Botswana Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 52%, Botswana offers arguably the best place on the entire continent to experience what brings most of us to Africa - the wildlife. At the top of the list, by far, is the Okavango Delta. This world famous ecosystem is literally a world unto itself - with the only way in or out via canoe. But the best thing about the entire experience is the fact that you can go in search of the Big 5 on foot (with a guide, of course). This puts you right in the middle of the action; and don't be surprised if you get closer than you ever imagined to some of the continent's most famous inhabitants. Botswana also offers one of the most culturally significant locations in all of Southern Africa in the form of Tsodilo, whose hills are home to the San people of the Kalahari and, according to legend, is the resting place for the spirits of the deceased. So, if you're looking for a place where you can both enjoy the wildlife and also gain an understanding of the local culture, Botswana is waiting for you.
