Safari Calendar - Botswana


Peak breeding time, for many of the colorful migrant birds species. Excellent wild flowers, brilliant green foliage, constant sounds day and night - from insects and birds - the bush is very alive.

January is in the middle of the rainy season with spectacular afternoon thunder storms and warm days (average 30C plus) and nights (20C plus). Game viewing is average with active predators still chasing the fast developing young of their prey species. An ideal photography month for all the colors and dramatic skies.

The contrasts of the predators natural winter camouflage, with the summer colors makes for dramatic photos. More easily spotted by their prey species the predators have to work hard while the prey have a time of plenty.
