'There can be few people better qualified to write a travel guide on Botswana than Chris McIntyre...Like all good guide books, this is packed with all kinds of practical and wide-ranging advice - from driving near elephants to maps with GPS references and how to shake hands Botswana style....What's more, even the nuts-and-bolts sections are well-written and make enjoyable reading. In particular, the region-by-region chapters on the country's reserves, camps and lodges had me longing to jump on the first plane to Maun. Each area is painstakingly described - clearly the result of meticulous first-hand research...If you can take only one book to Botswana, make sure it's this one.' BBC Wildlife 'Gives a complete coverage of this unique ecosystem and its bird and plant life.' NHBS (Natural History Book Services) 'The definitive guide for wildlife enthusiasts.' Wanderlust '...excellent companion for your Okavango trip.' Travel Africa

In sum, this is a sizeable book with the level of detail you need.
Note that this guide only deals with Northern Botswana, ie there is nothing on Gabarone here.
Thorough, concise, well written, this is the best travel guide out there from the best series of guides.
This informative guide is well worth the money and will save you time, hastle and allows you to stay one step ahead. They're even endorsed by Michael Palin for crying out loud!
A good guide, well worth the money and far better than othr guides.
The book is good as far as it goes, but unfortunately is not a copmplete guide to Botswana
In the field we found the guide easy to use and accurate with lots of good practical tips that helped us get more out of our trip. We certainly felt we chose the right guidebook in this Bradt Guide. Recommended.
