"Why is it you can never hope to describe the emotion Africa creates? You are lifted. Out of whatever pit, unbound from whatever tie, released from whatever fear. You are lifted and you see it all from above.." – Francesca Marciano
Situated in the southern reaches of Africa, Botswana is renowned for its pristine wilderness areas, characterised by deep lagoons, wetlands, lush palms, rugged hills, and desert plains. The country’s primary tourist drawcard is undoubtedly the vast red expanse of the Kalahari Desert and its remarkably beautiful Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world.
These natural wonders provide a tranquil haven for an abundance of African wildlife to thrive. Other highlights include the impressive Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where visitors are privy to massive zebra migrations during the flood season; the Savuti Plains, which host a significant pride of lions; and the Tsodilo Hills, where 4,500 rock paintings form a unique record of human settlement over many millennia.
