&Beyond is the world's leader in luxury experiential travel and safaris. Our roots are in Africa and South Asia, where we run 33 magical safari lodges and camps in the most breathtaking parts of the continent and, through this, sustain hundreds of rural communities and millions of acres of precious, sometimes endangered wildlife land.
Frequent flights link Johannesburg to Gaborone, Maun and Kasane - the gateways to the national parks and wildlife areas.
Shuttle/charter flights are the only way of reaching the majority of camps in the Chobe, Moremi, Central Kalahari and Delta areas. Scheduled light aircraft flights depart from Maun and Kasane and handle all inter-camp transfers in this area.
Please note: Mack Air allows no more than 20 kg (44 lb) aboard a charter flight. This baggage limit applies to the total weight of both luggage and hand luggage (including camera equipment). No baggage in excess of this limit will be permitted to be flown in the passenger cabins of any of the aircraft and, if regarded as "untransportable" by Mack Air, the luggage will be refused embarkation in the interests of safety.
It is imperative that all luggage be packed in small, flexible, soft-sided bags. Large suitcases and any other rigid, inflexible luggage (including those with "pull along" handle frames and wheels) will not be permitted on the aircraft at all. All luggage will be packed in the aircraft's cargo pod and must conform to a size limit of 25 cm x 65 cm x 30 cm (10 x 25 x 12 inches).
Although Gaborone, Maun and Francistown are accessible by 2-wheel drive cars, travel into Moremi, Chobe and the Central Kalahari can only be undertaken by 4-wheel drive. Self-drive clients have access to most of the Moremi, Savute and Chobe lodges, but lodges in the Okavango Delta itself are only accessible by light aircraft.
A large variety of guided safaris are available. Please see our &Beyond Expeditions, detailing a great diversity of guided camping, personalised and lodge-accommodated safaris.
Trains and Coaches
We do not recommend these modes of transport for travel within Botswana.
Botswana is not really a self-drive destination unless you are prepared for serious 4x4 driving and check weather conditions carefully, as these impact on the road conditions.

Home to vast herds of elephant. Enjoy leisurely river cruises and game drives among the towering baobabs seeking out leopard and wild dog.
