December to March

The migrant birds are at their best. Wildlife viewing is plentiful, as many game are giving birth during this time allowing for unique sightings. However, with the thicker vegetation the game is more dispersed and more challenging to see.

The bush is transformed into a beautiful oasis of colour and comes alive with young of every description. Local rains can be heavy and self-driving in Moremi is not recommended during this time unless you are very experienced.

April to July

Rains that have fallen in the catchment area have made it downstream and the water levels begin to rise, filling the large lagoons that Moremi is famous for. As the vegetation starts to thin out the wildlife becomes much easier to see.

Nights and early mornings can be cold, especially out on the water, but the day time temperatures are very pleasant.

August to November

While the rest of the country will be dusty, dry and parched, the Okavango and Moremi will be at its highest and still very green and beautiful.

Wildlife viewing is at it’s best, with game found congregating around waterholes. It is very hot at this time of year, especially in October.
