Try a Motorhome Safari in Botswana
Motorhome safari in Botswana
If safari driving is your dream, then Botswana is the place to go. Considered to be safer than other safari destinations such as Kenya, Botswana is easy to navigate by self-driving. There are many magnificent nature reserves and safari parks to discover, with most of them featuring campervan parks.
Because Botswana is small, there is no need to drive a long distance to see fantastic animals. Straight from your safari camper, you will be able to see elephants, gazelles and zebra in their natural habitat. Road conditions are generally good, except during the rainy season, when roads can get washed out.
Recommended Routes in Botswana
from the capital of Botswana, it is easy to reach the amazing safari and nature reserves of the country. Head north along the A1 to the beautiful Makadikadi Basin, one of the world’s largest salt flats. Visitors will find full-service campervan sites in Francistown and Maun.
north of the city of Maun is the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in Botswana. There are an incredible number of wild animals to be seen here. Campervan sites are available right in Moremi Game Reserve or nearby Selinda Game Reserve.
from Sehithwa, head north on the A36 to Tsodilo Hills Nature Reserve. It is famous for its rock paintings. There are several designated campervan sites within the park, such as Zibadianja Camp and Motswiri Camp, but camping is actually permitted anywhere in the park.
Driving Tips Botswana
cities and urban areas have paved roads, but road conditions outside these built-up areas vary. The road network is simple and easy to navigate. A map is a must, with GPS even better. There is no roadside assistance.
Urban roads: 60kph unless specified
Provincial roads: 60kph
National roads and motorways: 120kph
0.8 per cent, not regularly policed, modest on-the-spot fines.
driving is on the left-hand side. Night-time driving can be treacherous as many drivers do not use headlights, so avoid driving at night. Carrying a winch, a rope, a jack, a full petrol can and a spare tyre is a must.
can vary greatly but around half that of the UK; try to choose large petrol stations, as small places may not have good quality petrol on sale.
