Flights to Botswana

We arrange the flights to Botswana for most of our travellers, and have excellent flights rates. However, if you would prefer to arrange your own flights, or book with air-miles or the like, then feel free to do so. If you organise the flights, we are happy to just make your ground arrangements.

Starting from London

The easiest and most direct way to reach Botswana from London is to fly to Jo'burg (often with South African Airways or British Airways), and then connect through to one of Botswana's two 'gateway' airports: Maun in Botswana, or Livingstone beside the Victoria Falls in Zambia.

These flights depart from Heathrow every day of the week.

Starting from the USA

Coming from the USA, your have choices to make about your flights. In broad terms, your two options for the flight arrangements are:

1)
You arrange your return flights USA -> London and London -> USA for yourself.
Expert Africa arranges the London -> Maun / Livingstone and Livingstone / Maun -> London flights for you.

This makes a lot of sense as we have great rates on the flights to Jo'burg – and allows us to utilise low add-on rates internal flights within Africa which we can buy for your trip linked to you international ticket. (Especially true of the Air Botswana flights on the Maun / Jo'burg route.) However, you need to make sure that you have enough turn-around time between planes in London.

2)
You arrange your own flights USA -> Botswana and Botswana -> USA, either via London or on any other route, and advise us of the flight times and carriers.
Expert Africa arranges your arrangements in Botswana for you, including any smaller flights within Botswana, and any arrangements in Livingstone.

This makes more sense if you are flying direct from the US – eg on the service linking Atlanta with Jo'burg. If you choose to organise your own intercontinental flights, then we prefer you to also book any connecting flights at the same time, with the same people who sell you your intercontinental flight tickets. . Eg: links between from Jo'burg and Livingstone or Maun.
