Sub-region: Southern Africa

Capital: Gaborone

The main tourist attractions of Botswana are its game reserves and the ability to photograph its lush wildlife on safari. Among the other attractions in the Okavango Delta region, during the rainy season, stands a true navigable maze between the islands and lakes. National parks like Chobe National Park in northern countries are not far behind. Visitors of Botswana can enjoy a wide range of activities revolving around nature, bird watching while hiking, without forgetting elephant riding tours, canoeing, horseback riding, fishing, motor biking and many other activities. The diamond mines tour in Orapa and Jwaneng can be organized, however this option is uncommon and no promotion is made since this activity is known through word of mouth.

Editor’s words  We like Botswana for the incredible beauty of its landscapes, deserts, savannahs and wildlife. A beauty to appreciate because Botswana is a relatively expensive destination.
