Is Botswana the right destination for you?

South Africa's discreet northern neighbour, Botswana is undoubtedly the pearl of southern Africa . This quiet, sparsely populated country has avoided civil wars, post-colonial racial tensions and conflicts endured by most of its neighbours. What's more, since gaining independence from the United Kingdom in 1966, Botswana has held democratic elections - a rarity on the Africa continent.

This quiet, sparsely populated country has avoided civil wars, post-colonial racial tensions and conflicts endured by most of its neighbours. What's more, since gaining independence from the United Kingdom in 1966, Botswana has held democratic elections - a rarity on the Africa continent. The result is a peaceful country, where life is generally good and provides a pervading optimism that rubs off on its visitors. From a geographical point of view, it's a land of contrasts where heavy rainfall and drought co-exist. Thanks to the great rivers of North Linyanti and Chobe and the Okavango Delta in the north, the country has an extremely varied plant and animal life, whereas the south houses the arid Kalahari Desert, which stretches as far as the capital, Gaborone. A country with as many contrasts as there are wonders. So, are you ready to discover Botswana ? See more

What to see and do in Botswana

With only 2 million inhabitants and covering 580,000 square kilometres (slightly larger than the UK), Botswana has one of the lowest population densities in the world. This is one place where you won't be bothered by crowds! There are loads of ways that you can explore this amazing country's heritage . Starting, of course, with the famous Okavango Delta. The largest inland delta in the world, a giant oasis in the middle of a vast arid area, it houses a wealth of breath-taking wildlife. In Botswana, as with all of southern Africa, you'll constantly hear about the 'Big Five', the five most dangerous animals that rule the savannah, as described by Hemingway in Snows of Kilimanjaro: lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros. But local wildlife is obviously not limited to these infamous mammals and the discerning visitor will quickly learn that zebras, giraffes, cheetahs, flamingos, antelope, and elephants abound, particularly in the north of the country that boasts a population of around 40,000 elephants! The country is also home to numerous parks with beautiful, varied landscapes and incredible wildlife; Chobe, Savuti and Moremi are prime examples.
