Best time to visit Botswana

Desert, Delta, and stacks of game… Botswana is the purest safari destination, and it’s often the hardest to get right in terms of when to visit. The flood that hits the Okavango Delta needs to be timed just right: we say, aim for May to July, but for epic wildlife sightings, definitely consider September or October. To get the balance just right, take a look below at our month-by-month guide to when to visit Botswana:
