Safari Calendar - Botswana


The floods arrive, both in the Okavango Delta and the Kwando areas, after a slow path from the wet Angolan highlands thousand of kilometers away.

The paradox is obvious - the flood arrives when dust and dryness pervade and the rains have long gone. The leaves are falling off the trees the grasses are getting shorter every day and visibility is excellent.

The nights are still cold but the days are marginally warmer and the weather typical Botswana - sunny and clear.

More and more animals congregate near the water and flood plains - a special time of the year. Water spreads into areas where there was none the day before and the mekoro and boat trips become more exciting as new places can be accessed. Soft early morning and evening light combined with dust produces many photo settings.
