February weather and when to go
February continues the peak rainy season, with heavy and sometimes long showers, making it a less favourable time of year to visit Botswana. You may still be lucky enough to see some of the herbivores give birth during this time as the season generally lies between December and March, but this is not guaranteed.
Rains can perpetuate whole days in February which is unlike other months in Botswana, so if you are able to travel at another time of year this may be preferable.
Wattled cranes have their biggest stronghold in the Okavango Delta and African skimmers are often seen swooping down to catch their prey, which can be a fantastic sight for avid birdwatchers and photographers.
With rains comes lush landscapes and often a great variety of birdlife.
