Botswana

Time needed: 1 Week(s) to 4 Week(s)

Bordered by South Africa, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe, Botswana is a landlocked country that stretches for 600 370kmē and is dominated mainly by the Kalahari Desert that covers over 70% of its surface. Botswana is home to the magnificent Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta as well as a rapidly growing diamond mining industry. Almost 20% of the country is protected as either a national park or as a game or wildlife management area providing space for many game reserves including the Chobe National Park where large and small mammals and birds exist freely. Botswana is a dry country that is prone to drought and water is a precious resource. There are two main seasons; summer, between October and April and winter, between May and September. Most of the rain falls in the summer months between December and February although rainfall occurs mostly as short, quick thunderstorms that don't bring forth a lot of water.

Botswana promises unspoiled wilderness, abundant adventure and the chance to experience nature in a simple yet enchanting way.
