Try popular meals or drinks so you can get to the heart of the local cuisine. Mopane worms and also lamb are popular ingredients here. Don't wrap up your time in Botswana without tasting seswaa (meat stew) as well as pap (maize porridge). To finish your typical local dining experience, try lerotse (melon). The bars in Botswana often serve Castle, so be sure to try one if you enjoy a good brew. If you fancy refreshment, ginger beer is a popular local choice.
The 30th of September is Botswana Day, so if you're vacationing here at this time, be aware that banks, business and some attractions may have changed opening hours as the country celebrates.
Sadly, vacations can't go on forever, so when it's time fly home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Gaborone, 160 miles (257 kilometers) to the southwest.
