Botswana captivates with a unique mix of impressively untouched nature and dreamlike landscapes. For safari lovers and nature enthusiasts, Botswana is the perfect destination.
The name Botswana is derived from the Tswana people, who form the majority of the population in the country of Botswana. Botswana is often referred to as Africa’s model country because, since its independence in 1966, it has had a free democratic basic order and a government legitimized by regularly held elections. This stability makes Botswana a very popular vacation destination in southern Africa.
The country between Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa is characterized by two fascinating contrasts. On the one hand, Botswana consists of 80% Kalahari desert, on the other hand, the Okavango basin of about 15,000 km² offers hundreds of animal species, a lot of forest and countless small waterways that join together to form lagoons. Especially during the rainy season a unique fauna and flora can be marveled at on trips and safaris here
