BEST TIME OF THE YEAR
Cool winter months from May to August for game viewing.
Warm to hot summer months from October to March for bird watching.
Mostly high end lodges in keeping with Botswana’s low impact high return conservation policy.
Summer months offer great value at 30-50% lower rates.
Regular flights out of Johannesburg and more recently Namibia making an extended ‘ desert & swamp’ a safari possibility.
THINGS TO DO
Game viewing is unsurpassed free of tourist pressures within pristine habitats.
Birding by boat and dugout canoe (mokoro) in the quiet back waters.
Overland 4X4 guided excursions in search of wildlife.
Tree spotting within the Delta and star gazing at night.
Photographic opportunities in every direction.
WHERE TO STAY
Numerous lodge options exist within the Delta from ‘wet’ to ‘dry’ depending on specified interest and budget. A combination of three night stays taking in two or more very different lodges in different parts of the Delta is recommended. Mobile safaris offer a more rustic wilderness experience.
