6 Things NOT To Do in Botswana

Get more Tips here!
Botswana has its share of troubles, just like any developed nation, but it’s also considered one of the safest nations in Africa. It’s safe, it’s gorgeous, and they have rhinos there...

1. Don’t Skimp on the Mosquito Repellent
Malaria is a thing in Botswana, so you’re definitely going to want some mosquito repellent. You can also lower your risk of catching malaria by visiting during the winter months.

2. Don’t Skip the Okavango Delta
This lush natural reserve is like the opening ten minutes of The Lion King. You can sail over the waters, and camp out next to the river itself, always surrounded by some of Africa’s most majestic wildlife.

3. Don’t Speed Through Maun
On the western side of the city are a series of traditional African villages that are home to a welcoming group of people who’ve maintained a centuries old culture. The rest of the city is decidedly modern and welcoming to travelers.

4. Don’t Get Careless Around the Wildlife
Most tour guides will know how to keep overly curious tourists in line. That said, if you do happen to slip past a watchful eye, just remember that you’re approaching a wild animal.

5. Don’t Forget the Kalahari
Botswana is also home to South Africa’s most famous desert, the jaw-dropping Kalahari. The area is both beautiful and freaking massive and it's worth exploring.

6. Don’t Miss Khama Rhino Sanctuary
If you’re interested in taking your family on a safari, then you should absolutely spend an evening or two at the Khama Rhino Sanctuary. Especially for those who love curious visitors...

6 Crimes To Avoid in Botswana, South Africa

Get more Tips here!
If you’ve ever wanted to go on a perfect safari, Botswana is the place to visit. It’s a trip unlike any other… However, there’s one or two things to know about Botswana before you head out.

1. Don’t Talk on a Cell Phone While Walking
There are some small time criminals who will walk up to someone talking on their cell phone and snatch it out of their hand and then take off. It’s best to keep your phone in your pocket.

2. Don’t Try to Resist a Carjacking
Carjackings have been known to happen mostly in urban areas. If it does, remember that you’re in a rental and don’t resist. Just let them take the car and your stuff. It’s just stuff.

3. Don’t Pack Expensive Luggage
At some of the major airports in South Africa, Johannesburg and Cape Town International Airports, there’s an epidemic of baggage theft. It’s best to ensure that your most expensive possessions stay on you when you’re traveling. Don’t check anything that might draw a greedy person’s attention.

4. Don’t Make Yourself a Target
You can avoid crime in Botswana by simply leaving your jewelry at home. Don’t flash an expensive camera or smartphone anywhere that it’s not necessary. Just make sure you’re being discreet and you won’t have a problem.

5. Don’t Play Fast and Loose With the Law
Punishments here tend to be more severe than in America and you never want to spend time at a US Embassy in any country. So, check the rules and then stick to them.

6. Don’t Get Worried About Street Crime
Unlike a lot of other countries in Africa, Botswana is relatively free of street crime, even in the larger cities. However, caution is advised in the Gaborone Dam area and in the Kgale Hill section of the country’s capital, Gaborone.

Okavango Delta, Botswana Safari (HD 1080p)

Okavango Delta, Botswana Safari - Okavango Delta Safaris - Okavango Delta tours
Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide
See in Okavango Delta, Botswana
====================
The Okavango Delta is one of the world's great inland waterways. The meandering Okavango River is breathtaking, seen either by boat, airplane or mokoro. The main choices are to go on safari in Moremi Game Reserve or stay at one or two of the many lodges. The animals, as outlined below, the birding, flora and fauna are spectacular. There are some amazing lodges like Oddballs Camp Media: and Delta Camp. A trip called the Trans Okavango takes you from the top of the Okavango Delta to Maun.

Tsodilo Hills a 10 sq km area UNESCO World Heritage Site [6] due to its 4500 rock paintings. It's about a 40 km drive along a good grade dirt road from Shakawe.

Do in Okavango Delta, Botswana
==================
Go. It's amazing. Fabulous. One the most magical places in the entire world. The budget minded can take the bus from Maun to Sepopa. There is now a river taxi that travels daily from Sepopa to Seronga and coordinates with the buses. If your timing is off stay at Swamp Stop overnight. In Seronga you can stay at the Polers Trust and enjoy the mekoro trips.

