Botswana is becoming a popular destination for a South Africa twin or multi-centre holiday stop off. Officially known as the Republic of Botswana, it is a landlocked (no coastal area) country situated in Southern Africa (but not in 'South Africa'). The population here refer to themselves as the Batswana and are notably a friendly people, welcoming of tourists. Botswana is formerly the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, which applied its new name after declaring independence within the Commonwealth back in September 1966. Since then the country has admirably maintained a strong tradition of consistent representative democracy, with a stable record of uninterrupted and peaceful democratic elections.

Botswana - being in Africa - is a great destination for a winter sun holiday for us Brits, given that their summer opposes our winters. However, sunshine totals are actually high all year round here, although winter is, oddly enough, the sunniest period. Botswana is semi-arid, as a result of the short rain seasons it experiences. However  the high altitude of the country and its continental location gives it a balanced subtropical climate. The dry season here lasts from April to October in the south and to November in the northern areas, however the rainfall totals are typically higher. The whole country has very hot summers with average temperatures of around 26 °C, meaning comfortable sleeping at night and a nice balance of heat during the day. Call us on our freephone number for ideas on where to visit, what to see and do on your exciting family or twin or even multi-centre holiday to Botswana.
