Botswana is one of the best destinations in Africa during the green season of December through March. Much of the country is very dry and on Kalahari Sands, so when this receives any meaningful rain it springs into life and beauty, creating migrations of animals especially Zebra into these previously dry and now verdant areas, you will be amazed at the density of wildlife in these normally dry areas. Combining the Central Kalahari with the Makgadigadi Pans and then into the Okavango Delta is a wonderful combination and would suit any level of safari experience. It is also great for families as there are some really interactive activities like walking and learning from the San Bushmen with their amazing bush skills in the Kalahari or sitting with a family of Meerkats that may use you as a lookout post, these are very memorable experiences for anyone and help to bring the bush alive.
