Car Hire Botswana

Most travellers will arrive at Gaborone’s Sir Seretse Khama Airport or Maun Airport and collect a hire car from there. It makes sense or you’ll find yourself packed into a local bus or on a white knuckle taxi ride. Hiring a standard car at Gaborone or Maun airports will restrict your movements greatly for outside of the cities, roads are often little more than gravel or dirt tracks. Any Airport Car Hire has a range of 4 x 4 vehicles you can rent at Gaborone Airport or Maun Airport so you can explore the game reserves and plains of this fabulous country.

Botswana is a relatively safe country when compared to its African neighbours, courtesy of the economic prosperity brought about by diamond mining and tourism. When driving your hire car around Botswana, you can expect to be safe almost anywhere provided common sense is used. The capital Gaborone is worth a day or two of your time for the old colonial buildings and the country’s national museum which tells the story of its time as Bechuanaland and its transformation through independence into Botswana.

The country’s main highlights though are the safari parks, some of the best in Africa because of their beauty, the unique ecosystems and the density of animal populations. This is where hiring a 4 x 4 car from any of Botswana’s airports comes in really useful. Collect a pre-booked hire car from Gaborone Airport and within an hour you could be driving through herds of zebra or buffalo.

The best of the numerous parks is undoubtedly the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta where the Okavango River spreads out across a plain, eventually evaporating before ever reaching the sea or a lake. In a four wheel drive vehicle hired from Maun Airport or any of the other Botswana airports, you’ll be able to edge down sometimes muddy tracks in safety, creeping up on herds of antelope drinking from the water whilst being carefully watched by hungry crocodiles.

If you want to see elephants in abundance, drive your Gaborone Airport hire car to Chobe National Park, renowned for the large number of elephant families whilst it also has numerous zebra and lions. Makgadikgadi Pans National Park is a huge area of salt flats which after the rains become the feeding grounds for millions of birds, a marvellous sight, especially as the shimmering heat disperses the water and the salt glows blindingly.
