A small, land-locked country in southern Africa, Botswana, is one of the most stable and fully democratic countries in Africa. This peaceful nation is home to virtually all of Africa’s big game, one of continent’s largest population of elephants, and an astounding array of bird species. With spectacular scenery, world class game viewing, and fascinating indigenous cultures, Botswana is more than just a safari destination. One of Africa’s most successful nations, it remains a sparsely populated and relatively little-visited country, a benefit for EXPLORE travelers. Here one finds the Africa of the imagination – pure, wild, and spectacularly beautiful.

A week in Botswana is perfectly paired with a couple of days extension to Victoria Falls where the Zambezi River opens out into an extravaganza of roaring, spray-tumbled water, known to the locals as “Mosi oa Tunya” (the smoke that thunders). Here at the brooding statue of David Livingstone, who in 1855 named the Falls after his Queen, the raging river is compressed into a massive surge of green-white water known as the Devil’s Cataract. Few sights are as awe-inspiring as this when the ground rumbles with the forces of the water.
