Is it necessary to only use bottled water at Chobe Safari Lodge, Kasane
tape water is said to be safe for drinking in botswana. but to be on the safe side especially when you are a tourist who is not used to our water quality, I suggest you buy purified bottled water.

Like Chris T. said, the tap water in Botswana is generally safe, but I always do drink bottled water and use bottled water when brushing my teeth (this last step probably is not needed, but I prefer to always play it safe!). Eating salads, etc is usually fine. I was just in Botswana for a few weeks and had no problems whatsoever.
