Botswana is known as one of the most beautiful and scenic places to take a safari in all of Africa. The country's low population - only two million people - and commitment to conservation and luxury tourism make a Botswana timeshare the perfect place to see vast herds of elephants and other native African wildlife while on vacation.
With a Botswana timeshare, you can easily visit some of the country's most well-known safari destinations. In the north, the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world, is filled with waterways that attract thousands of birds in over 400 different species. In the grasslands surrounding the delta, giraffes and zebra herds roam free, hunted by some of Africa's most famous big game predators. Unlike many deltas, which flow out into the ocean, the delta here spreads into the desert and dries out in the sand, showing any visitor a unique contrast not quite seen anywhere else on Earth.
Heading northeast of the Delta, the Chobe National Park is famous for its massive elephant herds as well as the lions, hippos, and cheetahs that call it home. A safari tour through these wilderness areas can be a real treat for travelers both young and old, making it a destination both for adults and for children who will learn valuable lessons in the importance of conservation.
Any Nightlife or Shopping?
Nightlife in Botswana tends to be fairly quiet, as most of the tourism is centered on the safari parks and wildlife tours. Most of what you will find is in the capital, Gaberone, but even that is typically limited to a few bars and restaurants catering to tourists and visitors. Your Botswana timeshare resort or hotel may also have live entertainment and events going on in the evenings to entertain the vacationers staying there.
Shopping can be done as you travel by purchasing from the local shops. The area around the Okavango Delta is known for its beautiful handwoven baskets and you can also find beautiful examples of woodcarvings, handmade jewelry, textiles, and other memorabilia for sale throughout your trip.
Best Time to Travel
Tourism is at its busiest from September through November due to the beautiful weather and low precipitation, so this is the perfect time to take an outdoor safari through the wildlife reserves. Reservations tends to fill up quickly so you will want to make sure you book in advance for your Botswana timeshare. If you go in the slow season, which runs June through August, and again December through February, you have a better chance of getting a good deal, although the summer weather from December through February can be both humid and rainy. Remember that this is in the southern hemisphere, so the autumn months in Botswana, from March through May, are the second busiest time of year for tourism.
