Yes, yes, yes. Botswana is one of the very few African countries where you may enjoy being totally free and save.

Yes, there is crime, but there is also a very efficient police service and Botswana believes in the rule of law.

Living standards are not up to European standards, but in all cities you will find all the amenities yo are used to.

Botswana is probably the safest country in Africa. The crime is low and it's clean.
