Safari Enquiry

Some say Botswana is the most beautiful country in Africa this month – and it’s still shoulder season, so specials can be found.

Temperatures are definitely cooler in the mornings and evenings, so take layers. Kasane and the Chobe Riverside will be getting busier as the high season approaches. Game of all kinds will start to be drawn to water sources and is easier to see, but it’s still a little early to guarantee enormous herds. Nogatsaa can see a mini-migration of zebra and wildebeest in April and May.

Towards the end of the month, go tiger hunting – tigerfish, that is, “18lb of pure fight”. This is when smaller fish start moving back from the floodplains to the main river channels. Late May and June see feeding frenzies as tigerfish lie in wait.
