Botswana captivates with a unique mix of impressively untouched nature and dreamlike landscapes. For safari enthusiasts and nature lovers, Botswana is the perfect country to be.
The name Botswana derives from the people of the Tswana, which forms the majority of the population in the country of Botswana. Botswana is often referred to as the patterned country of Africa, since its independence in 1966 has a democratic basic order and a government legitimized by regularly held elections. This stability makes Botswana a very popular holiday destination in southern Africa.
The country between Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa is marked by two fascinating contrasts. On the one hand, Botswana is 80% from the Kalahari Desert and the approximately 15,000 km² of the Okavango Basin offers hundreds of species of animals, a lot of forest and numerous small waterways that merge into lagoons. Especially during the rainy season a unique animal and plant world can be admired here on trips and safaris.
