Botswana

While this is not an environment that is conducive to much activity outside of safari, Active Africa guides have led cross-country expeditions in off-road vehicles to explore the remote wilderness and regularly escort safari trips into the Okavango Delta and the more easily accessible Chobe National Park.

The “Switzerland” of Africa, Botswana has benefited from a stable political environment and a healthy economy based on its mineral wealth and tourism assets.  Never formally colonised, the country has displayed effective democratic governance since its independence in 1966 and combined with the discovery of diamonds in 1967, has resulted in one of the world’s fastest growing economies. Since the majority of the country is uninhabitable arid and semi-arid wilderness, Botswana has one of the lowest population densities in the world – less than 3 per km². The result is that vast tracts of untouched wilderness have been declared National Park areas.
