TIPS FOR TRAVELING BOTSWANA

CURRENCY   Pula (PUY) is the local currency. Most facilities accept US dollars, Pound sterling, Rand and Euro. Most credit cards are accepted in shops, petrol stations and restaurants.

CLIMATE   Much of Botswana has a subtropical climate with little rainfall. Winter begins in April and ends in August and temperatures range from 2˚C – 25˚C. November till March is summer season with heavy rains falling in about January to February. Generally temperatures range anywhere between 26˚C – 38˚C

WHAT TO PACK   If your safari is in winter, you will need a thick fleece or jacket for those early morning and evening game drives. You may want to consider gloves and a beanie too. Summer can be exceedingly hot, pack shorts, t-shirts, and if you burn easily, a long shirt is recommended. Make sure to include sunscreen as well as lightweight long-sleeved clothing for protection against mosquitoes at night and in the early morning. Don’t forget your costume as most lodges have swimming pools.

PEAK HOLIDAY SEASON   April through to October are the best months to visit Botswana. The weather is great and game viewing is exceptional. Wildlife come out of hiding and congregate around watering holes.
