5 Reasons to visit Botswana during the ‘Green’ season

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:

Amazing value

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!

It’s quieter

Abundant wildlife

As visitor numbers are far less during this period, you’ll enjoy more privacy as well as more personalised service, and less crowded safaris.

Abundant wildlife

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
