BOTSWANA

Botwana is one of the most stable, economically prosperous and developed countries in Africa. Blessed with abundant wildlife, seemingly limitless natural resources, and friendly and engaging people, Botswana has oodles to offer the intrepid traveller.

Highlights

Experience the stunning beauty of the world’s largest intact inland Delta – the Okavango; the unimaginable vastness of the world’s second largest game reserve – the Central Kalahari Game Reserve; the isolation and other-worldliness of the Makgadikgadi – uninhabited pans the size of Portugal; and the astoundingly prolific wildlife of the Chobe National Park.

Why travel to Botswana

The Botswana safari industry today is built on photographic tourism but for many years the country was the haunt of trophy hunters. The massive growth in photographic tourism has precipitated the end of the hunting industry, with an announcement by the tourism minister that hunting would be stopped in the country as of 2014.

Much work has been done to include local people in the benefits that tourism, managed in a sensitive and sustainable way, can bring to an area. No tourism operator owns or has complete control over the land on which their operation is based, so ensuring controlled management of the country's heritage.
