Lifestyle

Botswana is a peaceful and stable African country. It has also been on the economic upswing since its departure from the British Empire in 1966 and is able to boast impressive growth rates in per capita income. Botswana is also well endowed with natural resources and is a popular destination for tourism in Southern Africa.The official language in Botswana is English, but Setswana is also quite popular, and if an expat travels to a more rural location, he or she is encouraged to learn this language. Also, while quality healthcare is quite accessible in Botswana, serious emergencies and procedures may require trips to South Africa.The leisure opportunities may seem rather exotic for the westerner. There is a wealth of wildlife. Safaris and hiking are popular. Also, Namibia and South Africa are close by and are popular with the tourists community. Read more…

Climate

Climate
The best time to visit Botswana is during the winter months from April till August as the days are generally pleasant and the wildlife never wanders far from their water sources. Enjoy wildlife viewing and explore the Okavango, as prolonged rains may render sandy roads uncross-able, and animals disperse when water is abundant. Summer (December to April) isn’t the best time to visit.
