Botswana's winter is May to October when the weather is hot during the day (not stiflingly hot) and cold at night. Summer months (November to April) can be hot and humid and there is a chance of rain.
Experience Botswana at its best, from the floodplains of the Okavango Delta, to the salt flats of the Makgadikgadi to spend a week in two of the most visually stunning areas of Botswana. Discover just how vastly they differ in both habitat and ecosystems for a wonderfully authentic Botswana holiday.
Your holiday begins as you land in Maun and are transferred to your first camp in the Okavango Delta by light aircraft. You will spend your first two nights in a concession on the northern fringes of the Okavango Delta. Surrounded by seasonal floodplains this area is teeming with wildlife and you will spend your mornings and afternoons on game drives across this pristine wilderness. When water levels are high enough, we recommend you explore the waterways in a mokoro for a truly authentic experience. Your days typically end with a sundowner in hand while you enjoy a beautiful African sunset.
Today your holiday continues as you head further into the Delta to stay in the Khwai area where you will spend the next couple of nights. The Khwai area is notoriously game-rich and offers some excellent game experiences for those wishing to see as much as possible. With animals like lion, leopard, wild dog, buffalo, elephant and many more on offer, you may feel as though morning and afternoon game drives are not enough. In Khwai you also have the opportunity to get out on foot for a guided game walk, which we think is not to be missed. On a game walk you can get closer to the nature of bush and learn about how some of the smaller creatures live.
Your final stop is takes you to the stunning moonscape of the Makgadikgadi Pans where you will spend your final two nights. Close by is the Boteti River which offers a prime location to see the second biggest zebra migration in Africa, which draws in a lot of big predators including lion. Thousands of zebras congregate around the Boteti River, between May and September, after migrating back from the nutritious grasses that disappear due to the drying up of the water in the Salt Pans in the Makgadikgadi. This is a great area for more authentic experiences such as walks with the Koi-San Bushmen, visits out to the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans for a sleep out under the stars and boat cruises down the Boteti River. The best time to visit this area is in the dry season when you can try all of the activities and see the hundreds of zebras scattered over the horizon. However, even going out of this season the guiding is so good that they bring the area to life – perfect for someone who has been on safari before and is looking at doing something very different with a real out of Africa feel.
One of the best ways to see the big game of Botswana's Okavango Delta is on a game drive with a knowledgeable guide. Explore in open-sided vehicles to maximise your viewing opportunities, this is a truly wildlife rich environment.
Down in the Makgadikgadi Pans, and accessible from both Jack's and San Camp, is a very special, habituated clan of meerkats, which have been studied by scientists for years. Guests to Jack's and San are able to visit and observe quietly.
Staying in the Makgadikgadi during the dry season from May to November gives guests the opportunity to explore Botswana's salt pan by quad bike, a unique and fun adventure for the family.
