Botswana is one of Africa's most stable countries, having had democratic rule for over four decades. It has also become a popular tourist destination due to its great efforts in conservation and many nature preserves. The country is about 70% Christian, of which only about 5% are Catholic--although the Catholic Church is growing at a rapid rate.
If you have a sense of adventure and want to combine it with your desire to help support Catholic missions you might want to consider The Cathlolic Safaris Project. This is a great way to try something truly different and also help a Catholic mission as well. And it is something that you will certainly talk about for years.
About Catholic Safaris:
Catholic Safaris are safaris with a difference:
- Double purpose: Enjoying your safari you support the Catholic Mission in Botswana
- Your holidays become a missionary donation (without any additional effort or costs on your side)
One of the last remaining truly wild places in the whole of Africa with spectacular wildlife still abundant, Botswana has the largest elephant population on earth - more than 130.000. The great African mammals are still there to be admired, pondered, cherished & protected - Botswana is one of the last refuges for big herds.
