The town of Papalye in east Botswana has rich historical roots and offers a welcoming and safe environment to its visitors. The small town has numerous social centres, many with luxury facilities, friendly atmosphere, and definitely provide the perfect accommodation for a wonderful African getaway.
Visitors to the small town of Papalye and beautiful country of Botswana can choose from a variety of attractions including the famous Okavango. The Okavango which originates in the uplands of Angola to the north-west, flows into and then spreads over the sandy spaces of the Kalahari to form an immense and wondrous inland delta of lagoon and labyrinthine channel, palm-fringed island and fertile floodplain. A number of safari lodges and camps have been established in and around this watery wilderness. This wilderness and the nearby game-rich Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park reserves, offer the visitors the best of several worlds, appealing variously to the game-viewer and bird-watcher, the hunter and the sporting fisherman, the explorer of hidden places and the lover of Africa in its loveliest and least spoilt state.
Botswana's climate is semi-arid. Though it is hot and dry for much of the year, there is a rainy season, which runs through the summer months. Rainfall tends to be erratic, unpredictable and highly regional. Often a heavy downpour may occur in one area while 10 or 15 kilometres away there is no rain at all.
The heritage of Botswana is built around the San and Khoi people which where the earliest modern inhabitants of southern Africa. Another main feature of Botswana is the Kalahari Desert which stretches west of the eastern hard-veld, covering 84% of the country. The Kalahari extends far beyond Botswana's western borders, covering substantial parts of South Africa, Namibia and Angola
Papalye, Botswana offers a truly unique African experience untouched by the more destructive pressures of encroaching civilisation, presenting a wonderful wilderness for the enjoyment of all who seek to reach just that little bit further into Africa for a holiday of a lifetime.
