Botswana Luxury Holidays
Landlocked and covered mostly by arid Kalahari desert, it's one of Mother Nature's most brilliant paradoxes that sees Botswana play host to the remarkable phenomenon of the Okavango delta, a wondrous wetland that receives its waters from rainfall over 1,000 kilometres away and sustains a huge diversity of flora and fauna.
In the north-east, the Chobe and Linyanti Reserves are renowned for their predators and large concentrations of game. Tourism has been designed very deliberately as high quality, low volume, in order to create a sustainable industry while preserving the environment. The result; an exceptional safari experience.
Time difference: GMT +2 hours
Flight duration: 15 hours 5 minutes (with flight change)
Currency: Botswana Pula (South African Rand and US dollar are also accepted)
British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and South African Airways fly direct from London Heathrow to Johannesburg, where a charter carrier will connect to Gaborone or Maun.
The timing of the floods and the rainy season vary from year to year but plan to travel in the dry months of May to October for best game viewing and to experience wetlands in the Okavango.
