Travel in Botswana can be done in many ways; including combining game drives and small charter flights. The travel here is all part of the experience.
A majority of travel in Botswana is done by private charter flights; in fact this is the only way to reach a majority of the camps in areas such as Chobe, Okavango Delta, Central Kalahari and the Moremi Reserve. Many accommodations have private landing strips on location, or just a short game drive away. Scheduled light aircraft depart from Maun and Kasane, handling all inter-camp transfers as well.
These flights give you an incredible perspective on Botswana’s beautifully diverse landscapes, and being in such a small plane can be quite a thrill. It also saves a lot of time compared to driving these distances, meaning more time on the ground to explore the many attractions of this fantastic destination.
Light aircraft usually have a luggage restriction of 15kg. Bags must be in soft, squash-able bags so they can be easily handled and fit into the aircraft. You are also allowed 5kg of hand luggage.
