Botswana is one of the precious rarities where the people are dwarfed by the wildlife. It is an incredibly diverse landscape, where personal experience may only describe the many wonders of the topography; a world teeming with marvelous discovery and invaluable surprises around every corner. The Kalahari, a magnificent thirstland that encompasses 85 percent of the country; the endless river of the Okavango Delta, which snakes into the country from Angola to form 16000 sqkm of convoluted channels and islands; the nutrient rich remnant of the lake that once was as seen in the Makgadikgadi Pans; these are the landscapes of Botswana, a world 65 million years in the making.
Today, it is Botswana’s dynamic array of living creatures that make these landscapes some of the most captivating in the world; the herds of mammoth elephants traversing the plains in the hot African heat and the graceful lions prowling the grasses in the coolness of night; the hippos wading in the calm Chobe River waters and the brilliant sunset hues that reflect their sultry presence. These are the images of Botswana, and the memories that will last a lifetime.
