A visa is not required to enter the country:

The passport must be valid for at least six months after entering Botswana. A residence permit valid for a maximum of three months is issued at border posts without payment of fees.

The length of stay allowed is at the sole discretion of the immigration officer who stamps the traveller's passport. You should therefore check that the length of stay granted is sufficient to allow you to complete your journey. If this is not the case, you should calmly and courteously explain your reasons for requesting a longer period (up to a maximum of 90 days/year).
