On request your personal safari itinerary could include alternative luxury lodges or luxury safari camps in the Okavango Delta.

Best time of year for an Okavango Delta luxury safari in Botswana

The Okavango Delta receives summer rains and winter floods, resulting in year-round availability of water and subsequently game viewing is excellent right through the year. The availability of water-based or land-based activities are, however, seasonal and also depends on the exact location of your chosen luxury safari lodge or luxury safari camp in the Okavango Delta. If you have specific game viewing activities in mind, always mention this when you initially enquire.