Much of the area is divided into large concessions run by various safari groups. Development is strictly regulated so that there is little development and lots of wildlife. It is expensive, but worth it to stay in some of these permanent tented campsites. The guides are knowledgeable, and the accommodations very comfortable. Wilderness Safaris runs many great camps. They are all inclusive: two wildlife rides a day, all meals, snacks and drinks are included in the price.

The University of Botswana's Harry Oppenheimer Okavango Research Centre HOORC was established in 1994 in response to the need to understand the natural and human processes that shape the Delta, which became a Ramsar Wetland of International Significance in December 1996. HOORC's multidisciplinary research teams provide the science to support the work of local, national and regional planning bodies such as Botswana's Okavango Delta Management Plan and OKACOM the Okavango River Basin Water Commmission. Flow the HOORC Library weblog, reports research and news relevant to the Delta.


Okavango Delta
==============
This delta in north-west Botswana comprises permanent marshlands and seasonally flooded plains. It is one of the very few major interior delta systems that do not flow into a sea or ocean, with a wetland system that is almost intact. One of the unique characteristics of the site is that the annual flooding from the River Okavango occurs during the dry season, with the result that the native plants and animals have synchronized their biological cycles with these seasonal rains and floods. It is an exceptional example of the interaction between climatic, hydrological and biological processes. The Okavango Delta is home to some of the world’s most endangered species of large mammal, such as the cheetah, white rhinoceros, black rhinoceros, African wild dog and lion.

Botswana /bɒtswɑːnə/, officially the Republic of Botswana (Tswana: Lefatshe la Botswana), is a landlocked country located in Southern Africa. The citizens refer to themselves as Batswana (singular: Motswana). Formerly the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, Botswana adopted its new name after becoming independent within the Commonwealth on 30 September 1966. It has held uninterrupted democratic elections since independence.
Botswana is flat, and up to 70% is covered by the Kalahari Desert. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast. Its border with Zambia to the north near Kazungula, Zambia is poorly defined but at most is a few hundred metres long.[5]
A mid-sized country of just over two million people, Botswana is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. Botswana was one of the poorest countries in Africa when it gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1966, with a GDP per capita of about US$70. Botswana has since transformed itself, becoming one of the fastest-growing economies in the world to a GDP (purchasing power parity) per capita of about $14,000,[1] and a high gross national income, possibly the fourth-largest in Africa, giving the country a modest standard of living.[6] The country also has a strong tradition as a representative democracy and has the second highest Human Development Index of continental Sub-Saharan African countries.

Travel Guide To Explore Botswana With The Divergent Travelers

Country #13 in 2015 was BOTSWANA! This country surprised us, we weren't really sure what to expect here but ended up being surprised and so much more. How great is that? Lonely Planet just voted Botswana as the top destination to visit in 2016, with good reason. We bush camped in the Okavango Delta, slept among elephants and had a fantastic river safari in Chobe National Park. Our only regret? That we didn't have more days to spend here!

Botswana Tourism & Vacations

Botswana travel guide, Botswana travel vlog, Botswana Tourism & Vacations
Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide

Botswana is a land-locked country located in Southern Africa and bordering on Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Botswana is famous for its wildlife, areas like the Chobe National Park, Moremi National Park in the Okavango Delta and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve have a very high concentration of game.

The bulk of the Kalahari desert falls within Botswana's borders and Botswana is home to most of the world's San (bushman) population.

The economy, one of the most robust on the continent, is dominated by diamond mining and tourism.

Talk in Botswana, Southern Africa
===========================
The official languages of Botswana are English and Tswana. Kalanga is spoken near the Zimbabwe border areas, and is similar to Shona.

The language of business in Botswana is English and most people in urban areas speak it, although in the more rural areas many people do not speak English, particularly the older generations. The primary indigenous tongue is Tswana, and is the first language of the overwhelming majority of the population. It is not difficult to learn basic greetings and such, and using these in conversation will make people very happy.

