Getting to Know Botswana

Botswana is an African country located toward the southern tip of Africa. It’s bordered by Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa and shares very short borders with Zambia and Kazungula. It boasts one of the sparest populations in the world but ranks 47 th in the world for sheer area size. 79% of the population is indigenous to Botswana and are known as Tswana. Major minority ethnic groups include the Kalanga and the San. There are about 10,000 San who still live the hunter-gatherer lifestyle – you can find out more about them and their fascinating lives when you visit the Tsodilo Hills from Nxamaseri Island Lodge.
