Game viewing is easy during October; landscapes are clearer due to the vegetation having been grazed-down throughout the dry winter and animals gather around what water still remains in the parks. This gives the big cats good opportunities to hunt as it is easy to catch their prey. Hippos enjoy basking in the sun, and although this is common, (as Botswana has an average of 300 days of sunshine per year) it is particularly likely throughout the winter and into October.
Prices usually remain at peak levels throughout October but may start to drop towards the end of the month and in to November. Please get in touch with one of our destination experts to find out about the best places to stay and visit at your chosen time.
