Peak season:

Peak tourism season in Botswana runs from July through October, which is when the country receives little rain, making safaris the number one activity. If you plan on visiting Botswana during the peak season, ensure that you book your flight tickets and accommodation well in advance to avoid the risk of overpaying for late bookings.

Off season:

Botswana’s off tourism season, which runs from January through March, might be one of the best times to book a cheap flight since the rains and increased humidity thin out the crowds. Traveling to Botswana during the off-season also means that flight prices and accommodation rates might be lower than they are during the peak season.

It has the extraordinary wildlife, it has the endless miles of Kalahari Desert, and it has all the appeal one wants to see in a world-class safari destination. Botswana might be just a hop, skip, and a jump away from South Africa, but it’s just far enough to make you feel like you’ve escaped from home soil. With all its stunning scenery and authentic African culture on display, Botswana might well be where you’ll end up wanting to stay!

How long is the flight to Botswana?

Johannesburg to Gaborone     55 minutes
Durban to Gaborone               1 hour, 20 minutes
Cape Town to Gaborone         2 hours

Which airlines operate flights to Botswana?

Ethiopian Airlines, Air Botswana, and South African Airways are three of the major airlines operating cheap flights to and from Botswana. You may find that one airline offers you more onboard comfort while another might be more suitable to your budgeting needs. Go ahead and compare the different deals on offer from various airlines and be sure to check out variable flight dates to help you find the cheapest deal on flights to and from Botswana.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

Upon arrival at Gaborone International Airport, you can take a taxi to the city center. Using a taxi is usually the fastest and easiest way of commuting between the airport and the city center. Since there isn’t a wide variety of public transport available at the airport, taking a private taxi or making use of a shuttle service (if your hotel of choice offers this service) are two of your best options to get to Gaborone city from the airport.

What is good to know if travelling to Botswana?

  • Gaborone’s National Museum and Art Gallery is a must-see while you’re visiting Botswana’s capital. The museum showcases a range of traditional arts and crafts and is accessible without an entrance fee.
  • For a great day trip, why not consider visiting the Livingstone Cave? The cave – also called the Kobokwe Cave – dates back to King Kgosi Sechele’s era and holds great cultural importance to the local tribes.
  • No visit to Botswana would be complete without a good and proper safari, but keep in mind that while you’re in Botswana, you can also opt in for a water safari. These boat tours trail down the Chobe River and are renowned for the elephant and hippo sightseeing opportunities they offer.
  • Tourists visit Botswana for a myriad of reasons, but for something different, try taking a guided canoe trip down the Okavango Delta. While you’re paddling, you’ll be able to get some truly breathtaking views of the area and the indigenous wildlife.
