Botswana

  • Don & Gillian travelled to Botswana & Namibia’s Caprivi StripHaving now completed our first Botswana safari we appreciate more fully how thoughtfully you had put the itinerary together. This was also commented on very favourably by other travellers we met and talked to and who wanted to know who had set up our safari. Very many thanks for that. Everyone we met in Botswana and Namibia was welcoming, pleasant and helpful. We cannot remember such universal warmth on any previous trip we have made. In our time we have both visited about 100 different countries either for work or pleasure.Don & Gillian travelled to Botswana & Namibia’s Caprivi Strip

Regions

By way of introduction to the regions of Botswana, we first want to dwell on the Kalahari Basin, which contrary to being a specific area, is in fact the largest continuous stretch of sand in the world, from South Africa in the south to the Congo in the north. Thus it can be said that all the regions specified below fall within this greater ecosystem, and could all be called ‘the Kalahari’! However, the influence of various great waterways has allowed many of these regions to develop so that they no longer offer typical Kalahari conditions.
