Botswana: Kalahari, the Delta & Beyond
On This Green Season Safari, Lush Grass Draws Prolific Wildlife and New Babies Abound!
Botswana’s green season, its most productive and colorful time, offers natural spectacles most travelers miss. Low, sporadic rains in the Kalahari mark a time of dramatic change, signaling a great influx of migrating wildlife and plains animal births—"bush babies" are everywhere! The Kalahari’s high game concentrations and expansive open vistas make for some of the best cheetah viewing in southern Africa. Vegetation springs to life on the bleached plains of Deception Valley, attracting herds from all over the reserve. In the Okavango Delta, water-adapted mammals such as sitatunga and red lechwe thrive. The Savuti region is also superb for wildlife viewing, as stable populations of lion, leopard and wild dog are active amid a wide range of diverse habitats.
