Best time to go to Botswana
Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.
Each Suite is designed to mirror the shapes and shades of the pristine Delta surroundings that it overlooks. The suites are elevated on wooden decks above the ground and feature a large viewing deck, plunge pool, sala and sun loungers. The suites can accommodate 2 people and include a luxurious en-suite bathroom.
The spacious 2 bedroom Family Accommodation can accommodate up to 4 guests and feature separate en-suite bathrooms. The master suite includes a sunken lounge that can be opened up to the spectacular Delta views. The unit shares a spacious deck with a private pool and outdoor seating area.
