Stunning Beauty and Unimaginable Wilderness
Wild | Exclusive | Abundance
Landlocked Botswana lies at the heart of Southern Africa and is undoubtedly one of the great safari destinations in Africa. The land of the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari Desert is home to some of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth. Wild Africa at its best.
Botswana is known as an exclusive and expensive safari destination, which on the whole is true. Unless you are prepared to self-drive and camp (only recommended for experienced Africa travellers), or join a group and camp, it is hard to visit Botswana on a ‘budget’. However, if you are looking to immerse yourself in the natural world, there are few places that can compete.
Prices vary considerably due to the season of travel. July to October is generally considered high season, with April to June and November as the shoulder season, and December to March as the low/green season. Typically, a tailor-made 10 day safari, not including international flights, may start at around Eur 5000 per person.
Botswana is a stable, multi-party democracy with a visionary government that has set aside over 40% of the country for wildlife. While diamond mining has fuelled much of the country’s expansion, tourism has become Botswana’s second-largest industry.
Botswana is two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)/Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Its currency is the Pula (BWP) and the official language is English, with Setswana being the most widely spoken.
