Safari Calendar - Botswana

August

The herds are getting larger and space near the water leads to tension between the breeding herds of elephant and the nights are filled with elephant sounds. The bush is bare and the dust pervades but the action is around and with patience and perseverance the rewards are great.


The floods have passed through the Delta and now reach Maun - leading to excitement for the locals in town and water related speculation is at a peak - how high,? when will it stop? How far will the water go ? The weather is warming even at night with daytime peaks averaging closer to 30C now and night time averages rising to around 10C. Another special time and peak visitor season.
The herons, storks and other birds start to congregate at the Godikwe heronry, near Kwara camp, and begin nest building.