See in Botswana, Southern Africa
============================
Wildlife is Botswana's main draw. Wildlife parks compose nearly one-fifth of the country. In these parks you will find lions, cheetahs, crocodiles, hippos, elephants, antelope, wild dogs, and hundreds of species of birds. Visitors can take safaris and stay in lodges running the gamut from inexpensive dorms for backpackers with tour buses to $1,000+/night private lodges with your own maid & driver.

Among southern Africa's most impressive—and popular—wildlife destinations is the Okavango Delta where the Okavango River widens into the world's largest inland delta. Lying in the middle of the arid Kalahari, the swamps & water channels attract animals from thousands of kilometers around and triples in size (to 100 000 sq. km.!) during floods in July and August. Nearby Chobe National Park has a large population of elephants and it's also easy to spot many of Africa's well-known species, especially zebras and lions. The bleak salt pans of Makgadikgadi Pans National Park attract a large number and variety of birds year-round. Other great game parks include Nxai Pan National Park, Mokolodi Nature Reserve, & Gemsbok National Park.

Most of the native tribes in Botswana only dress in traditional outfits and perform rituals for tourists. Nevertheless, for the culture-cravers, the villages of D'Kar and Xai-Xai have many offerings, including arts, crafts, and the opportunity to participate in various rituals. Tsodilo Hills contain one of the largest collections of rock art on the continent.

Buy in Botswana, Southern Africa
===========================
Botswana's currency is the pula', often locally symbolised as P; its ISO 4217 code is BWP placed directly before the amount with no intervening space.

Banknotes circulate in denominations of BWP10, BWP20, BWP50, BWP100 and BWP200. You can find 5, 10, 25, and 50 thebe coins, together with BWP1, BWP2 and BWP5 pieces and 100 thebe equals one pula. In Setswana, pula means rain and thebe means shield. Rough conversions were BWP10.61=USD1, BWP11.35=€1, BWP13.13=GBP1 and BWP0.78=ZAR1 in Jan 2017.
Shopping

For the independent traveller prices in Botswana compare to neighbouring South Africa. Notable exceptions are petrol and diesel which are about a third cheaper in Botswana, and alcohol, which is about a third more expensive.

Eat in Botswana, Southern Africa
==========================
Indigenous Botswana cuisine is similar to the rest of southern Africa and offers little to inspire. Beef is taken seriously and can be of exceptional quality. The braai is a popular cuisine.

Stay safe
===========
People in Botswana are very friendly and the crime rate is low. There isn't much to worry about on this front. Nevertheless, crime has been on the rise over the past several years, so always be aware of your surroundings. Basic common sense will keep you safe from the predatory wildlife in rural areas. Botswana happens to be one of the safest countries in Africa, no civil war, less corruption, human rights, no natural disasters e.g earthquakes or tsunamis.

Botswana: Where to go and what to see

Virtually synonymous with the Kalahari Desert, much of Botswana is flat and dry, covered in thorny acacia trees and home to enormous salt pans and rolling grasslands. Rainfall is highest in northern Botswana where vast open woodlands dominate the environment and several globally important wetland habitats - the Okavango Delta, the Linyanti Swamps and the Chobe River - support huge numbers of animals.
Botswana is a haven for wildlife and several of its protected areas - the Chobe National Park, the Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve in particular - rank among Africa's best game-viewing destinations. Botswana's Kalahari parks are some of the wildest and least developed in the region but offer excellent opportunities for game viewing, especially in early summer when several local zebra migrations occur.

Botswana's wildlife highlights include Africa's greatest concentrations of elephant, fantastic bird watching, abundant predators and the continent's largest population of African wild dog. Botswana's lions are particularly famous for their size and their ability to prey on large animals such as hippo, buffalo and even young elephants.

The evergreen jewel of the Okavango Delta is at the heart of Botswana’s safari attractions, flanked in the east by the rolling savannah of the Savuti and the teeming elephant paradise of the Chobe.

