Botswana is a very safe, politically stable country, rich in natural goods and wildlife and bordering with Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Despite being quite a large country (the size of France) Botswana remains to be one of the most sparsely populated nations in the world with just over two million people.
Botswana is truly a unique country with a landscape and beauty unlike any other; from deserts to delta, bushveld to grasslands, savannas to salt pans, Botswana is a true joy to explore and offers a world of adventure to all tourists.
English is the official language of the country, it is taught at schools, and is widely spoken in all urban centres. Even in rural areas, many local villagers (especially younger ones who have received schooling) will be able to converse in English. However, Setswana is the national language and the most spoken language throughout the country.
The currency used is called Pula and is divided into Thebe. In Setswana (the local language) this means rain.
THE TULI BLOCK
The Tuli Block is Botswana’s hidden gem: a narrow part of land at Botswana’s eastern border, one of the few areas with freehold land and is unlike any other region in the country due to the variety in landscape. The Tuli Block is also known as ‘the land of the giants’ due to the enormous trees that can be found in the area.
