What you should know about Green Season in Botswana

Green season in Botswana is not high season for African safaris, yet it is an amazing time of the year to visit this top safari destination in Southern Africa. It is summer in the southern hemisphere. All is lush and green and the wildlife is enjoying an abundance of water and food. It is also rainy season, but that does not mean, that it is raining every day and all day.

The desert turns green as well and the
second largest zebra migration of the world takes place. Thousands of zebras flood into the Makgadikgadi grasslands of the Kalahari, which offers spectacular sightings and is heaven for wildlife photography enthusiasts. The pans turn into abundant grass plains and attract the animals from the arid areas further south.

And all that can be enjoyed for
low season rates, which can be hundreds of dollars less than the rates from June to October. For a colorful safari adventure away from the crowds with spectacular sightings, warmth and sometimes a shower, you should try this amazing safari season. It is a great northern hemisphere winter escape and a real treat for African safari lovers.
