Get a preview of the African country at home with Botswana Tourism’s new online program
Six different digital modules cover the landlocked country’s various regions (as well as practical travel tips), but the two-minute introduction alone will give you the itch to travel. Sitting just north of South Africa, with a flat landscape that consists of 70% desert, Botswana is one of the world’s most sparsely populated countries. Animals abound though, and footage of its dramatic landscape and splendid wildlife are interspersed with written descriptors like “exciting,” “intimate,” and “rare,” set to rhythmic music. By the end, you can do just as the final slide suggests: imagine yourself here. Consider the Botswana Tourism board’s job done.
