We love green season in Africa. The landscapes are lush and beautiful, animals are in peak physical condition, there are fewer tourists and more. It’s an underrated and under-the-radar time of year to visit, and savvy travelers are smart to take advantage! Read on for our top 10 reasons to visit Botswana during the green season…

#2 Sightings of newborns – both big and small

#3 An increase in predator activity

#4 No single supplement at select camps (based on availability)
