Introduction to Botswana
Botswana is one of the world's most exciting travel destinations for exploring wildlife and offers some of the best wildlife safaris. The natural beauty of Botswana is found in its land formations, its wilderness, wildlife and its cultural diversity. Botswana safaris offer travelers wonderful and diverse experiences in pristine natural environments. In Botswana you can explore the Kalahari Desert, savannahs, wetlands, the Okavango Delta and the game reserves of one of the wildest regions in Africa.
The Safari Experience
A safari in Botswana is a magical experience. A feeling of extraordinary connectedness with Nature often occurs on safari -- a perfect blend of stunning and pristine landscapes, sky and water, the staggering abundance of wildlife that roams freely across the land... and you in the middle of it all.
Whether you choose to safari by boat, on foot, in an open rugged 4WD, on the back of a horse or an elephant, or maybe even a combination of these experiences, we want you to have an exciting, memorable, and most of all... safe... adventure of a lifetime -- again and again!
Best Times to Go on Safari
April through early November offer the best times to view large numbers of animals as they migrate towards the waterways of the Okavango Delta. It is during this dry season period that the big game, wildlife and birds congregate around water sources - the natural waterholes and the borehole-fed dams - and are at their most visible.
But Botswana is truly a year-round tourist destination. The landscapes change dramatically with the seasons, and wildlife roams freely across the game reserves and parks, providing unique safari experiences year-round.
November and December - the calving months - are an excellent time to witness nature's own timetable of regeneration.
December through February/March is the wet summer season. Temperatures during these months can be quite hot and rain may make some roads muddy and impassable. During the rainy summer season, animals in many game areas disperse, offering a different safari experience for the visitor.
The wet season, from January to March, sees the migration of large numbers of game into the summer grazing areas, while the delta comes alive with sounds of hundreds of bird species.
In March and April thousands of zebras and other animals migrate towards the Savuti area of Chobe National Park
