Botswana general info
Botswana is Africa's oldest democracy, has the strongest currency with a history of prosperity and peace for a perfect safari holiday
It occupies 581 730km² of plateau with an average elevation of 1000 m. More than 100 000km² is devoted to game reserves and national parks. Over 80% of Botswana is a semi arid region of grassland or thorn trees with erratic rainfall.
Beyond the narrow eastern corridor where the majority of the population is concentrated, Botswana is a largely roadless wilderness of savannahs, deserts, wetlands and salt pans.
With its unique okavango delta and the wildlife wonderland of the Chobe national park, Botswana is one of Africa's premier safari destinations.
Botswana's leaders took the view that high quality / low volume tourism was the best way to create a sustainable industry, while still preserving the environment. The high price, low impact has worked brilliantly
April to August is one of the best times to visit Botswana, although it is winter the weather is still pleasant and it is dry. This however is also the busiest time as Europe and America have annual holidays
The least crowded times are June, early July and mid to late September. Summer is probably the worst time to visit as the rains damage roads and game is less visible
