Chobe in September
It’s pretty hot by day now, with Kasane temperatures averaging about 30°C/86°F. The first bird migrants return: yellow-billed kites and carmine bee-eaters are first back; woodland kingfishers come later. Botswana’s Independence Day is celebrated on 30 September.
The dry season continues, so, once again, the Chobe and Linyanti Rivers are the places to be for big game sightings on safari. The Selinda Spillway may have enough water for mokoro paddling. Tiger fishing on the Chobe River should still be good (although the fish can be caught year-round).
