In general, Botswana is an expensive safari destination. The most budget-friendly option is a guided, mobile tented safari. Usually these mobile overland safaris have scheduled departure dates and take the form of participation camping safaris for those on a tight budget, or luxury overland camping safaris for those with a more generous budget. The most luxurious way to experience Botswana is to do a fly-in safari to a private game lodge or luxury tented safari camp.
Almost all lodges in Botswana charge in US Dollars. Some lodges are situated in the national parks and do not offer night drives or bush walks. They are also not permitted to drive off-road. Generally, lodges situated on private concession areas are able to drive off-road and at night.
