10 Reasons to Visit Botswana in the Green Season

July 23, 2014  By: Gretchen

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…

#1 Outstanding value – contact us about special offers

#2 Sightings of newborns – both big and small

#3 An increase in predator activity

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

#5 Fewer people means a more exclusive experience

#6 Delight in exceptional bird watching – a large variety of migrant birds arrive in February and March

#7 Excellent for photography as the bush is lush green with crystal clear air

#8 The calving months are an excellent time to witness nature’s own timetable of regeneration

#9 Green season sees the migration of large numbers of game into the summer grazing areas

#10 Summers (particularly from December through to February) are known for beautiful warm days with the occasional afternoon showers cooling down the surrounding area

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
