Botswana Safari Best Time To Go
The best time to go to Botswana is during the dry season between May and October. This is also the tourist Peak season and offers the best game viewing as the wildlife becomes increasingly concentrated around water sources. Don’t discount the rainy summer months between November and April though: the green season offers fantastic bird watching, lots of new-born animals and a whole load of special deals from lodges so is you are looking to reduce your Botswana safari cost this would be the best time to visit.
What makes Botswana such a special destination is that it offers travellers a wonderfully varied range of natural, unspoilt environments and classic safari adventures that will convince you that there really are wild places still left in the world today.
Areas like Chobe’s Savuti, the Linyanti/Kwando Swamps and the unpolished Kalahari gems of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, Central Kalahari Game Reserve and Nxai Pan National Park will delight the safari holiday-goer with their rugged, yet accessible, remoteness and are creaking at the seams with wildlife.
A safe, clean and sunshine-filled country, landlocked Botswana has been described as “Africa’s success story” since its independence in 1966 – and is a peaceful, well-tempered country.
It is also a land of the starkest contrasts
Modern, technology-driven urban areas are a short flight from the bows and arrows of San Bushmen hunting parties deep in the burning Kalahari; crystal-clear floodwaters attract massive concentrations of wildlife in parched, bone-dry savannas and woodlands; simple starlight reflects off the cut crystal of candle-lit dining tables.
Most of Botswana’s tiny population is concentrated in the kinder, more fertile southeast, leaving enormous tracts of uninhabited central and northern wilderness for you to experience an African Safari that will live on in your memory long after you’ve shaken the Kalahari sand out of your boots.
Game drives, boat trips, quad-biking, walking safaris and community visits are just some of the activities you can do on a botswana safari holiday.
