BOTSWANA MAGICAL EXPERINCE!

 

Sitting at the heart of Southern Africa, Botswana is a truly diverse land.

This is undoubtedly Africa's greatest wildlife destination, with game roaming freely across the plains and not restricted to the parks. The beauty of this country goes beyond modern times to ancient human settlements linked to the present day San people living in the Tsodilo Hills for the last thousands of years. The place has enormous cultural significance. Travelling through Botswana is easy and comfortable with excellent road networks rare on this continent.
