About Landscape

ETS Security Overview – Botswana

Botswana is generally considered one of the safer countries in Africa for business and tourist travel. Like every major city, Gaborone in particular, does have a mix of both non-violent petty crime, and violent crime, including armed gangs that perpetrate home robberies and targeted attacks on businesses.

Opportunistic non-violent crime, including smash and grabs from vehicles and theft of cell phones and valuables both in public and at hotels, does occur. Reports have been noted of break-ins and thefts from safari lodges.

Sexual assaults and incidences of rape have occurred and solo female travelers are at increased risk.

The biggest risk, as with most countries, is assessed to be road traffic accident. The country has good tarmac roads for the vast majority; however, driving skills and standards are assessed to be minimal, and many drivers ignore road rules and laws. It is important to note that the ETS team has seen and experienced regular acts of dangerous driving by locals, including speeding and drunk driving. There are frequent serious traffic accidents.

Also, driving in rural areas increases the risk of hitting stray wildlife and livestock.

Remote area and travel away from the major cities increases risk due to varying traffic conditions and reduced support infrastructure, including emergency medical, vehicle breakdown, and climate risks. It is strongly advised to seek secure transportation and journey management support services if traveling outside of the city. Emergency supplies and contingency planning should be accounted for.

The police force in Botswana is a small but well-trained force. However, the incidence of violent crime has led to the hiring of private security companies by both the public and private sectors.
