Itineraries and Prices for Botswana

Traditionally, Botswana is one of the more expensive safari destinations in Africa.

This is principally due to a Governmental ‘low impact/ high income’ tourism management policy, with many wilderness areas being designated as private concessions where tourist numbers are strictly limited. This results in a highly exclusive, but consequently expensive, safari destination.

However there are also National Parks and Game Reserves that are not quite so exclusive. If you are on a limited budget, it is possible to explore many of these areas by self-drive vehicle, or by joining a group camping trip, but invariably you’ll lose out on the exclusivity for which the country is renowned.

Prices vary considerably due to the season of travel. July to October is generally considered high season, with April to June and November as the shoulder season, and December to March as the low/green season. Typically, a tailor-made 10 day safari, not including international flights, will start at around US$6,000/£5,000 per person in the green season, but is likely to be double this price in the high season, and for very upmarket itineraries prices can easily reach US$20,000/£16,000 per person or more.

Combining a shorter Botswana safari with sight-seeing or beach destinations in other countries (such as South Africa, Zimbabwe or Mauritius) will help reduce the price, depending on what is included.
