So, settle down with a nice cup of tea and enjoy reading what this fascinating country can show you.

Botswana really is one the ultimate safari destinations in Africa, their high income and low impact tourism policy means the safari camps and lodges of the Okavango Delta are spread out and remarkably exclusive, which enables your game viewing to be completely private. The Kalahari and Makgadikgadi Pans are also enchanting. With huge zebra and wildebeest migrations, to meerkats, to the oldest tribe in Africa – the San Bush people. On top of these fabulous destinations, Botswana has dedicated their entire army to anti-poaching, which is why the country has become such a haven for wildlife.
