Travel to Botswana
Botswana's jewel is the Okavango Delta ; an oasis of winding channels, open flood plains, lily-pad lagoons, small islands and rich pastures. Recently declared as a World Heritage Site all of this literally floats on a saturated sea of Kalahari sand with water levels that rise and fall with the season. Undoubtedly one of Africa's most beautiful destinations and wildlife wonders Botswana supports a diversity and concentration of wildlife, fauna and flora.

The best time to travel to Botswana
July to November - Drier months with no rain and the game tends to concentrate around permanent water sources, making for good sighting and photography.
November - The calving season for the plains game and baby antelope abound.
December to April, the wet season, the Central Kalahari and Makgadikgadi Pans fill with water and the game tends to concentrate on these lush plains , with nutritious grasses and the predators follow suite.
April to May - Buffalo and elephant migrate to the the Savute and Chobe Areas, making for magical sightings.
Game densities in the permanently flooded central parts of the Delta are pretty constant throughout the year. As the dry season progresses towards October, the game densities on the edge of this Delta increase as wildlife from drier areas move to this only available water.
Weather patterns and game distribution can be unusual and however much we might try and predict where what will be, it is not always so. A quick summary would be for desert areas- wet season visits and for rivers and delta- the dry season is best.
