Botswana Safari Information and Safaris in Botswana
 

Botswana
Botswana is Southern Africa's largest and authentic wilderness and the most sought after safari destination in Africa.  With only 1.4 million inhabitants, and a little larger than France, the country spread over an area of approximately 580000 square  kilometers.
This is a land of great contrasts. More than 70% of the country is covered by the vast and waterless Kalahari Desert, while to the north-west the Okavango River, born in Angola where  it is known as "Kavango", flows East into the arid sands of the Kalahari Desert, spreading into a myriad of about 15000 square kilometers of crystal clear water channels, rivers and lagoons, before it disappears beneath the ardent sands of the desert and creating what is known as the World's last greatest wilderness, the Okavango Delta.
GENERAL INFORMATION
Summers are hot to very hot, with temperatures sometimes exceeding 38 C. Winter daytime temperatures are normally warm, but dropping to an extreme of about 7 C during the night. The rainy season extends from November to April

CREDIT CARDS
Visa and MasterCard are usually accepted throughout Botswana but American Express and Diners Club are often not accepted.

CURRENCY
Botswana banks will only accept US Dollars, Pound Sterling, Euro and South African Rand cash.  Therefore, any cash payments to camps for curios, or gratuities to guides or staff, need to be in one of these currencies.  Travellers' cheques in any of the above currencies are also acceptable.

 DUTY FREE

There is no duty free shopping available at Johannesburg International Airport on a flight to Botswana.  Please make sure any duty free purchases of camera film, alcohol, etc. are made before arriving in southern Africa.

EXCESS BAGGAGE
The most common mode of transport in Botswana is by light aircraft and usually on a seat-in-plane shared basis. The Luggage Restriction is 20 Kgs. per person on soft bags.
If you have to bring more baggage with you, we can "sell" you and your party an extra seat on most safaris. This will allow you to bring an additional 70 kg (154 lbs). The cost of this extra seat varies - depending on your safari - but should cost in the region of US$140 per flight
On arrival in either Maun or Kasane, you also have the option of sending your excess baggage ahead at an additional cost of US$100 per person.  If the safari begins in Maun, the excess baggage will be forwarded to Kasane and stored.  If starting in Kasane, the excess baggage will be forwarded to Maun for storage.  You can then collect this excess baggage at the end of your Botswana safari.  We would prefer to know in advance if this service will be needed so that arrangements can be made and the transfer can be handled smoothly.

LAUNDRY
The camp staff will not wash underwear, due to prevailing local traditions in the country.

POWER

All our camps are situated in remote areas and we have to generate our own electricity. We do so in a number of ways. Each camp has a generator that runs for about 6 hours per day (3 hours in the morning and 3 in the afternoon when guests are out on activities). These generators then charge batteries located at each tented room, which provide good 12v lights all night (if used sensibly).

There are no 220v or 110v power points in camp. If you need to have your video battery re-charged we can do so while you are out on an activity. Therefore, please bring a spare battery for use while the other is being charged. These systems are simple but perfectly functional.
Electrical plug outlets are not available in the Wilderness Safaris camp tented rooms and therefore it is not possible to use such appliances such as hairdryers or electric shavers during your stay there.
