5th Edition, 2010
This is the fifth time that we have updated and re-issued our travel map of Botswana. Updating is necessary, not only to record new information but to keep the artwork compliant with current software. As computers become more refined, we are able to finesse maps more readily to make things more readable or to add new features.
We visited Botswana about two years ago, and I have fond memories of a Bushman encampment near Maun, dancing with an extremely short lady with an enormous bottom, of almost running out of petrol because the station at Ghazni was dry, and of a majestic male kudu antelope crashing out of the bush onto the roadway mere seconds before we were to cross that same patch of land. The animal leapt into the air and disappeared somewhere on the other side of the track. This all happened in an instant but is one of the reasons Africa is so enjoyable.
The other change to this map is that we have added Zimbabwe to the reverse side, to make the map more useful to users combining a trip to Botswana with a visit to ravaged Zimbabwe. We will continue to sell our map of Zimbabwe as a separate title.
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.
