The east of Botswana is not necessarily popular for hosting the tourist highlights of the country, however, on closer inspection, travellers will find some nice insider tips. The larger cities such as Francistown or Gaborone, are also not really the most exciting cities in Africa, but some nice spots can be found as well. Archaeologically, the east of Botswana has much to offer, including rock paintings and archaeological sites.
Geography and climate in Eastern Botswana
While most parts of Botswana are flat and rather unexciting, there are some scenic areas to the east of Botswana, most notably the Northern Tuli Game Reserve (Tuli Block).
As in the rest of Botswana, the climate of the East is characterized by pleasantly mild winters with almost no rain and warm to hot summers with heavy rainfall occuring ever now and then.
Flora and fauna in Eastern Botswana
The eastern part of Botswana is much more industrialized and urbanized and has a much higher population density than the rest of the country. Wildlife is less common here. In the parks of this region, however, there are a variety of wildlife species, for example the world's largest elephant population on private land.
