May weather and when to go
There is almost no rainfall throughout May and, as watering holes dry up, animals head towards more permanent sources of water. This is an ideal time to head to the Chobe River or Okavango Delta to have a better chance of seeing varied wildlife. In fact it is arguably as good as the peak season (June-August) but without the cooler temperatures. Similarly, Kwara Concession is a perfect place to look out for wild dogs who are known to hunt in large packs. So if you are lucky enough to spot them you’ll be sure to get a fantastic photo (or ten)!
Winter begins in May and sees the beginning of family safaris being offered in Botswana as temperatures are more comfortable and the rains of summer cease.
