Botswana is a small landlocked country in the heart of Southern Africa. While it may be small, Botswana is an impressive nation, being one of the few democratic republics in Africa since independence from Britain in the 1960s.
The country's geography is largely marked by the Okavango Delta, which is where the Okavango River reaches a tectonic trough and disperses out into lush marshes, and unique ecosystems. It is here where you will find some of the best, and most unique, wildlife viewing experiences in Africa. The national parks are home to elephants, lions, buffalo and much more. Botswana also has a vibrant culture among many small villages which are known for their artful basket weaving and pottery. see moresee less
