Roughly the size of Texas, but with less than 2 million people, Botswana is located in the heart of southern Africa. Botswana is blessed with many natural resources (both diamonds and wildlife) and is the wealthiest African country per capita. This is reflected in the countries conservation philosophy of high price/low volume tourism. While more expensive than neighboring countries, the benefits far outweigh the expense.
Having dedicated more land to national parks and preserves than any other African nation, this is truly a safari paradise. From big game hunting, to wing shooting to fishing, or even just a photographic safari with your family, Botswana is an ideal destination for those seeking the real wild Africa in its most pristine beauty.
