Botswana
Botswana conjures thoughts of dramatic landscapes, a watery desert, Africa’s largest concentration of elephant herds and the enchanted Okavango Delta…

Situated near the border of South Africa, Botswana’s capital Gaborone is host to eclectic accommodation, restaurants, shops and night clubs. Inland to the west, the Kalahari Desert expands into indefinite horizons where the night sky is alive with glittery stars. Perhaps more spectacular still, is the lavish Okavango Delta, which is framed by biodiversity such as savannahs,

woodlands and forests. Botswana is of course renowned for the Chobe National Park where elephants roam free to be admired by the explorative traveller. To the east, the Tuli Block near Zimbabwe consists of an abundance of privately owned game farms, offering safari tourism which includes viewings of remnants of ancient civilisations through San rock art.
