When to travel?
From streaming rivers, to sun-kissed horizons and luscious green shrubs, the Delta has many opportunities to create everlasting memories with special viewings. The best time to go to see this incredible creature is the middle of the dry season, when the area is most flooded, and food is plentiful, and you can find the dogs denning (April – September). All wonders of the African bush – the stars, the silence, and the sunsets – are what Moremi and Khwai are known for. Guaranteed great sightings.
April to September: The game viewing is bar none during these dry seasons. Watch this land come to life off when the water flows down from Angola. Early December: Antelopes give birth to their calves as its the calving season. This attracts predators tot he area – watch the circle of life unfold. January to March: Known as the green season – watch how Botswana becomes a kaleidoscope of colours in this untouched paradise.
But really, there’s no “best time” to safari, travel any time to appreciate everything Botswana has to offer.
