1. No time difference – no jet lag
Botswana can be easily reached from Germany with several airlines and one stopover. Self-drive also often start in Johannesburg or Windhoek for a country combination. No jet lag = more time traveling
2. Mass tourism? Not in Botswana
The country relies on quality instead of quantity to prevent mass tourism like in other countries. On the one hand, this means: lots of space, peace and quiet and exclusivity on the journey, but also higher prices than in neighboring countries.
3. Our Afrikascout customers love elephants! You also?
With over 130,000 elephants, Botswana is home to the largest elephant population in Africa. So if you love elephants, fly to Botswana.
4. The Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world. Coming from the highlands of Angola, the Okavango River meets the Kalahari Desert here. It is one of the largest and probably also the most extraordinary nature reserves on earth, because the mixture of water and desert has become home to countless animals and a flora and fauna that is second to none.
5. Traveling with sustainability in mind
More than 40% of Botswana’s land area is protected. There are no fences either. The animals can move freely. You can sponsor many great projects for people, nature and animals on site. Important: When you book your trip with Afrikascout, you also automatically support excellent local projects in Africa.
6. A starry sky in a class of its own
We can guarantee you one thing! You have never seen a starry sky like in Botswana. Unless you have already been to Namibia. Experience billions of stars in the black night sky. Discover the Milky Way and the “Southern Cross”. An unforgettable experience.
