Safari Calendar - Botswana

October

It is hot - really hot but never will you experience game viewing like this - well worth the sweat. Day temperatures rise regularly above 40C and nights are warm with averages in the 20'sC. Start early and leave late - that is the solution.

Safaris being in private areas only departs on game drives after 17h00 and returns well after dark.


There is no place to hide everything is bare and the grasses are eaten or trampled. Night drives are at their best and the pervading dust makes all scenes dramatic. Predators chases erupt into clouds of dust as the eternal game of eat and be eaten plays out daily in the very open plains. Fishing frenzies with the annual catfish (barbell) runs in the rivers.

The Godikwe heronry near Kwara is in full activity with thousands of birds breeding and nesting.
