When to go to Mombo Camp
Many people ask us when the best time of year is to be at Mombo to see the best game. The answer is simply impossible to give, there are benefits to each time of year and to each season. Primarily, this is the reason that Mombo has a flat rate throughout the year.

One of the main reasons is that the vast majority of game at Mombo is resident, roaming throughout the concession but rarely leaving it. The predators for example, especially the lion and leopard, (what has made Mombo so well known) are primarily resident to the Mombo Concession and have become well known to the guides in camp; they can be seen throughout the year.

Click on the link on the right hand side "Seasons in Botswana" give a summary of what each month of the year has to offer and what the game is doing at the time of year you are looking to travel.

Overall, it is true to say that Mombo consistently has some of the best safari in Africa. The concentrations of all the predators and plains game fluctuates slightly but not to a noticeable effect.


When to go, weather-wise

Weather wise, Botswana’s climate is subtropical with large fluctuations of temperature between day and night and low rainfall throughout the year.

September and October are the hottest months, with temperatures peaking at over 100 degrees Fahrenheit in October. This time of year also heralds the arrival of the very first rains that continues through to March, petering out at the end of the month. The wettest months are January and February.

With all that said, and taking into consideration the fact that you will not just be visiting Mombo, the best time of year to visit the country is between May and October, when the Delta is in flood, the temperature is perfect and game viewing is at its most spectacular. November and December also make great times to be on safari because of the noticeable transformation of the habitat and all the new born that spring to life at the first drop of rain.
