The citizens refer to themselves as "Batswana". Proud, conservative, resourceful and respectful, the Batswana have an ingrained feeling of national identity and an impressive belief in their government and country. Despite some heavyweight social responsibilities, the Batswana have an easygoing and unhurried approach to life, and the emotional framework of the extended family generally makes for an inclusive network.

Botswana is flat, and up to 70% is covered by the Kalahari Desert. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast. A mid-sized country of just over two million people, Botswana is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. It was one of the poorest countries in Africa when it gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1966. Botswana has since transformed itself, becoming one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.

Botswana experiences extremes in both temperature and weather. In the winter (late May through August), days are normally clear, warm and sunny, and nights are cool to cold. In summer (October to April), Botswana experiences a lot of rain and this is also the time of the highest humidity and the most stifling heat.

The unit of currency is the Pula (P), which is subdivided into 100 Thebe. Pula means rain in Setswana - water being one of Botswana’s most precious commodities.

Activities

Botswana's principal tourist attractions are its game reserves, with hunting and photographic safaris available. Other attractions include the Okavango Delta region, which during the rainy season is a maze of waterways, islands, and lakes, Chobe National Park, home of the largest elephant population in the world; the golden sands of the vast Kalahari Desert; the Tuli Block with its rugged terrain and the Moremi Game Reserve.

It is a land of contrasts, where one can experience contrasting life styles. Travel from the busy urban centres, to rural villages, and even to the most remote life of the San people. Safaris, canoeing, boat cruises, hunting and fishing adventures make it the ideal destination for most adventurers.

Botswana is well known for having some of the best wilderness and wildlife areas on the African continent. With a full 38 percent of its total land area devoted to national parks, reserves and wildlife management areas – for the most part unfenced, allowing animals to roam wild and free – travel through many parts of the country has the feeling of moving through an immense Nature wonderland. A visitor of Botswana can look forward to uncrowded parks and reserves and a pristine landscape.
