November – March
This safari is customized to take advantage of the best opportunities for the season to observe the diverse wildlife in extremely rich habitat areas. By traveling in the green season, you can receive an outstanding value in Botswana, where the wildlife viewing is 80 to 85% as good as the peak season, while the prices are nearly 50% of what you would pay July – October.
The green season provides a unique opportunity to combine desert and delta landscapes with wildlife attracted to the desert regions this time of year due to the access to good grazing in the green season. This itinerary combines the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Kwando River concession and the Okavango Delta. Your camps are in private concession areas (except for Tau Pan, which is one of only two permanent camps inside the Central Kalahari Game Reserve), where you have access to exclusive wilderness, off-road driving, night drives, walking, and boating. The areas are beautiful with a great variety of habitats and species, you will likely see between 30 and 35 different mammal species along with a spectacular array of birds and other wildlife.
The Okavango Delta is one of the world’s largest inland water systems and is Botswana’s most famous and popular region for safari. Millions of years ago the Delta once flowed into what is now known as the Makgadikgadi Pans, but due to activity in the earth’s crust plates uplifted causing a break in the layers of rock interrupting the flow of the river, causing it to back up and create what we see today. This transformation has created an unparalleled system of waterways and channels, that support an extraordinary kingdom of flora and fauna that would have otherwise been a flat, dry grassy desert.
