There would be hardly any better examples of resurrection than Botswana. The main contributors to the resurrection story of Botswana is nature itself. Botswana has some of the best natural reserves in the world that are brimming with wildlife. Botswana has been able to preserve the wildlife and tap
the tourism potential through it.
At the time of its independence in the year 1966, Botswana was one of the poorest and lacking countries in Africa. After more than 4 decades of struggles and understanding its capabilities, it is today among the most stable and fastest growing economies in the continent.
Botswana is a landlocked country which is bordered by South Africa in south, Zimbabwe in northeast, Namibia in west and has a small border with Zambia in north. Nearly 70% of 600,370 km2 area of Botswana is covered by Kalahari desert. It is also home to Okavango Delta in the northwest which is the largest inland delta in the world.
Today, a large part of the country's income comes from tourism. Tourists visit Botswana to explore the wildlife in all possible ways; by air, water and land. It is home to the famous Central Kalahari Game Reserve which is the second largest game reserve in the world. Small areas in southeast region of the country are mountainous and give rise to few more adventure options like trekking and hiking.
Gaborone is the capital and the largest city of Botswana. Just a village not so long back, it has become one of the most developed cities in entire Africa. There is an interesting mix of colonial period buildings and the new age skyscrapers in the city. Gaborone is surrounded by Kgale Hills which are the largest hills in Botswana. Climb up the hill to get some exquisite views of the city. Game reserves like Mokolodi and Gaborone Game Reserve are also a major attraction of the city.
Other important cities of Botswana are Francistown, Ghanzi, and Kasane. [-]
