Popular book series #1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith has been adapted for television and is currently being showcased on HBO. The new series, which premiered on March 29, 2009, was filmed entirely on location in Botswana. To enable viewers to experience the beauty of Botswana for themselves and to elevate consumer awareness of Botswana, African Portfolio has joined forces with the Botswana Tourism Board to provide an exclusive nine day Botswana safari.

"We are pleased to offer this exclusive package that gives families and friends a truly unique Botswana vacation experience," explains Diane Ebzery Lobel, founder of African Portfolio. "It is a truly affordable safari as one in six or two in twelve guests stay free of charge - a savings of $7200 per person. This wonderful package includes a visit to the Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, game viewing in the Savuti/Linyanti confluence, as well as the Okavago Delta, two of the most renowned game viewing areas of Africa."

Ebzery Lobel describes the package as an exciting flying safari adventure that takes guests to small, intimate camps in isolated and scenic wilderness areas, and features game drives in specially modified 4x4 safari vehicles. "Another great aspect of the package are the nature walks into areas off the beaten track and boat or mokoro rides through the delta."

"Botswana is an excellent African safari adventure for both seasoned and beginner travelers," Ebzery Lobel explains. "Botswana is one of the few unspoiled wilderness areas in Africa, with vast game reserves where some of the largest herds in southern Africa roam free and wild. In addition, visitors will experience some of the most spectacular and varied bird life. The magnificent wildlife isn't the only reason to visit Botswana; the people of this country will also extend a warm welcome to you."

Anyone interested in finding out more about this limited time special on an affordable and amazing Botswana safari adventure is encouraged to contact African Portfolio at 1-800-700-3677 for more details.
