The World Around Us

Map of Botswana


Think safari and you get the Okavango Delta. Think shopping and visit Gaborone. Think diamonds and you know the possibilities in health and education. Botswana is a politically stable country and its urban people enjoy a relatively high standard of living.

A fairly sparsely populated country with an estimated 2 million people, wildlife is abundant here. Due to lack of time, we have mostly seen the highway, bus stations and Gaborone. Yet, we knew quickly that Botswana is a country to love and to revisit.

Please note this is a personal blog about traveling around the world.

Riding through Botswana

We leave on time to go to the Zimbabwe/Botswana border. It’s an easy ride, with lots of baboons that are sitting and lying on the road for some warmth.
