BOTSWANA

Discover Southern Africa

BOTSWANA

Botswana is arguably one of the most sought-out safari destinations on Earth, and no wonder as it has the world’s largest inland wetland, completely surrounded by desert! The Okavango Delta and its majestic rivers serve as havens to an abundance of wildlife, whilst its tributaries reach out in all directions giving life into the Kalahari and the iconic Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. Safari experiences abound glide in a mokoro through the waterways, be mesmerized by elephants in the Chobe National Park, witness the annual Zebra migration, quad bike through the Pans, interact with a family of habituated Kalahari meerkats, go game viewing on horseback or mountain bike, meet with the San Bushmen to learn about their culture or helicopter over the Delta for a bird’s eye view of splendour

What Will the Weather Be?

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL

OVERVIEW

Botswana has a summer rainfall from November to March, however apart from the below avoid dates, the rest of the months are fantastic if you don’t mind the odd shower, as it’s off-peak season and the landscape is lush and green so a photographer’s dream. April and May the water levels begin to rise and October is the hottest month of the year.

November to March is best to see either the Nxai Pan migration or the Makgadikgadi migration.  

BEST TIME TO VISIT

June to September are the best months for game viewing and the water levels are high enough for water activities.

WHEN TO AVOID

January to March due to rainfall, with February generally being the wettest month of the year.

BEST GAME VIEWING

June to October are the best for wildlife sightings as the wildlife congregate at the water sources.

BEST FOR BIRDING

The first migrants arrive during September and by December there’s 20% more birds in Botswana. December to March is also very good.

Where Will You Travel To

REGIONS IN BOTSWANA

Botswana Okavango Delta

Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is a watery wonderland filled to the brim with wildlife. At approximately 15000 square kilometres, this magical oasis is home to a magnificent plethora of wildlife, many of which cannot be seen anywhere else. 

Botswana Chobe

Chobe NP

Chobe has a magnificent array of wildlife, however it’s famous for its impressive elephant and buffalo populations. The Chobe River boat trips provide excellent photographic opportunities as you marvel at the landscape, vegetation, vibrant birdlife and wildlife drinking along the banks. 

Botswana Savuti National Park

Savuti Area

This is a game-rich area within the Chobe National Park, but with fewer visitors, so the sense of seclusion is a bonus to the busy Chobe area. Huge breeding herds of elephant, plenty of wildlife attracting predators for excellent game viewing opportunities.  

Botswana Moremi National park

Moremi Wildlife Reserve

Set in the heart of the Delta, made up of tiny palm islands and waterways, the wildlife is exceptional – expect big herds of elephant and buffalo, a wide variety of antelope and other game, fantastic predator sightings and excellent birdlife with over 400 species in the area.  

Botswana Linyanti

Linyanti, Selinda & Kwando Wetland Reserves

These are vast areas of pristine wilderness located in the northern parts of Botswana. Permanent water sources, the Kwando and Linyanti Rivers, ensures big concentrations of wildlife and birdlife. Game drives, horseback safaris, boating, fishing or specialist walking safaris.  

Botswana Kalahari

Kalahari - Makgadikgadi Pans Park

Imagine mile upon mile of shimmering white salt pan stretching endlessly to the horizon; relics of Africa’s ‘super-lake’ that covered the Kalahari several million years ago. The wildlife is hardy and nomadic, but when the rains come so do the flamingoes, zebras and wildebeest!
