Some visitor websites

The Government's tourism site is one of the best and most comprehensive sites about tourism in Botswana, covering everything from national park fees to getting around, useful books to representatives abroad, culture to health, details about flora and fauna to current news and events.  

There are many websites about tourism in Botswana.  Safari, tour-operators' and lodge websites provide information about the tourist destinations, photos and other useful information.  They don't, however, tend to provide information about local hotels, camping sites and other such low-cost options!

Some sites which we used for accommodation are:

Accommodation in Botswana - Covers Chobe, the Okavango, Kalahari and Makgadigadi Pans. Includes info about accommodation and the area & concludes each section with "10 good reasons to visit…"

Safari Portal

Other sites with informoation about various parts of Botswana and accommodation, but we haven't used ourselves are as follows.  Many of these are also useful for other parts of Africa.

Go 2 Africa - includes all the above, including info about towns, activities, travel guides and a photo gallery.

e-Gnu - Botswana:  the same sort of info.

The following four sites which are part of Island Safari, each include destination info and further info about the area - e.g. the Kalahari site includes info about the San people.
