Botswana has one overriding appeal for tourists: its stunning wildlife. Every permutation of the African safari experience is possible in this country: a Botswana flight in a hot air balloon across endless miles of the Kalahari desert, the traditional jeeps-and-binoculars game-spotting in Chobe National Park or floating in a canoe on the Okavango Delta in the tracks left by the animals.

The sparsely-populated land-locked country in southern Africa is well-developed for tourism, despite only gaining independence (from Britain) in 1966. At that time, the country was one of the world’s poorest, but the subsequent discovery of diamonds, along with booming tourism, has boosted the economy immeasurably. Botswana nowadays is something of a high-end destination with luxury game lodges abounding for travellers wanting a civilised spot from which to enjoy a sundowner.

The southeastern corner of the country, in and around Gaborone, is where most people live and the point of arrival for all international flights to Botswana. However, the Kalahari Desert is located in the centre of the country and the Okavanago Delta in the north, so travel across the country is essential to get to the big sights. Sit back and enjoy the journey, the scenery on the way – flatlands, deserts and plains – will be spectacular.
