Chobe National Park,one of the wildlife areas of Botswana is very close to Victoria Falls about a 90 minute transfer drive meaning its relatively easy to combine a tour of Victoria Falls along with a Safari in Botswana.
Weather on a Botswana safari:
The best time for birding and lush vegetation in the Okavango Delta is during the rainy season (Nov-April) as the migrant bird populations are returning and the plants are flowering and green.
The best time for game viewing in the Okavango Delta is during the May-October period,as animals are concentrated along the flooded areas and the vegetation has dried out,making it them more visible.
Mid-winter (June/July/Aug) can be very cold and the worst heat is encountered from September until the rains start in late Nov/Dec.
During the rainy season ( Nov-Apr) , the annual Zebra migration to the Savute plains takes place. The local guides call it the “Little Serengeti.” This area is best visited from November to May.
