Botswana Travel DealsIn winter (May to October) in Botswana there is no rain hence the bushveld is thin and it is during this time that it is easiest to spot all the wildlife. But there is a cost to this great wildlife viewing and that is the price, yes high season in Botswana can be very expensive.
Summer in contrast to winter offers summer temperatures and a few thunderstorms, but in reality one has to remember that Botswana is 80% desert and deserts are known for there lack of rain (Maun records between 100mm and 400mm of rain in summer).
So apart from the lower safari prices what are the bonuses about travelling in Botswana in summer? Botswana landscapes turn from brown to green. Migratory birds return in their millions (best season for birding). Dramatic afternoon landscapes (best season for landscape photography). Mammals give birth at the beginning of summer (cutest month for wildlife). The dramatic Zebra migration (followed by the big Cats and Wild Dogs).
To round off the summer season, having a little bit of rain is a small price to pay when one considers the great wildlife, fantastic birdlife and not forgetting those amazing safari rates.
