Safari Calendar - Botswana


The expectation - in fact - desperation for rain dominates all discussions - the residents and the animals all seek an end to the dryness and dust. Temperatures remain high both day and night and the game viewing improves - until the day of the first rains - normally around mid November.

The rain comes, the animals relieved, disperse to eat on new vegetation and drink from the seasonal pans. The birthing season begins with the Tsessebe , followed by the impala and Lechwe.

The predators seek out the vulnerable young and kill many times a day to get their fill - plenty of action and great visibility and short green grass - trees bursting into life - a wonderful time for the photographers - action - color and visibility.
