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.
