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.

Visa Regulations

  • Hat - soft and easy to fold up
  • Sunscreen
  • Warm windbreaker-type jacket as temperatures drop in the evenings and on open vehicles
  • Beany, scarf and gloves for travel in May to August
  • Comfortable, preferably closed, shoes
  • Binoculars
  • Cameras and accessories
  • Small torch
  • Swimming costume to cool of in the pool in summer
  • All your chargers. Preferably plug adapters as we might not have the correct connections for you at the lodge
  • A packet of wet-wipes. This always helps to freshen up after a plane ride or open vehicle transfer to the airstrip
  • Anti-airsickness tablets if you are at all sensitive to motion sickness as some of the flights on small planes could get a bit bumpy
  • Make sure you have anti-malaria tablets if you are traveling in the Delta and bring extra mosquito spray (although most lodges provide it)
  • ... and most importantly. Bring as sense of adventure!
