When it comes to travel needs and wants, everyone has their own likes and dislikes which means that the ultimate travel destination is different for everyone. Botswana might not be at the top of the list for everyone when it comes to tourist destinations but actually when you look into it this part of the world offers plenty for people to see and do. There is no denying that Botswana is a stunning part of the world to visit & it really does offer a different pace of life; so if you’re wondering whether a Botswana safari trip is for you or not, let’s take a look at what this part of the world has to offer: 

When You Want to Travel 

One of the best things about Botswana is that it offers something different for every season that might choose to visit. It is worth investigating what the country is like throughout the year so you can choose when you want to visit and what is going to suit you best.  

January to April – There is plenty to see at this time of year but it is known as rainy season so you’ll definitely want to be suitably prepared before you travel. February and March are the highest rainfall months so you might want to avoid these if you’re not keen on rain, but that said it does give a different perspective to the country, so can still offer a great holiday if you do travel during these months.  

May to July – As a complete opposite, May usually signals the start of the dry season and so it can be a popular time of year to visit. The dry and warm season can be hot for many people, which is why they opt to visit during May and June as these still benefits from the coolness of the rainy season a few weeks before. 

August to October – This time of year continues to be popular, as it is still mostly dry. Depend on when you visit, you might be lucky enough to see elephants travelling to new locations as they head to find water. Be mindful that October is the hottest time of year to visit.  

November and December – The end of the year sees both hot weather and rain, so you’ll find plenty to see especially as it’s the time of year when lots of animals give birth to their new born.  

Where To Visit 

If you are heading to Botswana then you’ll be glad to know there are plenty of different areas to head to, so you can research what is available and whether there is something that suits you. Places like Okavango Delta and the Modem Game Reserve offer beautiful scenery as well as the chance to see some stunning creatures in their natural habit. If you’re feeling adventurous then some safari areas allow you to travel via canal and boat, ensuring that you get to see as much of the country as possible. If there are particular species of animal that you would like to see then do some research first and make sure that you visit a part of Botswana that is home to these 

Travelling to Botswana 

This part of the world isn’t on the top of the list for many tourism companies, so it is best to seek out a travel business that has experience in travelling here. That way you can be sure that you are getting the most up to date and accurate information regarding things like Visas, inoculations and even luggage for your travels.  

Once you are in the area things to consider how whether you are going to tip people while you are there & ensure that you have cash on to you to do so. Whilst tipping is not compulsory it is generally recommended that you do so – the travel company you book with can help when it comes to the area of Botswana you are travelling to and what is recommended.  

The truth is that a Botswana safari trip is suitable for anyone that wants to see the stunning part of the world. Just do your research in advance to ensure that you book a trip that is suitable for your needs, wants and budget.