Zanzibar Island tourism, Tanzania (HD 1080p)

Zanzibar Island tourism, Tanzania - Trip to Zanzibar Island, Tanzania - Zanzibar Island vacations
Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide
Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous archipelago off the coast of Tanzania consisting of Zanzibar Island (locally, Unguja), Pemba Island and many smaller islands. Zanzibar island itself is approximately 90km long and 30km wide.

See in Zanzibar, Tanzania
===================
There is a lot to see and to do on Zanzibar island. First and foremost, do enjoy the amazing white sand beaches especially at the north, east and south coast. The sand has the consistency of castor sugar! The best beaches are Nungwi/Kendwa, Matemwe/Kiwengwa and Paje/Jambiani, each offering different appeal.

Zanzibar Island, a.k.a., The Spice Island, was an important stop in the Spice Trade centuries ago. Today, it is one of the few places in the world where saffron is produced, and many other Middle Eastern/Asian spices (cardamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, etc.) are grown here. Visit one of the spice farms where you can see how anise, pepper, cloves etc. grow; you can sample some of the exotic fruit grown on the island. And do check out the lipstick tree.

There are a number of historically important (and frankly, just plain beautiful) buildings in Stone Town, like The House of Wonders and The Arab Fort. It is easy to arrange a simple walking tour with a local guide who can teach you some history. The market in Stone Town is one of the largest, most vibrant open-air markets anywhere. Here, you can find several varieties of bananas, elephant garlic unique to the island, the largest avocados you'll probably ever see, and more. Prices are extremely reasonable. Even if you have no intentions of purchasing food, the spectacle alone is worth a visit. If seeing raw meat and fish covered in flies makes you squeamish, avoid that part of the market. Overall, pretty much all food that is not packaged in plastic is covered in flies.

Seaweed Center (Seaweed industry development project), (Paje, East Coast, Zanzibar), ☎ +255 772 37-18-44, 3% of the world's commercial harvest of Seaweed is taking place in Zanzibar island. The industry has ~15,000 women seaweed farmers. The Seaweed Center is a socially responsible business that provides female seaweed farmers in Paje, Zanzibar with opportunities to improve their personal standards of living and develop economic activities that benefit the entire community. The project comprises a factory and gathering site to produce soaps and creams from seaweed that are sold locally and begin to be distributed throughout East Africa. Tours are available, showing the life of seaweed women, the work and the value added activities.ck tree. *Zanzibar also has quite a lot of caves, e.g. Tazani near Nungwi or Kuumbi Caves in Jambiani. A tour company in Jambiani called Mambo Poa Tours ( offers excursions off the beaten track, for example to an abandoned eco resort in the South of Zanzibar. Also do a village tour that are offered all over the island. The villagers don't see tourists as intruders, to the contrary, they welcome foreigners. *Please do make sure that you are dressed with a t-shirt and knee-length pants - Zanzibarians are 98 % Muslims and walking through villages in beach gear is disrespectful. *A Zanzibar resident put together quite a lot of information on Zanzibar Insider Buzz, you can google it. There are also useful facebook pages, such as Karibu Zanzibar, Backpacking in Zanzibar, plus any facebook page from one of the many tour operators. *Jozani Forest has excellent nature trails, featuring some very exotic (and large) trees and plants. Even more interesting, though, are the Red Colobus Monkeys that live here. These Monkeys can only survive on Zanzibar, nowhere else in the world, since they need a diet of 70 different plants, berries etc. The Red Colobus Monkeys are a protected species. A major part of the entrance fees goes to the local farmers in the surrounding area. In the past, the farmers killed the Monkeys because they destroyed their crops. Ever since they are compensated for their losses, the killing stopped. They are very curious and playful and will likely pose for a picture. The entry fee (USD10) also include an optional visit to a beautiful mangrove forest which is highly recommended.


Stone Town
========
The inner city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000, is a most unique city. Blending Moorish, Middle Eastern, Indian, and African traditions and architectures, it is possible to spend days winding through Stone Town's labyrinthine alleys. That said, a day will give you plenty of insight. The inner city is small and can easily be explored by foot. It is estimated that 85% of the historic building fabric (coral stone) of Stone Town is irredeemably lost.
