Situated in the centre of southern Africa, Botswana offers an unprecedented safari experience in an environment that changes from dry saltpans to a lush, flooded wildlife utopia within mere kilometres.
A highlight in Botswana is the Okavango Delta which fans out across the northwest of the country, creating a network of islands and lagoons that annually receive water from rainfalls over a thousand kilometres away, and that teems with wildlife. Beyond the Delta, the Kalahari Desert forms the bulk of Botswana. In the northeast, are the Chobe and Linyanti Wildlife Reserves, renowned for their predators and large concentrations of elephants. Active meerkats are one of the main attractions in the endless nothingness of the Magkadagkadi Pans.
Historically Botswana tells an outstanding African success story. Prior to independence in 1966, it was one of the world’s poorest countries, an unexplored land only visited by hardy adventurers. But after embarking on innovative and proactive ways to attract high-quality, low-volume tourism, it successfully created a sustainable industry while still preserving the environment and wildlife – and all of that changed.
