Botswana has always been a quiet country, but it is now emerging as one of the most exciting tourist destinations in Africa. The main reason for this is that we are a peaceful nation, with very little crime or corruption and we offer our visitors a warm welcome. Botswana is also incredibly rich in natural beauty and wildlife – we are home to over 30% of the world’s remaining elephants and nearly half of Africa’s rhino population. Our desert landscapes have some amazing sights (including some ancient dinosaur fossils) and we have an incredible variety of birdlife (over 600 species) too.
This diversity creates many different holiday options depending on what you want out of your trip – whether it’s adventure activities such as river rafting or bungee jumping, or just relaxing at one of our luxurious safari lodges with a cocktail while watching wildlife cross into view from your private deck…
