Searching for something that won't cost a fortune? Check out the economy car. This small but dependable vehicle is the most popular sort of rental car in Botswana (and perfect if you're traveling on a shoestring). Fuel up the tank for a song and you'll be easily navigating cities like Gaborone and Francistown in no time.
Needless to say, you can't leave Botswana without exploring a few of its natural wonders. Go for a road trip around rivers and savannahs from the comfort of something bigger, like a mid-size or full-size SUV. Load up the gang and whatever supplies you need — these vehicles offer ample space for your gear without compromising on room.
You'll be glad to know that there's a great range of luxurious rental vehicles available in Botswana. What you go for depends on your funds and the activities you've got planned. Specialty and prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about comfort and class. If you're splashing out, why not book a high-end SUV, or perhaps a stylish medium-sized vehicle? On the other hand, if you're just after a set of wheels to whiz around town in at the cheapest price possible, you're better off going with a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your wallet).
