Botswana/Zambia

The Republic of Botswana is a landlocked nation in Southern Africa dominated in geographical terms by the Kalahari Desert – a sand-filled basin averaging 3,600 feet above sea level. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west, Zambia to the north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast. About two-thirds of Botswana lies within the Tropics and is bisected by the Tropic of Capricorn. Although Botswana has no mountain ranges to speak of, the almost uniformly flat landscape is punctuated occasionally by low hills, especially along the southeastern boundary and in the far northwest. Botswana’s highest point is about 4,900 feet.

Zambia borders Botswana and one can very easily travel overland between these two countries – combine these two great destinations to maximize your diverse African experience. Zambia the land of Thunder – offering the most beautiful Victoria Falls where you experience the flight of the angels, enjoy elephant back rides, river rafting and encounters of walking with lions.
