BOTSWANA

“Botswana

Sitting in the heart of Southern Africa, Botswana is arguably one of the best places in the world to view African wildlife. The water that flows into this vast country from the northwest spreads out across the dry Kalahari Desert in a massive inland delta that supports an even wider array of life. Nowhere else can you see lions, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, giraffes, and hippos all living in such close quarters, and interacting in such fascinating (and photogenic) ways. One of the most stable economies in Africa since the country’s independence in 1966, Botswana has been called Africa’s Last Eden by wildlife conservationists, and is home to nearly all big species of African game, and also to tribes of hunter-gatherers who live off the arid land in much the same way as our distant ancestors once did.

  • The Walking Tree Travel "people" are amazing. They are organized, caring, attentive and above all, "grounded". :) Every teen should have the opportunity to learn about these programs. It's not for everyone, but for those who wish to sprout their wings and learn of the world, while being reminded of what really matters in life, and have FUN, then this is IT!
