If there's a place where one wishes time could stand still, it's this beautiful country. In Botswana, you will encounter endless horizons. The unforgettable wilderness, the splendid waterways of the Okavango Delta, the Kalahari sand dunes and the abundance of wildlife are just a few features of what makes Botswana your ultimate destination.
Beyond the narrow eastern corridor where the majority of population is concentrated, Botswana is a largely roadless wilderness of savannas, deserts, wetlands and salt pans. Botswana is one of the few remaining destinations in Africa that still provides a good sense of adventure safari. It's expansive game parks and reserves, while offering wildlife as diverse and abundant as that found anywhere else, and still largely uncommercial and therefore untamed. Africa's best kept secret offers all this and more.
