Boasting over 300 days of sunshine, Botswana is one of Africa’s premier safari destinations and its diverse landscapes guarantee exceptional wildlife encounters year-round. However, from the months of December, the summer rain starts to fall, transforming the dry African bush into a lush green landscape.
Why travel in the green season, you say? As the summer rains of the green season erupt over the parched landscapes, the crowds from the high season retreat and those who remain can experience an exclusive Botswana safari. Flowers come into bloom, birds fill the air and animals bring their young to feed on the fresh grass shoots as predators wait in anticipation on the sidelines. Escape the cold winters of the northern hemisphere and experience Botswana’s green season on a 5 day eco-friendly Okavango Delta and Chobe Safari with Jumbari Family Safaris.
Days 1 – 2
Starting in Chobe National Park, experience an authentic African safari from your base at the eco-friendly Elephant Valley Lodge. Spend your days exploring this wildlife-rich safari destination on 4×4 game drives and boat cruises along the Chobe River, where herds of elephant drink from the river banks.
Days 3 – 5
Next up, you will take a scenic flight over the Delta to the low-impact Kadizora Camp. Located between the Vumbura River and Selinda Spillway, Kadizora is ideally located to explore the world’s largest inland delta, the Okavango Delta. Join your expert guide and traverse the delta region in an open safari vehicle, paddle through the waterways on a mokoro safari, or get up close to nature on a walking safari.
