Botswana has one overriding appeal for tourists: its stunning wildlife. Every permutation of the African safari experience is possible in this country: a Botswana flight in a hot air balloon across endless miles of the Kalahari desert, the traditional jeeps-and-binoculars game-spotting in Chobe National Park or floating in a canoe on the Okavango Delta in the tracks left by the animals.

The sparsely-populated land-locked country in southern Africa is well-developed for tourism, despite only gaining independence (from Britain) in 1966. At that time, the country was one of the world’s poorest, but the subsequent discovery of diamonds, along with booming tourism, has boosted the economy immeasurably. Botswana nowadays is something of a high-end destination with luxury game lodges abounding for travellers wanting a civilised spot from which to enjoy a sundowner.

The southeastern corner of the country, in and around Gaborone, is where most people live and the point of arrival for all international flights to Botswana. However, the Kalahari Desert is located in the centre of the country and the Okavanago Delta in the north, so travel across the country is essential to get to the big sights. Sit back and enjoy the journey, the scenery on the way – flatlands, deserts and plains – will be spectacular.

Botswana climate

Botswana is hot all year round. The only relief is the cool, crisp nights between May and October. From April to October is the rainy season, and the country is best visited on the bookend months of those seasons.

Getting around Botswana

Domestic Botswana flights are available within the country; the national carrier Air Botswana has the largest scheduled network. Charter flights are also available to more remote destinations. Most charter flights originate from Maun.

There is one train service.

Buses are cheap but infrequent and often unsafe. The roads are poor throughout the country.

What is good to know if travelling to Botswana?

  • If you spend time in Gaborone, Botswana’s capital, don’t miss the National Museum and Art Gallery of Botswana. A small museum, with free entrance, its aim is to preserve traditional national art and it displays crafts and art of local cultures.
  • Near to Gaborone, and easily reached on a day trip, is the Livingstone Cave – also known as the Kobokwe Cave or Legaga la ga Kobokwe. The cave is said to be the spot where Livingstone persuaded the first chief of the town, King Kgosi Sechele I, to become Christian after they spent an unharmed night together in its supposedly haunted interior.
  • The reason most visitors come to Botswana is to go on safari. For a change from the normal driven vehicles, try a safari on water. You can travel down the Chobe River by boat, watching the wildlife on the shores and in the water. Look out for elephants drinking and hippos wallowing.
  • Also possible for water safaris, and a bit more sedate, is a mokoro ride in the Okavango Delta. This is a journey by canoe – traditionally wooden but nowadays more likely to be fibreglass – following the tracks made by big game in the delta. The canoe sits very low in the water, so be prepared to get wet, but it affords amazing views of the surrounding landscape and wildlife.
  • Learning a bit of setswana on your flight to Botswana will open up many experiences. Just some basic greetings will be appreciated immensely by the locals.
  • When is the best time to fly to Botswana?

    Peak Season: July to October is the peak season, when there are the most visitors, little rain and it is easiest to spot the wildlife. Off Season: January to March is low season, when there is often rain and the humidity can become uncomfortable. Shoulder Season: April to June and November to December have reasonable conditions and prices for accommodation and flights to Botswana will be lower than those at peak season. April and November are good months to visit for bird watchers.

  • Can I find cheaper flights to Botswana if I am willing to have stopovers?

    Yes, flights with stopovers are often cheaper than direct flights. Keep an eye out for flight deals to Botswana on Cheapflights that require 1 or 2 stops for potential cost savings.

  • What is the best airline to fly to Botswana?

    Gaborone Sir Seretse Khama Airport is currently the cheapest airport to fly to in Botswana. One-way flights to Gaborone Sir Seretse Khama Airport typically cost £78, while return flights cost around £68.

  • Where does the fastest flight to Botswana depart from?

  • Does Gaborone Sir Seretse Khama Airport have car hire?

    Yes. Those touching down at Gaborone Sir Seretse Khama Airport can take advantage of the car hire services offered upon their arrival.
