Botswana -The Top Country In The World To Visit 2016

 Oct 31, 2015

"Botswana is the top country in the world to visit on 2016" - so declared by Lonely Planet. This bestselling inspirational travel guide says that Botswana takes it to the top thanks to being "a unique destination; an unusual combination of desert and delta that draws an immense concentration of wildlife".

According to the book, "Botswana is so full of life-changing experiences it would be easier to list the things that aren't remarkable. Here is a real wilderness that puts you in touch with palpable primitive thrills and fears, whether it's being poled by an African gondolier in a mokoro past pods of sunbathing hippos in the Okavango Delta; or feeling the spirit of the first men in the thousand=year beauty of Kubu Islands ancient Baobabs backlit by incandescent constellations in a vast night sky".

LONELY PLANET'S BEST IN TRAVEL 2016 CONTRIBUTOR, TOM HALL, explained, "Botswana has remained off the radar for most people, who believe it's too expensive, too difficult to get to or doesn't cater for families. But that isn't true. Go Now! Go in the green season or go in the dry season - any time of year, this stunning country is waiting to be explored."
