Botswana at a Glance

With many enticing qualities, Botswana is probably best known for its incredible safaris in the Okavango Delta region and the Moremi Game Reserve, in particular. Not only does it have thriving local wildlife that visitors are invited to experience up close, but also has a wonderful selection of eco-friendly camps and lodges offering exciting activities and luxurious accommodations. A stable country with a long-standing democratic government and positive human rights record, Botswana is a safe destination for travellers. It’s worth keeping in mind that traditional, rural communities still have conservative attitudes towards public displays of affection. It applies to couples of any orientation – it’s best to be respectful towards this. In terms of the best time to visit, May through October is peak season when the weather is dry and warm during the day (22°C to 35°C), but nights tend to be chilly. November through April is the green season – nature is the most thriving during this time, but you should expect an odd shower here and there.
