Both Botswana and its neighbour, Zimbabwe, form a common entity and a British heritage in Central Southern Africa, but there the resemblance ends. The Bechuana formed an alliance of sorts with the British to protect them from the Boers in the then-nearby Transvaal. Upon a peaceful transition to independence as Botswana, it has evolved into a democratic and peaceful country. Zimbabwe, formerly Rhodesia, is a failed state, although potentially, Zimbabwe could dominate tourism if governmental affairs were orderly. This map focuses on Botswana simply because that country is a beacon of orderly pleasantness in the continent; well run, routistacally well developed, with good infrastructure, and close to the game preserves of both South Africa and Zimbabwe. The map includes a large inset map of Gaborone, the capital, but most visitors fly into Maun, in the north, which is close to the country's greatest assets, the Okavango Delta, home of one of the greatest wildlife preserves on earth. Personally, I prefer the central Kalahari Desert area, because it is so unique, but wildlife viewing is the source of the country's top rating as a tourist destination. To the west is Namibia, another country that has evolved into a sensible independent country, and to the east and south is South Africa. One can enter Zimbabwe at Kazanula or at Plumtree, to visit Victoria Falls, one of the great physical attractions of Africa. The second side of our maps shows this country in great detail, and having lived in the country for several years, I can attest to its attractiveness. Inset maps of Harare, the capital, Bulawayo, Victoria Falls, and the Great Zimbabwe Ruins make this map essential for anyone visiting this country. A word of caution must be fiven here, in that the condition of many of the roads has deteriorated overtime, petrol is often unavailable, and basic foodstuffs are costly. The map has been printed on durable tear-resistant stone paper, and should outlast any visit. 

We can laminate this map, which will allow you to draw on it in whiteboard marker or apply map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.

To laminate this map we have taken the folded map and flattened it out before encapsulating it in high-quality 80-micron laminate, so please be aware that there will still be slight fold lines visible.
