BOTSWANA SAFARI TOURS

Africa's best kept secret An African safari holiday in the stunning wildlife conservation areas of Botswana allows you to experience the untouched beauty of Southern Africa where animals still roam wild and free.

With nearly 40% of Botswana is dedicated to national parks, reserves and wildlife management areas, animals are free to travel across wide, unfenced tracts of land.

For the wildlife enthusiast, Botswana offers spectacular game watching that includes some of the largest herds of elephants that gather along the Chobe River floodplains. Botswana is also home to the Okavango Delta, named one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa and the Moremi Game Reserve, unrivalled for its wildlife and beauty. 

From the ‘Big Five’ – lion, elephants, leopards, rhinoceros and buffalo to over 400 species of birds, the Okavango Delta and surrounds is a part of Botswana not to be missed.

Botswana's climate is semi-arid. Though it is hot and dry for much of the year, there is a rainy season, from November to March. Rainfall tends to be erratic, unpredictable and highly regional. Often a heavy downpour may occur in one area while 10 or 15 kilometres away there is no rain at all. Showers are often followed by strong sunshine so that a good deal of the rainfall does not penetrate the ground but is lost to evaporation and transpiration.

'Pula', one of the most frequently heard words in Botswana, is not only the name of Botswana's currency, but also the Setswana word for rain. So much of what takes place in Botswana relies on this essential, frequently scarce commodity.

High season is from July to October. Accommodation is at a premium at this time as most camps/lodges have less than 10 rooms.  It is essential to book well in advance.

Shoulder season is April, May and June. This is also a ‘busy time’ in Botswana’s national parks and reserves.

Low/Green Season - from November to April is a less popular time to visit due to the rains that cause the wildlife to spread out.  It is however a lovely time of the year to visit as the landscape greens up and many of the antelopes have their young.  With that said, the rain causes some roads and areas to be inaccessible.

The warmest months are October and November  with an average daily high temperature above 33°C.   The coldest months are June and July with an average daily high temperature below 27°C.
