Where to start your Botswana Self Drive
Self-drive journeys to Botswana can start with the car rental in Johannesburg (to which it is cheap to fly and rental prices are low) or in Botswana itself. It is popular to start and end in Kasane, at the Chobe River banks, not far from Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) and Livingstone (Zambia). An alternative starting point for a self-drive journey is Maun, located centrally near the Okavango Delta, the Moremi Game Reserve and also the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. You can also start and end in Windhoek (Namibia) or Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe).
From Maun (Botswana) you can also visit the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. With the 4×4 you can cross the desolate Nwetwe Pan and camp on the remarkable Kubu Island. These salt pans can also be incorporated into a Botswana self drive starting (or ending) in Johannesburg. On the road to Botswana you can then also visit the Tuli Block and for example the Khama Rhino Sanctuary. Where you can see the rare white rhino.
Beste game parks and reserves:
The Okavango Delta is a must do! You can visit the Delta from Maun. Either via a day trip or a multiple day tour. But best will be an excursion in the western part of the Moremi Game Reserve. e.g. at the Mboma Boat station or Xakanaxa. You can also visit the The Okavango Delta Pan Handle in Northwest Botswana & the Caprivi Strip (Namibia).
