Then there is the question of Passports and visas
Botswana welcomes visitors with open arms and for most nationalities, all
you need is your own passport valid for at least 6 months with one clear page.
Passports that are expiring soon, torn, scruffy, damaged may be refused entry!
All borders will issue a 28 day stay visa free of charge on arrival.
Please check at a Botswana embassy for your specific nationality.
An easy drive to start off the trip, an early morning start to beat the
city traffic, a smooth border crossing (took 30 minutes) and I was into Botswana!
First thing you notice is that there is less traffic, and a lot less towns and buildings but the road is in excellent condition and I zip along carefully under the speed limit to avoid the speed cops.
The journey was so easy I could have continued on past Gaborone but I had
booked a place to stay already so I spent a lazy afternoon around the city.
Gaborone is nothing special (no offence Gabs) its the place to get business done in Botswana and a convenient overnight stop.
Its a clean, safe city with all the usual city things, shopping malls, banks, restaurants, hotels, ATMs, internet etc.
