Safari Calendar - Botswana

September

The climate has changed and winter is all but gone. Night temperatures rise rapidly within the month and by month end the averages reach 15C plus and day temperatures soar well in the 30'sC. The sun shines, the skies are clear and it is really dry.

Unbelievably the elephant concentrate in still greater numbers as do the buffalo keeping the predators busy as the season takes it's toll on the prey species - a time of plenty for the lions.
The colors explode as the carmine bee eaters return from their winter grounds and the other migrants begin to arrive. The water levels have slowly started to drop as the waters from Angola have completed their trek. The fish begin to get active and some trees start to get the first green shoots - fed by the flood waters and temperatures and not by any rain as it is still some 6 weeks to the first rains.
