It’s Wednesday again, and I’m dreaming of another far-off destination. This week, my attention is turned to the African country of Botswana.
Botswana first came to my attention through the HBO series based on the Ladies No.1 Detective Agency books (by the way, both the series and the books are great, if you’re wondering). I hadn’t really thought much about Botswana before that, but I found myself captivated with the beautiful scenery and bright, colorful patterns from the show. Thus, my Botswana wanderlust began.
Located just North of South Africa, it’s a lovely little country that I fully plan on visiting someday. This landlocked country is one of the most stable countries in Africa. It’s sparsely populated and boasts fantastic opportunities to experience incredible African wilderness. Botswana is a popular safari destination which (unfortunately for me) can often cater to upmarket (read: more expensive) travelers.
You can learn more about the country and fuel your own Botswana wanderlust by visiting their tourism website at www.botswanatourism.co.bw
Have you ever been to Botswana? I would love to hear all about it!
