The folks over at Lonely Planet are kind of a big deal in the travel world, their recommendations determining where millions of visitors to flock to for their holidays.
Now they’ve released their ‘Best in Travel 2016’ list, one that “highlights not the places travelers are headed to next year, but the places our team determined they should visit”.
That’s according to Tom Hall, Lonely Planet’s editorial director, who is part of the team responsible for picking our northerly neighbours Botswana as their number one destination. Here’s CNN:
Next year’s must-visit country is Botswana, which the team at Lonely Planet calls “wild Africa at its best.”
Botswana has “some of the greatest wildlife spectacles on Earth,” from elephants and antelopes, to big cats and African wild dogs.
Also recommended are the Okavango Delta and Kalahari Desert, both “iconic African landscapes and vast stretches of wilderness.”
That list in full then:
