Affordable Botswana

Affordable Botswana? Absolutely!

Botswana’s reputation as one of the very best places in Africa to see wildlife in unspoiled habitats goes hand in hand with the common perception that it is also one of the more expensive destinations to go on safari.

Whilst it is certainly true that there are a few lodges with nightly rates that will make you eyes water, it is also true that, with a little bit of planning, Botswana can be very affordable.

Go Green

The green season is when the vegetation is at its most lush and without the need to congregate around permanent water bodies, the animals are more spread out.
It is a more pleasant time to travel, avoiding the dry dusty conditions of summer, and it is the time when many of the lodges offer amazing savings on their high season rates.
