FAQ’s for Botswana Safari

  • When is the best time to visit Botswana?

    For wildlife safaris, the best time to travel to Botswana is from May to October. These months mark the dry season, a time during which the chances of spotting animals are higher due to the diminishing vegetation, which makes it easier to spot animals that congregate around waterholes. These months are also the peak season, which means it can be more expensive in terms of park prices and accommodations.

    Compared to the dry season, the wet season, from November to March, may have fewer animal sightings, but even with the dense vegetation, visitors can spot plenty of animals. Furthermore, a safari trip during the off-season will be easier on the pocket and less crowded.

  • Is Botswana a family-friendly safari destination?
