Wide selection of Budget Botswana Tours and Adventure Tours. Botswana is situated in Southern Africa and landlocked by South Africa, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. It covers 600 370 square kilometres and is home to only two million people, making it one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world.

Why go on a budget Botswana Tour?

Botswana’s capital is Gaborone, with Maun and Kasane the gateways to the wildlife. Botswana is known for its remote and unexplored national parks and wildlife areas, to the green lush riverbanks and canals of the Okavango Delta.

The Chobe National Park covers 11 700 square kilometres of flora and fauna, which can easily be accessed from Kasane. The Park is home to the ‘Big 5’ and especially known for the Chobe River Sunset Cruise which offers extraordinary game viewing opportunities.

Another well-known National Park is the Moremi National Park which was voted in 2008 as the ‘Best Game Reserve in Africa’ by the African Travel and Tourism Organisation. The area is situated in the central and eastern regions of the Okavango Delta, including the Moremi Tongue and chief’s island, boasting one of the most wonderful and varied ecosystems of the African continent.

Botswana also has the largest inland delta in the world, the Okavango, which leads into the barren sand areas of the Kalahari Desert. The Delta is fed by the Okavango River which comes all the way from the Angolan Highlands. While cruising through the calm waterways of the Delta on a local dug out canoe (mokoro) from wetland to dryland, look out for the african bush elephant, african buffalo, hippopotamus, blue wildebeest, giraffe, nile crocodile, lion, cheetah, leopard, black rhinoceros, white rhinoceros and so much more.

When is the best time to go on a Botswana Safari Tour?

Dry season – May to October – Winter:

If you visit during these months you will experience a very dry climate with low humidity. The great attribute about visiting this time of year is that the animals congregate around the waterholes giving you plenty of time to take great photographs and quietly enjoy the tranquility of the scene.

May – Cool temperatures of about 10°C in the mornings warming to 28°C in the afternoon.

June, July and August – Very cold on early morning game drives, so pack your thermals. Expect the thermometer to drop to 6°C in the morning and below freezing at night, but you can enjoy warmer temperatures of about 25°C in the afternoons when you can laze by the pool at your accommodation.

September and October – Now is when the heat sets in and wonderfully hot temperatures of about 35°C can be expected.

Wet season – November to April – Summer:

November and December – You can expect cooler temperatures as clouds fill the atmosphere and bring on late afternoon showers. December mornings are mild at 20°C with hot temperatures of 34°C in the afternoons. This is a good time of the year for comfortable game safaris.

January and February – Bring out your waterproof jackets and trousers for torrential downpours that can continue for days. It is not cold, but humidity is high at 50-80%.

March and April – The rain lessens and the temperature cools again. This continues through to April with balmy, clear weather and temperatures of 30°C in the day.
