Travel Insurance going to 

Botswana (Capital Gaborone) is a central African Country just to the north of South Africa. For travel insurance purposes this means that it is rated as 'Worldwide excluding USA'. This means that although backpackers e.g. VSO will find premiums relatively cheap, the over 65, over 70, over 75, over 80 and over 85 will find premiums expensive especially if going on a long stay as few companies cover trips exceeding 31 days for the elderly.
