Go Botswana Travel Guide 2017/18
Ever wanted to visit Botswana? The latest edition of our popular guide to Botswana will show you how to plan the holiday of a lifetime, whether you just drive a normal car or whether you’re a 4×4 aficionado. The guide contains articles about Nxai Pan, the Boteti River, the Kalahari and Tuli Block. Writer Willem van der Berg describes a wild and wonderful roadtrip through the Moremi and Chobe, while Toast Coetzer explores further north into Zambia, explaining how you can add on a clever route to your Botswana holiday to include Kafue National Park. We also visit the districts of Palapye and Francistown, and share classic wildlife photos from the Chobe River. Our cartographer Franҫois Haasbroek created 9 road and reserve maps which you can use to plan your trip – and while exploring the country. The accommodation guide lists 133 places to stay (with prices, contact details and GPS points) in Botswana and adjacent parts of Namibia (Zambezi Region), Zambia (Livingstone, Zambezi River, Kafue) and Zimbabwe (Vic Falls). The basics are also covered: how to cross the border in a jiffy, travel tips, border post times – we even tell you where to buy good braai meat!
