Botswana prides itself on being Africa’s leader in eco-friendly tourism. With one of the lowest population densities in Africa and with a tourism model focused on avoiding crowds of visitors, it is the perfect destination to enjoy nature in isolation.
It’s stunning beauty spans through a variety of habitats centred around the heart of the country – the Okavango Delta – where water is born out of the desert creating an oasis of life and natural beauty. Culturally, UNESCO has nicknamed Botswana’s Tsodilo Hills the ‘Louvre of the Desert’ due to over 4000 individual rock art paintings that can be found there.
Botswana has set aside almost 45% of its land for wildlife protection making it a refuge for high concentrations of endangered and vulnerable animals such as black rhinos, wild dogs, cheetahs, and elephants.
