When is the Best Time to Visit Botswana?
The best time to visit Botswana is undoubtedly during the months of May to October, which makes up the dry season. During this period of dry winter weather - and particularly in the months of June-August - the Okavango Delta swells immensely, creating a network of channels that draw wildlife from the surrounding regions. The high density of animals is one of the greatest wildlife spectacles in Africa and is truly a sight to behold, making May to October the best time to visit Botswana.

Botswana Tour Highlights
The Okavango Delta is a large inland delta that drains the summer floodwaters from the Angola Highlands. During peak flood season the waters of the delta swell to 3 times their regular volume and draw vast numbers of wildlife to the region, including a vast array of large mammals and endangered species. The Okavango Delta was listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, and is a fantastic destination to explore on Botswana tours.
Chobe National Park
Although created earlier in 1960 as the Chobe Game Reserve, Chobe National Park was officially declared in 1967 and was the first national park in Botswana. In addition to being the oldest, Chobe National Park is also the most biologically diverse, being divided into four distinct ecosystems: the hinterland, the Linyanti Marsh, the Savuti Marsh, and the Serondela.
