Botswana is an unspoiled land of timeless beauty - striking salt pans, diamond-rich deserts, fertile flood plains, vast grasslands, and flatlands punctuated with dramatic rocky outcrops. Our country's natural appeal lies in our stunning and seemingly endless wilderness, prolific wildlife, cultural diversity, and welcoming people. Botswana is truly one of Africa's top safari destinations, teeming with game and bird-life, thanks in large part to a strong commitment to wildlife protection and management and environmental conservation. We are home to the world renowned Okavango Delta, Kalahari Desert, the Chobe National Park and Moremi Game Reserve, where animals roam freely and offer our visitors superb safari experiences. Botswana is one of Africa's best birding countries. What the country lacks in endemics it more than makes up for in variety and sheer numbers of birds. Several rare and highly sought-after species occur here including the rare Pel's Fishing Owl, the endangered Wattled Crane, the near-endemic Slaty Egret and the diminutive African Pygmy Goose. A landlocked country about the size of Texas, Botswana is located in the heart of southern Africa. Our country is bordered by Zambia and Zimbabwe to the northeast, Namibia to the north and west, and South Africa to the south and southeast.
