Why carry an IDP while driving in Botswana?
Your IDP is a valid form of identification in 150 countries worldwide and contains your name, photo and driver information.
It translates your identification information into 12 languages — so it speaks the language even if you don’t. Botswana highly recommends an International Driving Permit.

Driving in the Winter
Botswana is a tropical, warm country. Winter is the least of your concern. Rainy season is not as challenging as other warm countries. However, be sure to have emergency kits in your car at all time. It is good to be current with your vacations before visiting as well.
