    I'd like to get an idea what Botswana is really like, not just from a tourists perpective! I like to hear from people who lived and worked there. how's the situation in comparison with other african countries? is it safe?...

    I lived and worked in a place called Maun near the Okavango Delta for a year, and I can tell you that Botswana is a very dry, hot and undeveloped country.

    The roads to most places are still a bit primitive and most towns in the countryside are still being developed, though Gaborone is expanding very fast.

    The crime isn't really the issue, but it's harsh colonial past, which basically means that Botswana is very particular about letting people in to settle or work in their country, and foreigners are picked out easily.
