By August animal herds grow larger on land and are commonly found near water sources with outstanding game viewing.

September sees the Okavango Delta water levels peak and the weather is now very hot and the land extremely dry. Predators can be seen dramatically chasing down plains game leaving an incredible cloud of dust in their path.

green SEASON

Rains become more frequent in December, days remain warm whilst the flood waters continue to dry out. The bush is turning green once more and animals begin calving.

January sees spectacular thunderstorms, warm days and the birthing season is at its peak.  Great game viewing can be had in the green season with an abundance of life and activity.

SHOULDER SEASON

November is extremely hot and anticipating the happy arrival of the first rains, whilst the Okavango flood waters begin to recede, The game viewing will be excellent until the first rains when animals will start to disperse throughout the park.

Trees start bearing fruit in April, the grass has grown tall and thick, guides are now working hard and relying more upon their expertise for your sightings.

May sees the start of the dry season with cool nights and warm days, the Okavango Delta begins to fill, seasonal pans dry out and game viewing is good.
