BOTSWANA

Superb safari and low impact tourism destination
Low impact tourism

Why Botswana?

The Botswana’s parks are some of the most beautiful in Africa, depending on what you want to see will truly determine when to travel, but with it’s unique habitats and dramatic wilderness changes, anytime is a great time to visit Botswana.

Home to Okavango Delta, the yearly flooding of the basin allows the area to replenish its rich resources of lush grass that attract wildlife and brings new life to the region. To experience the peak of the floodwaters in the Delta, the best time to visit would be between June and September. The weather around these months is ideal, there is a very slight chance of rain with the days warm and the evenings slightly cooler. Peak season is between July and October, keep this in mind when booking as this is also the bussiest and most expensive so book early to avoid any disappointments.

Botswana will never dissapoint as a safari destination. It is well know for its low impact tourism and high end remote small scale eco lodges. African Travels offers low budget mobile camping safaris, self drives, fly-in safaris and international group tours. If you are happy to camp, you can explore these beautiful wildparks for a reasonable price.

Best time to travel to Botswana

Green season and dry season

The dry season runs from mid April through to the end of October with the rainy or ‘Green Season’ from November through to mid April.

The seasonal flood waters generally arrive in the Okavango Delta in June with the waters generally highest in July and Early August. The flood waters then start to recede from mid October onwards. Generally the best time for wildlife in the Delta is from May through to the end of October when animals are concentrated around the flooded areas.

October and November are the hottest months of the year with temperatures averaging 35 Deg C while June and July have cool nights with pleasant days in the mid 20’s.

Best time to travel

June till October is the dry season and therefore best safari months. 

Rainy season

December till March is the rainy season. The Green Season will start from January until April.

Cheaper rates

If you don’t mind some rain and you appreciate the Green Season then traveling from January until April is your best bet.
