GETTING THERE

Botswana’s capital, Gaborone, hosts the country’s major airport, Sir Seretse Khama International Airport, however volunteers joining our projects in the Tuli Game Reserve will access the country from South Africa, usually flying into Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport.

'The Land of the Giants' is how locals fondly describe Botswana. This is because her vast plains allow for elephants, giraffe and baobab trees to tower above the horizon. The country has enjoyed peace since its independence in 1966 and boasts a strong economy.

A land of sunshine and peace, the Republic of Botswana is a landlocked country famed for its wildlife, herds of elephants and the unparalleled Okavango Delta, which visitors regularly explore via traditional canoe. Such a remote location means visitors encounter a level of tranquility and solitude often not granted in busier African nations.

Botswana’s land is 40% wildlife reserves, which makes it the ultimate safari destination with many famous reserves at a visitor’s disposal, such as the famous Chobe National Park, which is highly acclaimed as one of Africa's top safari locations.
