Pristine African wilderness

A vast network of waterways, rambling open spaces and dense bush, we love Botswana for being one of Africa’s most spectacular untouched wildernesses.

A safari through Botswana’s scrub-covered savannahs fuses the beauty of nature with the awe-inspiring spectacle of wildlife at its most primitive. Take a walk on the wild side and venture through the variety of landscapes Botswana has to offer, including Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta to spy graceful mammals and astounding birdlife amid the Moremi Wildlife Reserve and the Khwai River floodplains. A photographer’s dream holiday, visit Botswana at any time of year to experience an African wonderland where vast grasslands are dotted by statuesque acacia trees and plays home to cheetahs, rhinos, elephants and giraffes.

Why not combine your adventure in Botswana with a visit to South Africa, featuring vibrant Cape Town, Cape Winelands and Kruger National Park and more opportunities to see the Big Five against a backdrop of stunning countryside.

Tipping

There is no set protocol for tipping in Botswana. How much you tip should depend on the service you receive. Staff at safari lodges and guides rely on tipping. We suggest you tip driver guides and trackers US $5 per person per day, while porters and hotel staff can be tipped US $1 per service they provide for you.

One Dollar approximately equals 10 Pulas. 

Health

Before travelling to Botswana, be sure to visit your GP at least eight weeks in advance for an assessment and advice on antimalarial tablets and other medicines. Before travelling ensure you are up to date with standard vaccinations including Hepatitis A and B.

Yellow Fever immunisation is not required unless you are arriving from an infected country.

Visa Information

British citizens do not need a visa to travel to Botswana for stays of up to 90 days. 

Currency

Take both cash and credit cards with you on holiday to Botswana. There are several main commercial banks that operate in Botswana as well as foreign exchange bureaux. Avoid changing cash at hotels and safari lodges as the rates that you will pay will be higher than major outlets. Most hotels, safari lodges and restaurants accept Visa and MasterCard.

How to get your currency

Botswana’s currency is the Pula and it is divided into 100 thebe (this means ‘shield’ in Setswana). The US Dollar, the Euro, the Pound and the South African Rand are mostly accepted here. There are ATMs in major towns and cities that will accept Visa and MasterCard.
