Botswana, a land of staggering beauty, is ideally located in the heart of Southern Africa. This is the country where the river ends in the sands of the Kalahari. Its natural beauty lies in its land constellation, its wilderness, wildlife and cultural diversity. Botswana is a land of contrast, here one experiences contrasting life styles as one travels from the busy urban centres, to rural-villages, and even to the most remote dweller life of the San people.

Since Botswana became independent, it has gone from one of the poorest countries in Africa to one of the richest, but the wealth is is not fairly distributed and over one-third of the population still live in poverty. Botswana is one of the most stable and proserous countries in Africa, and is completely landlocked. A very unusual strip of land, the Caprivi Strip, which is Namibian territory that runs for 500 km between the countries and is only 10 km wide, separates Botswana from Angola. The Western part of the country is covered by desert. In the north are the Okavango swamps, formed where the Okavango river forms a delta before its waters disappear beneath the desert.

Come to Botswana and feel that constant sense of being close to nature.

About 17% of the land has been set aside for game parks and reserves. The diversity of the attractions range from the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta and hailed as a World Heritage site, the Chobe National Park, home of an estimated 73,000 elephants, and the Kalahari Desert which occupies about three quarters of the western part of the country.

The Kalahari is famous for having a number of national parks and reserves such as the Central Kgalagadi and Khutse Game Reserve, the Trans-Frontier National Park with its golden sands sprouting into and across the South Africa. Wild Kalahari with its vast and incredible night skies is a spectacular phenomenon. More than 2750 ancient rock paintings from the San people can be found at 200 sites in the Four Tsodilo Hills (male, female, child & north hill).
