Zambezi Guestbook

Botswana has a long and dry winter period from May to December, January to April is the wet season. Safaris in Botswana can be very sensitive to seasonal changes depending upon what you'd like to see.

The following are rough guidelines but we strongly recommend that you obtain local advise during safari planning:

  • Okavango Delta: The floods arrive at Mohembo in December with a peak between January and March (sometimes as late as May). The flood in Maun usually reaches its peak in July or August (sometimes as late as September). Best game viewing is generally July to October. Some areas of the Delta experience heavy winds during August and September and some of the seasonal camps are closed during the wet season.
  • Moremi: Good all year but best during the dry months from May to October.
  • Chobe: The riverfront at Kasane and Linyanti is good all year - best from May to October. The Savuti area is best from November to May - if the Savuti channel floods or water remains in the Mababe Depression then May to October is excellent. Mid-winter can be very cold and the worst heat is encountered from September until the rains start.
  • Kalahari: During winter, the days are hot (mid 30's) with night-time temperatures at sub-zero. Summer temperatures are scorching.
