Botswana is one of the world’s unique ecosystems and top destinations for quality of wildlife viewing. For the first time traveler, great value will be found traveling in the “green season” of November to March” when the rains have come and the animals begin their migration movements, especially to the Kalahari. April and May are also fairly good months for game viewing when choosing your camps carefully.
The Savute, like the northern part of Chobe National Park, is famous for its lions and bull elephant herds. The area is also home to eland, kudu, roan antelope, sable antelope, waterbuck, tsessebe, giraffe, wildebeest, impala and many other antelope, along with numerous predators, including leopard, cheetah, wild dog, spotted hyena, black-backed jackal and bat-eared fox. The Savute region is affected by the seasons, and is at its best in the wet season (November to March), or during the early dry season (April to May). When the rains fall, from November to April, the plains become green and large herds of zebra and tsessebe are present. From July to October it is typically dusty and dry, and bull elephants dominate the small, man-made waterholes.
