A safari in Botswana is a unique experience which will leave you with memories for a lifetime. You can go on a game viewing safari in Chobe or Savuti and link it to a visit to the Okavango Delta and the Victoria Falls. A week in Botswana is ideal. Spend 3 days in the Okavango Delta, 3 days in a game lodge and then go from Kasane to Victoria Falls to see one of the great wonders of the world.
The best time to go on safari in Botswana is in the dry season which is between May and October. During the dry season the grass is shorter so it is easier to see the animals and also the drier weather means the animals have to congregate at watering holes. This makes it much easier to know where to wait and see the animals.
Another advantage of going in the dry season is you don’t have to worry so much about the mosquitoes. The daytime temperatures rise to around 25 degrees celsius and it is chilly at night. Still it is a very pleasant time.
The best time to visit the Okavango Delta is in July and August when the water levels are high. It is absolute bliss to lie back in a mokoro (canoe) and be poled along the waterways with the beautiful lilies and the feeling that you are indeed far from normal civilisation.
As if all this weren’t spectacular enough there is now the option of going on a houseboat on the Chobe river. Viewing game from the river is a sublime experience. You will be collected from Kasane by tender boat and taken to where ever the houseboat is currently sailing as it moves slowly and the tender boats can easily catch up with the larger, slower houseboat.
