On request your private luxury safari itinerary could include alternative Okavango Delta luxury lodges or luxury safari camps.

Best time of year for a Botswana luxury safari in the Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta in Southern Africa 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 safari activities are, however, seasonal and also depends on the exact location of the relevant Okavango Delta luxury safari lodges or luxury camps. If you have specific game viewing activities in mind, always mention this in your initial booking request.
