International Flights

There are no direct flights from the UK to Botswana.  We recommend the services of British Airways from London Heathrow to Johannesburg, with connecting flights to and from Maun on Air Botswana. Current timings (subject to possible change) are as follows:
Heathrow/Johannesburg. Depart at 21.20; arrive Johannesburg at 09.05 (next morning)
Johannesburg/Maun. Depart at 11.15; arrive Maun at 13.15
Maun/Johannesburg. Depart at 14.00; arrive Johannesburg at 16.00

You can book the flights yourself on the easy-to-use British Airways website.  South African Airways also offer daily flights from London Heathrow to Johannesburg.  Alternatively World Discovery can book the flights for you (we levy a service charge of £25 per person for this service).

EXTEND YOUR STAY

The most popular extension to the 'Delta Explorer' is a few days at the magnificent Victoria Falls.  Instead of flying back to Maun on DAY 7, you would fly to Kasane, from where it takes just 1 hour by road to Victoria Falls:

VICTORIA FALLS

The world-famous falls, known locally as "Mosi oa Tunya" (The Smoke that Thunders), were seen by David Livingstone in 1855 and named after the reigning monarch. Victoria Falls is the largest single sheet of water in the world, over 100 metres tall, and over one mile wide. There is a wide choice of accommodation at the Falls.
