Flying Mission serves the people of Botswana from two locations: the capital Gaborone in the south, and Maun in the north. Flying Mission Care Ministries, Flying Mission Services, along with Flying Mission's Head office are all based in Gaborone. From Maun, Flying Mission Services operates an aircraft charter service.
Botswana is located in the southern part of Africa and shares a border with South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. About the size of France or Texas, it is a fairly flat and arid country with much of its area covered by the Kalahari Desert. Politically it is a very stable democracy. The country has a significant amount of mineral wealth including coal, gold, platinum, and diamonds which makes mining their largest source of income.
The country's infrastructure, including roads and airports, is all fairly modern and Botswana boasts the lowest rate of governmental corruption in Africa. Although it also holds the grim position of having one of the highest rate of HIV/AIDS infection in the world, Botswana is actively striving toward an infection free future and offers free anti-retroviral medication to all citizens.
Botwsana has a relatively high standard of living and offers its citizens free healthcare and essentially free education through university. It is rich with wildlife and has been proactive with its land management; almost 40% of the land has been set aside for conservation. There is a low volume, high cost tourism policy in place.
