Locally known as the ‘Green Season’, Botswana’s rainy, wet, summer season runs from November to March.
Lush and green
Contrary to popular belief, it is actually the best time to travel, especially if you’re planning to visit Botswana for the national parks of Moremi and Chobe. As they say, no rain, no gain! Here’s 5 reasons why:
You are likely to get much more affordable rates, as many camps tend to substantially drop their prices by as much as 50 per cent as it’s not the most popular season and considered the ‘low season’, which is great news for travellers on a budget.
You will be able to experience luxury for less!
As visitor numbers are far less during this period, you’ll enjoy more privacy as well as more personalised service, and less crowded safaris.
You’ll have opportunities to see baby animals, lots of birdlife, the big cats, scores of elephants, and cool down with the the magnificent rains.
As the zebra migration moves towards the Savuti area of the Chobe National Park, eagerly followed by big cats and wild dogs, you’ll have the chance to see tens of thousands of animals making their way across the country.
It’s lush and green
The landscape of Botswana is transformed from arid savannah to lush greenery with an increase in vegetation which makes the thrill of a sighting that much more valuable.
Amazing photography opportunities
From cloud-stacked skies leading to dramatic sunrise and sunset shots, baby animals, colourful foliage against a lush green backdrop and vibrant birds, there will be so many photo opportunities for a keen photographer to revel in!
