AIRTravel to Botswana by air in most cases is via South Africa. Air Botswana has direct flights from Johannesburg to Gaborone (the capital) and to Maun, gateway to the Okavango Delta. Recent additions are flights from Johannesburg to Francistown, Botswana’s second city. You can also reach Maun direct from Windhoek, Namibia.
There is also a direct flight from Johannesburg to Kasane, which serves the northern area of the Chobe.
Kasane is also an excellent gateway to Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls is only 75 kilometres away) and for onward travel into Zambia.
Air Botswana flights can now be booked online. Should you have any difficulties with booking Air Botswana lights, we can do these for you at a nominal fee.
ROADIf you are travelling into Botswana by road from South Africa, Namibia, Zambia or Zimbabwe, please enquire regarding border hours and border regulations. Borders from South Africa into Botswana are numerous and we can advise you on the best route, where to get petrol, book you accommodation within Botswana and give you up-to-date travel advice.
Main roads are in good condition in the country. Bear in mind that distances are vast. Travelling from Johannesburg by road to Maun (for access to Moremi Game Reserve or the Okavango Delta) takes approximately 14 hours, travelling at the speed limit of 120 km/hour.
