BOTSWANA
WHY TRAVEL HERE?

Celebrating its 50th year of independence in  2016, Botswana is one of Africa’s most stable countries and attracts visitors from across the globe to enjoy its incredible diversity of National Parks and major attractions. The Okavango Delta is often regarded as the jewel of the Kalahari Desert, a 15,000 sq km maze of stunning islands & channels which team with wildlife, birdlife & exquisite scenery, and offer a must-do makoro (dugout canoe) adventure.

The  Moremi Game Reserve & Chobe National Park are other wildlife hot spots for thousands of visitors each year, offering over 100 mammal species, 400 bird species and regarded as some of Africa’s finest game viewing destinations. In contrast are the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, a vast ‘sea of salt’ of 12,000 sq km, home to the 2nd largest zebra migration in Africa; and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, where one can still be guided by San/Bushmen who give you a glimpse into their fascinating world of surviving in one of the planet’s harshest environments. These contrasting areas give rise to the popular “desert & delta” safari.

Being the size of France or Texas but having only 2 million people, Botswana is one of Africa’s wealthiest countries per capita and as a result has encouraged a low-volume, high revenue approach to tourism. This means that although safaris to Botswana are aimed at the high-end market, one can enjoy so much space and scope in relative exclusivity, and 40% of the country is devoted to its Parks & Game Reserves.
