Africa from A-Z: Botswana

I do wonder what it would be like to live and work in a country such as Botswana whose population is the size of Bamako, the capital city in Mali where I recently lived (and plan on soon returning!).  The lady who writes this blog knows!  This one, too!  With the Kalahari Desert, Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta - there is a lot to explore!
 
Survival International is a not-for-profit that seeks to protect the rights of tribal people around the world - including those in Botswana being displaced by the pursuit of diamonds.   A PCV blog in Botswana.

Botswana has a stock market and this looks like a neat site to follow if you are interested in business in Africa.  There soon may be a railway cutting through Zimbabwe and Mozambique or Namibia.  Controversial sounding but exciting!  The American ambassador to Botswana sounds like a real gem!  She recently made a tour of the country and visited with local leaders and NGOs including Women Against Rape which sounds like a powerful organization.   

Anyone ever visited?  What's your favorite thing about Botswana?
