Safari Calendar - Botswana

May

Flood waters from Angola start to reach the top of the Okavango Delta and begin their slow and deliberate progress through the Delta.

The rains are over and the nights are cooler with temperatures averaging 15C while day temperatures still warm have lost their edge and maximum temperatures seldom exceed 35C. Jackets are sensible for night drives.


The buffalo begin to group into large herds and visit the rivers more often as the seasonal pans begin to dry.

Breeding herds of elephant increase in density daily as they visit the permanent waters. The greens start fading to the duller dry season colors and the predators begin to enjoy themselves again as their colors blend with the surroundings again. The migratory birds begin their flights to winter feeding and breeding grounds in far away places.
