Botswana is a southern African landlocked nation, surrounded by Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa, Namibia and is one of Africa’s most popular inland tourist destinations. Despite being quite a large country, Botswana remains to be one of the world’s smallest communities with just over two million people calling themselves citizens. Most of the locals can be found working in the nation’s capital city, Gaborone, however many others work on game reserves and with the country’s tourism industry.
Over seventy percent of Botswana is covered by the Kalahari Desert; the largest desert in southern Africa and one of Botswana’s largest claims to fame. Here, guests are enchanted of the beauties within the desert and will find a new appreciation towards the tribes that called this rugged terrain home.
Botswana’s Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta and is alive with vibrant bird species and wildlife. In comparison to the vast Kalahari Dessert, the delta is lush and green; a true magical world where life is simple and relaxation is unavoidable.
A trip to Botswana isn’t complete without a visit to the Makgadikgadi Pan, an incredibly large salt pan where you’ll delight in peace and quiet. There is hardly any live here, as the salt pan makes it hard for nature flourish, however exploring the pan will show you another wonder unlike any other, a true escape from civilization and a surreal, beautiful place.
Botswana is truly a unique country with a landscape and beauty unlike any other; from deserts to delta, bushveld to grasslands, savannas to salt pans, Botswana is a true joy to explore and offers a world of adventure to all tourists.
