Accessibility to Botswana
Although considered a long haul destination it is relatively easy getting to Botswana
as many international airlines fly into Gaborone, or nearby Johannesburg, and connect with the safari areas in the north. Getting around the remote wilderness areas of Botswana is mostly by small plane, but driving is also an option, although the roads are generally dusty and hard to drive, and suited for the more adventurous.
Botswana is known to be one of the most stable
countries in Africa, politically, economically and with regards to visitor security. Regular elections ensure a healthy democracy and sound economic management have ensured a country and a people that respect security and human values.
