Botswana officially the Republic of Botswana  is a landlocked country in Southern Africa.

It is currently Africa’s oldest continuous democracy. Botswana is topographically flat, with up to 70 percent of its territory being the Kalahari Desert. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast.

Our visit to Botswana was in May 2007 and we stayed at the Muchenje Safari Lodge for 2 nights. This is on the western side of the Chobe National Park and adjoined the Namibia border. Hence, the amount of Botswana we were able to experience was very limited. Confined to the Border with Zimbabwe through to Western part of the Chobe National Park just south of the road crossing into Namibia.

We were fortunate to have a number of Safari’s covering the park including and an afternoon safari, evening safari, morning safari, and an all day safari. With these safaris, it allowed us to explore a far amount of the area from the Namibia border crossing through to Kasane – north of the main road.
