Botswana


Overview

Okavango Delta
Okavango Delta

A land of stability, peace and prosperity, Botswana is a role model for other African countries. Since independence in 1966 and the discovery of diamonds in 1967, Botswana's economy has grown from strength to strength attracting both investors and tourists. Today it is estimated that Botswana is the largest diamond producer in the world.

The government's tourism policies encourage community, ecological and low-volume, high-cost tourism. This sensible approach ensures the protection of the fragile environment and its resources, improves the lives of its local people and ensures Botswana remains an exclusive and unspoilt safari destination.

Those privileged to visit it, will find diverse terrain offering great photographic opportunities including the wild waterlands of the Okavango Delta, white salt pans where ancient lakes have long since dried, vast grasslands and the endless Kalahari Desert with its orange sand and low vegetation.
