There are many reasons for choosing Botswana:

This inland delta forms where the Okavango River discharges and is home to an incredible array of wildlife. It is home to the Moremi Game Reserve, a fascinating national park occupying a third of the delta. Hop in a canoe or watercraft and cruise past crocodiles, elephants, and hippopotamuses. Other wildlife includes lions, rhinoceroses, and giraffes. This dense population of fauna makes the Okavango Delta such a spectacular place to see.

Best Time to Visit

Visiting during the Dry Season - May through September - provides the best season for Botswana. Temperatures are also more accommodating during this time

Weather

In the heart of the Kalahari Desert, the climate of Botswana toggles between semi-arid and desert. Dry season lasts through winter (June to September), though the rain that occurs in summer is regional and unpredictable at best

How to Get There

Flying into Gabarone at Sir Seretse Khama Airport is most common. Maun has an airport close to the Okavango Delta to accommodate safaris and exploration, and also has direct flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town. Roads are suitable to enter Botswana, though many areas are remote and access to services can be limited
