WANT TO VISIT AFRICA FOR THE FIRST TIME? Botswana has everything you want to see in Africa without the things you don’t. What do I mean? Botswana has great natural beauty and plenty of wild animals you can go and see. It also has the picturesque Kalahari Desert, traditional culture, warm hearted people, modern roads, solid democratic government and a good economy/currency. It does not have crime issues, government disasters or grinding poverty that can sometimes be a real issue when travelling. Botswanans are proud of their country and it’s a great place to explore. Never been to Africa? Try this fantastic country. You won’t be disappointed!

Been to Africa? You love it!

    What a place to visit in your goal to get them all in. The adventure and sites have to be one of your top memories among, maybe 100?

    Definitely high on my wish list! So far though I have failed to convince Chris we should go there, so I read VT pages and other info regularly to get my fix and whet my appetite further ;-) Lots of good advice here (especially transport tips) for when I do finally persuade him - for persuade him I will!!

    BTW I have to admire your dedication to the VT cause - photographing your wound, and your very stuck car BEFORE getting on with dealing with the emergency ;-)
