Travel Tips

Travelling cheaply in Botswana isn't impossible, but if you can't afford a flight into the Okavango, a day or two at Moremi Game Reserve or Chobe National Park, or a 4WD trip through the Kalahari, you may want to think twice before visiting. Safari lodges - especially those in the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park - are for the most part exclusive haunts of the wealthy, and you'll rarely find anything for less than US$300 for a double. Hotels, camping, car hire, domestic air flights, meals, alcohol and self-catering prices are comparable to those in Europe, North America and Australasia, and although buses and trains are quite economical (US$1 per hour of journey time), they won't take you to the most interesting parts of the country.
