Botswana is located in southern Africa and with the national airline, Air Botswana, you can fly from London to four different airports within the country: Francistown, Kasane, Maun and Gaborone's Sir Seretse Khama International airport. There are no direct flights from the UK so the majority will include two stopovers at either Dubai or Cairo and Johannesburg. There are three flights daily that fly from Johannesburg to Gaborone. The average flight time from London will be just over eleven hours, but this will depend on your stopover times. To get a cheaper deal be sure to book in advance as prices will rise over the busy summer season. For travellers who are visiting to go on a safari, you are advised not to bring hand luggage as it is likely they will not fit on the small aircraft. For travellers on a regular holiday, you are allowed up to 5kg hand luggage on board the light aircraft alongside the usual 15kg luggage allowance.
