Voice of Travelers to Botswana

Got a cheap air ticket to Botswana! Yay!

It is great fun to travel to your favorite country with a cheap air ticket. These days, it is so hard to find an affordable ticket on good airlines. Usually, if the ticket is cheap the airline offers bad service as well. Thanks to my travel agent, I got an inexpensive ticket to Botswana. I was traveling from Heathrow in London to Gaborne, Botswana. I was hoping that I could get a return ticket so that I don't have to go through the hassle of purchasing one from Botswana at higher rates. My travel agent kept all of my specifications in mind and emailed me my ticket a day before I had to leave. I was so happy with the rate I got. I printed my ticket and presented it in the airport while boarding the next day. The flight was fun-filled and the service was top-notch!

Travelling from Cape Town to Gabone via Bus!

I was on my school break and I wanted to explore Botswana via Bus! I looked around for a bus ticket for the weekend on any of the top quality bus services including Intercap and Greyhound. Ticket wise, these bus services are very similar. The buses are very luxurious with comfortable seats and large leg space. I used Intercap and got my ticket at an affordable rate. I had a 2 legged route that ran from Cape Town to Johannesburg to Gaborone. The safe option for me was to purchase a full ticket beforehand for all the routes. The ride was safe, timely, and enjoyable. I would advise everyone to keep their ticket with them at all times and always check your ticket before boarding the bus in order to avoid any inconvenience. Also, don't give your ticket to anyone as this causes a lot of trouble.

Safari tour ticket!

There are so many safari tours in Botswana that you get confused. I opted for a safari tour which had an affordable ticket. I found the deal and booked the ticket in advance. I never knew that Botswana was so pretty with natural beauty and animal reserves. Our ticket included meals, accommodation, and travel. I got to see the most amazing parks, sanctuaries, and deltas in Botswana. The itinerary accompanied the ticket received in email. I have kept my ticket with me and posted it on my travel wall. I have this amazing ticket collection!
