Famous for its unspoiled nature reserves, Botswana is a country where you’ll really need a hire car and a 4x4 at that. Don’t worry over how you’re going to get it organised, what the quality will be like or how much you’ll have to pay, for we’ll sort all of that in a way you’ll be pleased with.

Botswana Mini Guide

Getting into Botswana
You have plenty of options with Air Botswana as well as South African Express. Fly in from both of Johannesburg’s airports or Cape Town and once there, follow the airport road south to the A1 which bisects the city.

Getting Around the Country
It’s a big country so many people choose to take domestic flights but driving isn’t out of the question and you’ll get to meet many of the locals who’ll greet you with a welcoming smile. Most roads don’t need a 4 x 4 unless you’re thinking of traversing the reserves.

Hotels in Botswana
The hotels are functional in around the cities and towns and cost around R500 a night. Outside the cities, you’ll find it’s mainly luxury game lodges where you can expect to pay up to R2000 a night.

Safety
Botswana is one of the wealthier and safer countries in Southern Africa but you’ll still need to exercise caution, especially at night or in secluded areas.

What Should I see in Botswana?
  • The Okavango Delta. One of the world’s most unique game reserves, the delta doesn’t flow into a lake or sea, just dries up, but there are tens of thousands of animals there to enjoy it.
  • Victoria Falls. Despite being in Zimbabwe, they’re accessible from Botswana. Stay in Chobe National Park for easy access.
  • Northern Tuli Reserve. Not just an animal sanctuary but a place where the culture of northern Botswana is also preserved.
  • Gaborone. The capital city and a modern and pleasant one it is too, if a little sprawling. There’s good shopping as well as better quality restaurants.
