Botswana Information & Trip Planning

Have you ever dreamed of getting to know Africa in its essence? Well, if yes – here you are: Botswana. Officially it’s known as the Republic of Botswana and located in the southern part of Africa. It’s a landlocked country that once used to be the British protectorate of Bechuanaland. Botswana got its contemporary name in 1966 and since then it’s been well-known as a country of strong and stable democracy. Here’s an interesting fact: the Republic of Boswana elections have never been interrupted which proves the fact that everything is well-arranged in this country.

Botswana is a flat country the most part of which is located in the Kalahari Desert. It’s surrounded by Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Kazungula. Botswana’s inhabitants are approximately 2 million people the large percentage of which live in the capital of the state which is amazing Gaborone.

Botswana is well-known for its fastest-growing economy. It’s an official and stable member of the African Union and a great number of other world associations. But despite these pluses Botswana is among the countries that are under the strike of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. That’s a shame to know that almost the quarter of Botswana’s population is infected.

In Kalahari feel free to visit the greatest national parks of the country. The first one we suggest you visiting is Central Kalahari Game Reserve. It was established in 1961 and is considered to be the second largest game reserve on the Earth. Here you can bump into giraffes, hyenas, cheetahs, lions, leopards, wild dogs and other amazing representatives of wild nature. After these park move on to the Chobe National Park which is the most diverse park of the state of Botswana. One more place that definitely should be visited is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park that is a large wildlife preserve and conservation area.

Come to Botswana and explore the beautiful wildlife of the state!
