Botswana is an arid environment that depends highly on the rains each year to provide grazing for its wildlife and cattle. Desert animals like the gemsbok and springbok survive well in these dry harsh conditions.
You could time your trip to hit the migration of zebra and wildebeest in the Kalahari region during the rains. At this time of year, November through March, the Makgadikgadi Salt pans turn into salty shallow lakes, reflecting like mirrors the cumulus clouds above, creating surreal landscapes.
Unlike most rivers, the Okavango River, stops its journey to the sea, and creates the unique Okavango Delta. As it fans out over a vast flat area of desert, it creates a rich wildlife oasis unlike any other.
The animals here have evolved to live a good part of the year without water. Even large mammals like the brown hyena, gemsbock and springbok, can live without drinking water for months on end - they draw all their water from moisture in their food. We'll help you choose the right time of year to find all the wildlife including meerkats, brown hyena, and a great variety of insects and birds.
