Botswana's striking salt pans, diamond-rich deserts, fertile flood plains and spectacular game reserves make it exceptionally dramatic.

Situated in the centre of Southern Africa, landlocked Botswana has Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe as its neighbours. The Kalahari Desert forms the majority of Botswana. The Okavango Delta is a wonderous wetland within a desert, receiving its waters from rain falling over a thousand kilometres away and sustaining a huge diversity of fauna and flora. In the north-east of the country, the Chobe and Linyanti reserves are renowned for their predators and large concentrations of game.

The untamed landscapes of Botswana leave little to the adventurous imagination.

Overall, Botswana has a semi-arid climate. The country witnesses extended spells of hot weather and a rainy season during the summer months (November to March). The rainfall tends to be erratic, highly localised and is often followed by strong sunshine meaning much of the precipitation is lost through evapotranspiration before it penetrates the ground. After the sporadically rainy summers, the winter season (May to August) has invariably sunny days and surprisingly cold nights. The in-between periods - April/early May and September/October - still tend to be dry, but the days are cooler than in summer and the nights are warmer than in winter.
