Green Season Special

November - June
Green Season Special Green Season Special

When Botswana puts on its cloak of green, life is abundant; even on the edge of the salt pans.

Prehistoric-looking baobabs hold up the sky with outstretched fingers. Lion and cheetah stalk the huge herds of zebra as they make their migration from Linyanti and Chobe to fresh pastures, trekking through the game-dense Nxai Pan National Park along the way. Central Kalahari, Deception Valley and the pans are home to springbok, gemsbok and blue wildebeest.

And, of course, the Okavango Delta is alive with literally hundreds of different species of birds, as well as elephants, big cats, giraffe, zebra, hyenas, wild dogs, buffalo, hippo, crocodiles…

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.

Catch an evening flight, arriving at Johannesburg the next morning to meet your onward flight to Maun, arriving soon after midday. From Maun a light aircraft will take you to Nxai Pans National Park. Because of its comparatively compact size – it is one of Botswana’s smallest parks – Nxai Pans has a great concentration of game.

Roaming across its horizon-wide plains and islands of acacia you’ll find impala and springbok, wildebeest, gemsbok, giraffe and elephants, not to mention vast herds of migrating zebras. And, of course, the big cat predators that stalk them. As well as lions, Nxai Pans National Park is recognised as one of the best regions to see cheetahs in action.

Stay: Two nights in a double room at Nxai Pan.
