Picturesque Botswana is a visual memento of one of Africa's most scenically diverse countries. Photographs of the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta whose waterways fan out into the desiccated Kalahari, and the fertile floodplains of the nearby Linyanti-Chobe system are contrasted with the stark beauty of the arid wilderness that is the rest of the country: the remote Tsodillo Hills whose cliff faces are adorned with San rock paintings dating back thousands of years; the salt-encrusted pans of Makgadikgadi; the rugged but striking countryside of the Tuli Block; and the wide open expanse of the Kalahari. In this land of contrast, a dazzling array of wildlife, both animals and birds, thrive in the game-rich sanctuaries that have made Botswana a top tourist destination for decades.
Picturesque Botswana is part of the Picturesque series of small, full-colour souvenir books. Other titles in the series include Cape Town, Garden Route, Durban & Surrounds, Drakensberg, Winelands, South Africa, Swakopmund, Namibia, Mozambique and Remembering Robben Island.
