Travel in Botswana

Botswana Travel Highlights

Okavango Delta

Botswana's finest tourist area has a unique ecology and plenty of wildlife and bird species, which can be viewed at close range from a mokoro or walking safari.


Arts and crafts

With a history of tribal culture, there is a world-famous art and craft tradition.

Central Kalahari Game Reserve

Most typical of the semi-desert conditions, which dominate most of Botswana, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve also shows a wide variety of game in their natural setting.

Makgadikgadi

As the last remnants of a lake which was once the largest in Africa, the various salt pans of this area, dotted with one-time islands and ancient baobab trees, are a reminder of how transient environments and the life that depends on them can be.

Tuli Block

A region which is close to the capital but often neglected on tourist itineraries, the Tuli Block is a fascinating study in geology and ecology as well as one of the prime areas for the mineral wealth of the country.

Kalahari Gemsbok National Park

Wild and remote -and difficult to access except for the well equipped -this is an excellent location for those who seek a true wilderness area.

Gaborone

One of Africa's newest capital cities, this is a good introduction to the country which has the highest growth rate of any other economy in the region.

Birding

Botswana not only offers a countless number of migratory and resident species, but also boasts a bewildering array of raptors and other spectacular bird species.

Chobe

A superlative wildlife reserve with one of the largest elephant populations in Africa, Chobe is also blessed with tropical vegetation and greater rainfall than usually found in this dry country.

Cultural history

Botswana not only preserves its local traditions, but has carefully protected its heritage of ancient human culture from the Stone Age artifacts of the salt pan areas up to the wealth of San rock art found across the country.
