Promoting Travel Excellence and Integrity!
Botswana is located in the heart of southern Africa. Botswana has enjoyed
remarkable economic growth since independence. From being one of the
poorest countries, Botswana has emerged as one the fastest growing
economies in the world. Its natural beauty lies in its unspoiled wilderness;
some of the largest wildlife herds left in the world; and cultural diversity.

Tourism accounts for about 40% of the employment opportunities in Botswana.
Among the major tourist attractions are two of the world’s most fragile
environments covering a great portion of Botswana – Kalahari Desert with its
vast golden sands and eerie outlying ‘pan’ depressions; and Okavango Delta -
said to be the largest inland delta in the world and a birding paradise in a vast
maze of islands and channels, a small part of which has been set aside as the
elephant population in the world; and the Tuli Block with its rugged terrain.  

Nearby, Chobe River, Linyanti Wetlands, and Savuti Channel ecosystem draw
brilliant birds, strong herds of elephant, and large numbers of antelope, from
the desert-adapted Oryx to wetlands-loving lechwe.

Hunting and gathering is practised by all tribesmen but is guided by very strict
traditional conservation strategies. This cultural heritage has enabled
Botswana to preserve vast and diverse species of wildlife and natural
resources. At least 17% of Botswana is reserved as parks, which facilitates the
protection of the fragile natural environment.

The seasons in Botswana are somewhat irregular. Rains generally start in
October or November, and can persist until March or April. There may be long
dry spells within that time. Rain tends to fall in short, often violent
thundershowers, and generally the greatest amount falls in December, January
and February.

The best time to visit Botswana is April to October when the days are sunny and
not too hot. Evening temperatures drop sharply. During the summer months
temperatures can rise to over 40ºC and usually drop to around 25ºC at the night.

Botswana is a land of contrasts, where one can experience contrasting life
styles. Travel from the busy urban centres, to rural villages, and even to the
most remote life of the San people. Safaris, canoeing, boat cruises, hunting
and fishing adventures make it the ideal destination for most adventurers.
Botswana boasts an array of tourist facilities and premiere accommodations in
small, private camps.

Bateleur Tours and Travel can help you experience all of these wonderful
elements of nature.

News & Upcoming Highlights in Botswana

  • Botswana offers exceptional wildlife and game viewing all year round.

  • Birding season is from November – March when the Okavango Delta is home to the
    many migratory birds during their breeding season.

  • Botanical season is from December - May when the vegetation is lush and green, and
    also when most plants are in flower.

  • Photography is excellent year-round, but depending on what your main interests are,
    note that the scenery is most spectacular from September - February during the first
