Getting around by air

The only scheduled flights to Botswana come from Johannesburg and Cape Town (South Africa), Victoria Falls and Harare (Zimbabwe), Lusaka and Livingstone (Zambia) and Windhoek (Namibia). No European or North American airline flies directly into Botswana, and most travellers fly into either Jo’burg or Cape Town (both of which are served by an array of international and domestic carriers) and hop on a connecting flight.

Airports & Airlines

Botswana’s main airport, Sir Seretse Khama International Airport, is located 11km north of Gaborone. Although it's well served with flights from Jo’burg and Harare, it’s seldom used by tourists as an entry point into the country.

Other, more popular entry points are Kasane Airport and Maun Airport.

The national carrier is Air Botswana, which flies routes within Southern Africa. Air Botswana has offices in Gaborone, Francistown, Maun, Kasane and Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe). It’s generally cheaper to book Air Botswana tickets online than through one of its offices.

In addition to Air Namibia and South African Airways, which do fly into Botswana, the country is served by a number of special charter flights.

Departure Tax

Departure tax is included in the price of a ticket.
