  1. Make sure you avoid drinking tap water in Botswana. In urban areas the water is chlorinated and local people may drink it, however we very strongly advise you drink bottled water at all times. Water outside of the urban areas is contaminated.

    In short, no. The water in Botswana is not safe to drink. This means you must ensure that ice cubes, drinking water and even the water for brushing your teeth is bottled.
    Always double check water bottles when they are handed to you to ensure they are sealed. During your safari, bottled water is readily available.
