It was not a difficult decision for us to leave Johannesburg, we had nothing that was really keeping us there. We found ourselves in a rut, we weren’t enjoying our work environments, the crime was stressing us out and the countries politics was becoming a joke.

Our move to Botswana was the best thing we have done, this blog tells of the many adventures we have had and our life in this wonderful country

    Hi read your comments we retired and feel the same. Also want to leave Durban and perhaps settle in Botswana. Would like to know more about what our options are.
    Kind regards

      Hi Colleen

      I am not sure what the feelings are on retired people living in Bots. All I know it is very tough to get residency here, let alone citizenship.

      Bots policy is based on what can you do for the country.

      Hope this helps

        Tks Pete. We are planning a trip to Botswana this November. Is the Embassy in Gaberone? . Or who do you suggest we go and see just to get an idea.

        I think it would be best to go to immigration. I am not sure where it is in Gabs, but if you don’t have to go to Gabs I wouldn’t – the normal route into Bots for a tourist from SA is generally Martin’s drift. From there you can drive to Serowe. There is a big Immigration there that you could go to.
