South Africa vs Botswana

South Africa vs Botswana Botswana is known for its pristine wildlife destinations and natural world wonders

Botswana is a more pure wildlife destination than South Africa. Its main safari reserves, for instance the Okavango and Chobe, are less accessible than their South African counterparts, far wilder in feel, and tend to cater more to high-cost, low impact fly-in tourism. Botswana thus offers more of an overt wilderness experience than anything in South Africa, but it is not well suited to budget-conscious travellers, or to DIY self-drivers in the way that Kruger or Pilanesberg are.

South Africa is a more family-friendly and affordable destination than Botswana, and it has a far greater variety of attractions – there is nothing in Botswana to compare to historic South African cities such as Cape Town or Stellenbosch, or to the lofty heights of the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg, and it is a landlocked country with no coastline whatsoever as compared to 2,500km in South Africa. South Africa is also the only country in Africa to boast several malaria-free safari destinations.
