Botswana is a paradise for the claustrophobic. No matter which region you decide to tackle, you can expect long stretches of vast, three-hundred-and-sixty degree open space, depending in your location, you can go for days without any significant towns and the rarest of all: a truly blue sky in every direction without a trace of pollution. Whether it is Makgadikgadi Pans, the Tuli area, scrub brush, or even seas of sand-dunes, nature on a scale most people can barely imagine is what awaits in Botswana, and as such for the touring cyclist all this space comes with a catch: you have to be totally self-contained to bike here.
