Travel to Botswana
Botswana is not just another African country. Its lavish wildlife sanctuaries are recognized as one of the best in the world and offer a unique chance for visitors to be at one with nature. One of Africa’s most stable countries, Botswana has transformed itself from one of the poorest countries on earth to a middle-income nation in less than three decades. The country boasts an abundance of wildlife; during my last visit, I saw elephants, lions, buffalo and giraffes as well as many antelopes and smaller mammals.
Safari in Botswana
Botswana is home to some of the most diverse wildlife sanctuaries on earth. There are many reasons to make Botswana your destination, but one of the biggest draws is the wide range of wildlife you can expect to see while visiting.
- The Big Five: If you’re looking for a safari experience, then look no further than Botswana! This country offers some of the best Big Five game viewing in Africa and has been named as number one by several publications as well. The most sought after species include lions, leopards, elephants and rhinos; however, there are many other species that will delight you during your trip such as zebras and giraffes just to name a few.*
- 250+ Species: In addition to these iconic creatures which are found throughout Africa’s plains regions; this country holds over 250 different types of mammals (including an estimated 40 types not found anywhere else). You’ll also find an amazing array of birds—from vultures that circle overhead all day long looking for carcasses on which they can feed themselves back down through waterfowls from around world such as flamingos or pelicans who prefer freshwater environments instead–and other animal life like reptiles like chameleons too!
Best time to visit
The best time to visit Botswana is from October to March, when the weather is cool and dry. The rainy season runs from April to September, but if you’re planning on seeing animals, there are some parks where you’ll be able to find them anyway (e.g., Chobe National Park). Avoid visiting during the winter (December through February), summer (June through August), or spring months (September through November). Although there are exceptions—like Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe—the rest of Africa generally experiences warm temperatures year-round. Additionally, during these warmer months, it can get quite hot in Botswana: daytime high temperatures can reach as high as 100 degrees Fahrenheit in places like Gaborone!
There are many accommodation options in Botswana. You can stay in Phalaborwa and find a hotel, guesthouse or motel that suits your needs. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, consider staying in a safari camp or lodge. These types of accommodations offer unique experiences such as bush walks and game drives, but they also provide privacy and luxury while on vacation.
Depending on where you stay during your trip to Botswana, there will be different activities offered at each location. For example:
- Hotels in cities like Gaborone have access to public transportation systems so guests can easily travel around the city without using their own vehicle; however they lack any type of outdoor activities since most people would prefer to use cars rather than buses
- A guesthouse outside of Gaborone may offer attractions such as hiking trails through nature reserves surrounding the town; however these may not be open every day due to weather conditions so make sure before booking!
Botswana is a beautiful country with so much to offer. From sun-drenched beaches to snowy mountain peaks, the landscape has something for everyone. There are also great restaurants and shopping opportunities in its capital city. Visitors can enjoy many activities like horseback riding, canoeing on Lake Malawi or visiting one of its many national parks.
