Visas are the responsibility of the traveller. It is best to consult with the high commission of the country being travelled to in the country being travelled from as requirements vary and change constantly. Botswana Safaris will not be held responsible for any incomplete or incorrect information regarding the visa process gathered by the traveller.

Botswana offers some brilliant birding opportunities and the Okavango Delta, southern Africa’s finest wetland, is perhaps the ultimate bird watching destination. The Royal Delta Lodge features vast expanses of largely undisturbed wilderness that is perfect for keen birders and is home to more than 500 species of resident and migrant birds. A true phantom in the birding community, the Royal Delta Lodge offers guests one of the best opportunities to catch a glimpse of the highly desirable Pel’s Fishing Owl. Best visited after the rains, around October, enthusiasts may also seek out the White-backed Night-Heron, Slaty Egret, Wattled Crane, Lesser Jacana, Southern Pied-Babblers and Hartlaub’s Babblers, Swamp Boubou, Brown Fire Finch and melodious Larks.
