One of Africa’s most fascinating and enigmatic wildlife destinations, Botswana is a spectacular place. With almost a third of the country dominated by the dauntingly dry Kalahari Desert and the rest covered in thick savannah and the floodplains of the Okavango Delta, the Botswana travel package can be an exciting mix of fascinating landscapes with something unique to experience around every corner.
How to Get There
The quickest and most reliable way to travel to Botswana would be to fly to OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa, or to Cape Town International Airport, and then embarking on a connecting flight to Maun Airport or Kasane Airport.
Those who are combining a trip to Botswana with a trip to the Victoria Falls can instead fly to Victoria Falls Airport or Livingstone Airport.
Best Time of the Year to Visit
Since it is primarily a safari destination, any time of the year is great for visiting Botswana. May through to September (the winter months) are ideal, as rain is minimal and the temperature is not overwhelmingly hot.
The Okavango floods between June and October, making some places a little more complicated to get to.
