Hotels & Lodges - Botswana
Safari camps and game lodges tend to be the accommodation of choice for tourists visiting Botswana, simply because most travelers go specifically for an amazing safari experience for which Botswana is renowned. The main safari areas – the Okavango Delta, Chobe, Linyanti, Savute, the Tuli Block and the Kalahari – offer remote, intimate, unique encounters with wildlife, birds and pristine nature and accommodating visitors in these sensitive ecosystems often necessitates camps and lodges to be as low impact as possible. Safari camps range from basic adventure to luxury with tented camps being the most sought after. Game lodges which offer more permanent structures, such as thatched chalets, are next on the list. Traditional style hotels in Botswana are best suited to the larger business centres such as the capital, Gaberone, and Francistown in Botswana’s north east. Guest houses are common in the smaller tourism-focused towns such as Maun and Kasane. For something a little different there are also specialized accommodation alternatives such as mobile safari camps, the Selinda Canoe Trail for example, to add a unique perspective to your Botswana adventure.
