International & Charter Flights

We look after you from the moment you arrive in Botswana to be whisked away to your first camp via chartered aircraft.

 

But lets firstly look at how you get to Botswana in the first place.

International Arrivals

 

Most arrivals into Botswana are via International flights. Botswana has two safari "Hubs" and these are both where you are most likely to enter and exit the country.

 

Maun International Airport

 

This is main hub and the starting point for the majority of our safaris. When you land you are immediately escorted to your Charter Flight to your first camp, or you are met by a representative of your Mobile Tented Safari and driven in to the bush and your first campsite.

 

Most flights into Maun come from Johannesburg in South Africa and the two main carriers for the international flights into Maun are:-

 

SA Airlink -            https://flyairlink.com

Air Botswana -     https://www.airbotswana.co.bw

 

In order for you to arrive in time for your safari, both airlines list scheduled direct flights from Johannesburg to Maun which arrive at approximately 13:15... these are the flights to book.

 

Both airlines are very reliable and you can easily book your flights with them online.

 

Kasane International Airport

 

This is our second hub and is used more often to exit Botswana after a safari or as a transfer point to and from Vic Falls in either Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Both SA Airlink and Air Botswana operate the route from Johannesburg to Kasane return, and if entering Botswana into Kasane you should still look for flights which arrive at approximately 13:30 for the start of your safari.

 

It should be noted that currently only SA Airlink flies direct from Johannesburg to Maun, so this is your better choice for carrier. Air Botswana is a bit hit and miss with this.

Charter Flights

 

Often talked about as a taxi service.... Maun airport is one of the busiest in Africa with many light aircarft buzzing over the Okavango Delta, ferrying their clients from camp to camp.

 

There are few charter companies to choose from, all of which are stringently regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority to provide very safe and timely transportation for all our clients.

 

The charter aircraft are specificall;y designed to fly into our unique bush airstrips. They are of varying sizes, from the cessna 206, which is a 5 passenger carrying craft up to the bigger Cessana 208, which can carry up to 12 passengers.

BIG TIP...!

 

The biggest tip we can give you is to ALWAYS take your camera on board the aircraft with you... and have it ready at all times... Afterall when else are you going to be flying over the Okavango Delta or Central Kalahari.

 

You can take some stunning photos sometimes flying low or just catching the curvature of the earth with the Delta below you...

As with any aircraft in the modern world we live in ... there are restrictions as to the type and weight of luggage you can use.... have a read of the requirements below.
