Botswana Overview

What is the best thing to do in Botswana?
Abundant wildlife including big cats, small, ultra-luxurious lodges and diverse landscapes make Botswana one of Africa’s premier safari destinations. Unique activities including exploring the waterways of the Okavango Delta by mokoro (dugout canoe), walking with bushmen in the Kalahari Desert, and exciting 4WD safaris are all possible.

What is the Climate in Botswana?
During the winter months of May-August days are dry and sunny with average temperatures of 25°C. Mornings and evenings can be very cold.

A landlocked country, Botswana is surrounded by a number of other safari destinations. Botswana can easily be combined with Victoria Falls, the stunning sand dunes of Namibia, cosmopolitan Cape Town or even a beautiful beach resort in Mauritius or Mozambique.
