Travel to Botswana
Have a unique safari trip in unspoilt Botswana
Find a trip to Botswana – Big game, big game and big game
Conveniently sandwiched between South Africa, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe lies Botswana. The Botswana parks such as; Chobe, the Okavango Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve all open the doors to unique, magnificent safaris. Botswana is especially known for its concentration of the big game – i.a. with one of the world’s largest concentrations of elephants – a population of as many as 120,000.
Experience breathtaking Victoria Falls
On the border between Botswana and Zambia, we find the breathtaking, almost majestic, waterfall – Victoria Falls – which is also on the list of the seven wonders of the world. On all Tourist trips we visit Victoria Falls, where it is also possible for a hiking safari in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, which is located on the Zambia side of the waterfall.
According to computerannals, Botswana is not a country that many tourists have heard of – and that makes the country a bit of a gem. Botswana is located in the southern part of Africa sandwiched between South Africa , Namibia , Zambia and Zimbabwe. The country’s population is only two million, and this is despite the fact that the country’s area is ten times as large as Denmark’s.
Travel to Botswana often includes a safari trip where you can get up close and personal with the African animal population. For example, visit Chobe National Park, which has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa – including one of the world’s largest elephant populations. Traveling to Botswana with Tourist Travel is an experience not found elsewhere.
Climate and weather in Botswana
In Botswana it is hot all year round and it is therefore difficult to talk about decided seasons. If you want the most comfortable temperature on trips to Botswana, then we would recommend you to leave between April and August. Here the temperatures are max. 20-25 degrees. September to March is the hottest period in Botswana. Here the temperature is a maximum of 25-35 degrees.
In terms of rainfall, it varies incredibly much, depending on when you travel to Botswana. Most of the rain falls in December and January by about 82-94 mm. If, on the other hand, we look at the European summer months, June to August, then we are all the way down to 4-2 mm. in average. So there is a good chance to avoid precipitation on trips to Botswana.
You must experience this in Botswana
Safari and Chobe National Park
If you are traveling to Botswana, do not deceive yourself for a safari trip in Chobe National Park, located in the north of the country. Here you can experience a completely unique wildlife with both elephants, lions, buffaloes, hippos and more.
In the national park you will find one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa, including an elephant population of over 120,000 elephants. Chobe National Park is only the third largest in Botswana, but it is in turn the national park with the greatest variety.
The park is often a regular part of Botswana travel when traveling with us. Here you will be accommodated near the Chobe River and have the opportunity to experience river cruises and safaris in the national park, where you get very close to the African wildlife.
The Okavango Delta is one of Africa’s seven natural wonders and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is said that approximately 200,000 animals visit the area each year and it is therefore an obvious destination when traveling to Botswana.
The Okavango Delta is a natural area created by the Okavang River and is over 15,000 km2. The area is covered by countless lake areas, canals and lagoons. It provides a beautiful, varied landscape with savannas, hills and wetlands that you can experience on trips to Botswana.
The Okavango Delta is said to be one of the best safari destinations with its unique scenery and wildlife. When traveling to Botswana, do not deceive yourself for a visit to this natural wonder.
Boat trip in Mokoro
A mokoro is a traditional canoe that can be used to experience the wildlife from the water side on trips to Botswana. If you visit Okavango Delta with us, the last part of the trip will take place in a mokoro, which will be used to reach the camp, which is out in the water.
A boat trip in a mokoro provides a completely different experience of wildlife, where you glide calmly on the surface of the river and just past hippos and crocodiles. At the same time, it gives you a fantastic insight into how the water systems twist in the wetlands.
On your Botswana trip, a boat trip in a traditional mokoro is almost a must. Here you are allowed to feel and experience the culture that the natives have perpetuated and cherished for years. The mokoro is controlled by a long stick that strikes the bottom of the river, pushing the mokoro forward.
Cities to experience in Botswana
Kasane is a small town in Botswana, located close to the “four corners” of Africa, where Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe almost meet. Chobe National Park is located in Kasane and all Botswana trips should go here.
When you go on a safari and experience one of Africa’s largest concentrations of wildlife, it happens here. Among other things, you can get up close and personal with one of Botswana’s most breathtaking experiences, which is an elephant population of over 120,000 elephants.
Maun is the fifth largest city in Botswana and is the country’s largest tourist center for travel to Botswana. This is because it is the gateway to the stunning Okavango Delta Nature Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Maun is the largest city near the natural area, and many therefore pass through on their Botswana travels. In the Okavango Delta you can experience an absolutely stunning wetland and wildlife that is very different from the Chobe National Park.
Gaborone is the capital of Botswana, and thrives like other major cities around the world. Here are universities, shops, cafes and more. Gaborone is a great base for exploring Botswana.
You will experience a wildlife that is hard to keep up with. In the city you can also visit exciting museums and galleries that display relics from the past. These objects tell tales and have had historical significance for this part of Africa.
