Holiday tour packages are really the most affordable way to travel. You would have an upfront view of the expense and able to decide whether or not it would suit you. You would just need to take along some cash for any shopping you plan on doing and tipping. The only thing not included in tours, the Botswana wildlife safari for example, would be the flight into the country. While tour packages are excellent on the wallet and a way to meet new foreign friends, it does not include the international flight because of the fluctuations of the group coming in from different countries. Travel upon reaching the airport in Botswana is taken care off, continuing through the rest of the trip. Hotels and campsites are another factor along with food. The exciting part of the Botswana wildlife safari is that it is done with a tour guide escorting the group all around. Their role is not just to keep the group together but also to handle the education portion of the trip and be on hand to answer questions from the group.
The fascinating thing about the Botswana wildlife safari is the abundance of animals and landscapes one is bound to see during the 2 week trip. Key areas to visit are the Kalahari and the Okavango Delta. Its deep contrast is a marvel to the eye and the reason that many a Botswana wildlife safari include a photography guide to come along on the journey, to show the group how to take truly spectacular photos. Animals remain the highlight of the tour. Of course the big 5 are the first thing on everyone’s mind but the Okavango and Kalahari are also swarming with other species of animals from birds to reptiles. Botswana in general is excellent for birding. The country holds up to a 200 birding species, a few of which are endemic. Big games animals can be seen year round.
There is no specific time at which one has to come in to spot them. The reality is that the time of year only dictates the type of climate one is going to enter into. The beginning of the year is warm and humid and more suited to those who are used to this weather. Access to air conditioning is only available at the hotel or in the vehicle. Since you have to be out of the vehicle, you would have to be able to manage the heat. The other option would be to come in during the latter part of the year which is the drier season and much cooler. All of this will be explained to anyone wishing to go on a Botswana wildlife safari. Help is given right from the moment you decide to go on the trip and need information, upon confirmation of your booking and right through until the trip is set to happen. The Botswana wildlife safari is definitely one of those trips that is going to hold a lifetime of memories whether you are doing it alone, with your partner, friends or family.
