Botswana, characterised by deep red sunsets, hot Kalahari landscapes and lush delta, draws adventurers from across the globe with its sense of untouched beauty. This is a country that entices everyone that visits. One of the most stable and economically successful African countries, it is landlocked and bordered by Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia and is 70% Kalahari desert. It also boasts the impressive Okavango Delta, and the largest salt pans in the world. With the most beautiful sunsets and the clearest starry nights, this country makes both sundowners and stargazing surreal experiences.
As a volunteer in Botswana, you will find that the people are welcoming and friendly and a mix of cultures and traditions makes visiting a colourful experience. The diversity of wildlife found on our Limpopo Lipadi Game Reserve volunteer programme is similar to that of reserves and national parks across the rest of Botswana and in its neighbouring countries. There is a feeling of serenity that surrounds the wilderness in Botswana and it has the ability, particularly as you venture out of clusters of towns, to make you feel as if you are the only person on earth.
