The Okavango Delta, Chobe’s Elephant Kingdom, and Victoria Falls

Trip Level

This trip is rated Level 2. It is a luxury camping and lodge safari with game viewing by 4WD vehicle. It can be enjoyed by anyone in reasonably good health. On safari, there are long driving days over rugged dirt tracks.

Weather

May through October is the dry season, with mild days and cold nights. Because of the minimal rainfall during this season, the bush turns golden brown, and animals concentrate around waterholes and rivers. The Okavango Delta's water level starts to rise during these months. October is also dry but daytime temperatures are in the mid to high 90s. The grass in many areas is beaten flat, game viewing is easier, and animals are well concentrated around major water sources.

November to March can be very hot, with most of the rainfall between December and February. This season characteristically has hot sunny days with afternoon thundershowers. This season is excellent for the viewing of newborn mammals, summer flowers, and the migration of rare birds. Predator viewing during this time remains quite good.
