5.0 étoiles sur 5 Knowledgeable and Entertaining 19 septembre 2007
Par Lynn M. Brown - Publié sur
We have recently returned from Botswana and had the very good fortune of spending three days in the Kalahari with Michael Main. He is extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and most importantly very well informed - just as he is in his book about the culture in Botswana.

For those travelers who are going to Botswana and are interested in more than just seeing the "Big Five" this book is for you. After all, the people are just as much, if not more, a part of the travel experience and Michael Main knows the people of Botswana.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Packed full of facts 27 février 2008

Mike Main provides a complete snapshot of the people and cultures of Botswana. It is not the usual tourist guidebook of only places to visit. This small book packs a large amount of essential information for a traveler who wishes to understand the people, their history and avoid embarrassing moments. I would highly recommend this book as an essential read before a visit to Botswana. Its small size means that you can also take it with you!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 great intro for a great culture 10 mars 2013

I bought this guide before going on Safari in Botswana. Although I wasn't going to be spending time in any towns or villages, I always like to know a bit about the culture of the people I will be visiting. This book was fantastic! It not only gave a great history of the country, but it offered simple phrases in the native language. I used a few phrases throughout my stay and loved the happy reaction of the locals I was speaking with both at the airport and and camp.

Having traveled extensively, I never thought about learning the cultural intricacies of a country before visiting. The concept seems to obvious, but I've never seen a book like this. I'm going to Botswana in a few months am so glad to happen upon the terrific book. Concise, detailed and accessible. Will always read Culture Smart guides before all future travel.

I was looking for a book that shared customs and culture, and this book is it! I read the whole thing in 24 hours (yes, I'm getting ready to go to Botswana). But I do wonder about the October 2010 advertised publishing date. The book shows the copyright as 2007, and doesn't mention any update for 2010. So my question is, now that we are in 2014, does that mean this book is coming from a perspective that is 7 years old?? If it is, why the advertised 2010 date? What is its significance?
