From the Central Kalahari Game Reserve to the Okavango Delta, this itinerary will take you to some of Botswana’s most idyllic and iconic wildlife locations during the green season.

In Botswana the rains arrive during the summer and when they appear the scenery undergoes a profound transformation. For this part of the year, the arid plains are rejuvenated as the bush becomes a vivid green and wild flowers begin to emerge. The wildlife is just as spectacular. There is an influx of new life as a number of species choose to bear their young at this time of year, and this attracts cheetah, leopard and other predators who try to take advantage of these new arrivals.

By staying in comfortable and authentic safari camps you will be in prime position to see the wildlife as you venture out on game drives, nature walks and boat excursions. Visiting in the green season means you will have an opportunity to see a remarkable range of wildlife, including the Kalahari black-maned lion, wild dog, giraffe, elephant and thousands of migrant birds.
