Botswana Safari- the Haven of Wildlife Sanctuaries

Vast lands... wildlife... well, anyone may have those two in Africa but not definitely like the experience that may be had from Botswana Safaris. This vast piece of land is only one of the few where wildlife need not compete for land and resources with man. The land area is as large as France yet the population counts only to mere 1.6 million people. As an outcome, wildlife has increased in great number that the place becomes a sanctuary for the finest games in all Africa.
