About this book

Botswana boasts some of southern Africa's most glorious and unspoiled safari destinations, with a staggering array of wildlife and pristine habitats. Most spectacular of the country's natural treasures is the Okavango Delta, home to unsurpassed animal and bird life, which you can discover on foot, in a 4x4 vehicle or on a leisurely mokoro trip. But wildlife is not all Botswana has to offer. The insider's guide takes you on a journey through a country that has one of the most vibrant economies in the region and is home to a thriving arts and cultural scene. It also gives you an insight into the life and people, and practical details on the best overland trips you can take, the ideal camps and lodges for a safari, and wonderful insider tips on where to find the best arts, crafts, festivals and music on your travels.
