Green season is a full on sensory experience and one of the best times to safari if you’re a budding shutterbug.
From November to April the summer rains leave lush green grasses and flowering plants in their wake, the animal action bursting into life as calving season begins. Migratory birds fill the skies with colour, and better air and light conditions along with dramatic short-lived thunderstorms (an afternoon storm may reward you with a rainbow or two) make photography all the more impressive. An added plus, the longer days mean you’ll have more time on the game drive.
In the Okavango Delta game viewing becomes even more rewarding as the floodwaters withdraw. This leaves more areas open for bush walking. Expect to see large numbers of sitatunga (a swamp-dwelling antelope), red lechwe, and a plethora of migratory birds including the Woodland Kingfisher. Mokoro safaris will still be available in the heart of the delta, making this the ideal time to combine water and land based wildlife pursuits.
