animals are found in and around the Botswana Rivers.
