Expert Tips

Martyn

Destination Manager

“Make sure you visit Makgadikgadi Pan between December and March for the annual zebra migration. It’s the only time you’ll see such a huge gathering of zebras and wildebeest, and the accompanying predators that follow.”

Christie

Destination Executive

“Pack warm clothes that you can layer. As hot as Botswana can get, some parts can get extremely cold, particularly in the mornings. Believe it or not, you might want to pack gloves.”

Nick

Senior Destination Manager

“Visit the Tsodilo Hills for a fascinating look at historic wall art dated as far back as AD 700.”
